Did you know that a home with a nasty, dirt crawl space costs more to heat and cool?
Homes with dirt crawl spaces have damp air due to moisture rising up from the dirt floor. That damp air uses more energy to heat and cool, which in turn costs you more money. Everyone turns their AC up when the weather outside is humid (which means the air is full of water)
But what if that humid air is in the inside of your home? Can you imagine your energy bill? You are using valuable energy costs to remove this humidity from the inside air, while allowing the dampness and moisture build-up to create a perfect environment for mold and mildew to grow.
If you rid your crawl space of humidity, you will save money on heating and cooling costs.
You can save up to 20% on every energy bill if you insulate or dehumidify your crawl space. That money really adds up!
Some important things you can do to your crawl space to lower your energy bill include:
- Install crawl space vents to seal off the space from the outside environment
- Close off all tiny crack and spaces where air and light can enter your crawl space, and
- Insulate your crawl space with CleanSpace Vapor Barrier, so you not only save even more money, but also to create a healthier and usable space
