Attic & Crawlspace Improvements for Heating Season
The attic and crawlspace often waste the most energy in the home. If you really want to lower your heating bills this winter, consider making these improvements before the heating season is in full swing.
Since as much as 25% of heat loss happens in the attic during the winter. Insulating your attic will go a long way in keeping your home warm when it’s cold out.
What It Does
Heat in your home rises, and if your attic is not insulated, that heat will escape straight through the roof of your home. Attic insulation keeps your home warm by keeping heat in your living spaces, right where you want it.
More stable indoor temperatures
Less work for your heating system
Lower heating bills
No ice dams on the roof
The crawlspace is often a site for moisture issues and mold, which can negatively affect your home’s energy efficiency and indoor air quality. Crawlspace encapsulation keeps your crawlspace clean and dry.
What It Does
Crawlspace encapsulation involves installing a vapor barrier along the floor, sealing the foundation vents, and installing insulation along the walls. These steps together prevent moisture infiltration and help regulate temperatures in the crawlspace.
Better indoor air quality
More comfortable living conditions
Fewer mold and moisture issues
Less likelihood of structural damage
Fewer pest problems
