What is Crawl Space Insulation?

Crawl space insulation is installed beneath your house, typically on crawl space walls and/or between the floor joists. It is crucial for maintaining energy efficiency and indoor air quality. 

Insulating your crawl space shields against heat loss and moisture intrusion, reducing issues like mold and pest infestations. However, crawl space environments pose unique challenges, and using the wrong type of insulation can have adverse effects.  

When AquaGuard insulates your crawl space, you can rest assured that we use premium materials, such as ExTremeBloc™ insulation panels. This innovative solution withstands humidity and is the best option for controlling crawl space environments and improving your home

Signs You Need Proper Crawl Space Insulation 

Recognizing the need for crawl space insulation prevents costly future repairs and ensures your home’s safety. However, we don’t recommend entering your crawl space to inspect the insulation, as it can be hazardous and unclean.

Instead, there are other signs you can look for, including:

These symptoms are warning signs of moisture problems that can cause significant damage if overlooked. If you see any of these issues, schedule a free inspection with crawl space professionals like AquaGuard immediately. 

Why is Crawl Space Insulation Essential?

Inadequate crawl space insulation has several negative effects. Because ignoring it increases humidity levels and mold growth, it also raises the cost of repairs and poses potential health risks. 

These issues impact your crawl space and jeopardize your home’s safety and your family’s health. Insulating your crawl space is crucial for safeguarding what matters most.

We recommend avoiding DIY insulation methods that often fail to address the root problem. Professional repair is more effective. At AquaGuard, we emphasize proactive measures as part of our holistic approach. 

3 Common Types of Crawl Space Insulation

There are several crawl space insulation options, so it’s crucial to have a professional inspection to understand the specifics of your situation. Here are the most common crawl space insulation types in Atlanta: 

1. Fiberglass Insulation 

Fiberglass is a popular insulation material in homes across the country, but it’s unsuitable for crawl spaces. Typically, this soft material is placed between the floor joists and in the rim joists in the crawl space to help regulate the temperature of the floor above. However, fiberglass insulation is susceptible to moisture, mold, and pests. 

2. Spray Foam Insulation

Spray foam insulation is sprayed directly onto surfaces like crawl space walls and joists to insulate against extreme temperatures. However, there are better choices for crawl spaces. In a damp crawl space, spray foam actually promotes mold growth, emits chemical odors, and attracts termites. 

3. Foam Board Insulation

Consider a high-quality foam board insulation like AquaGuard’s exclusive ExTremeBloc™ for optimal crawl space insulation. These large, pre-cut panels are custom-fit and installed on interior crawl space walls, featuring reflective surfaces for enhanced heat retention.

    Crawl Space Insulation FAQs

    The R-value is a measure of the insulation material’s ability to resist heat flow. A higher R-value indicates better thermal resistance, which means the insulation can more effectively prevent heat transfer between the crawl space and the living areas above.

    The lifespan of crawl space insulation varies depending on the material used and the conditions in the crawl space. At AquaGuard, our insulation panels are engineered to last. We also recommend periodic inspections to assess the condition of the insulation. If it has been compromised by moisture, mold, or other factors, replacement may be necessary.

    The cost of crawl space insulation installation varies based on the size of the crawl space, the type of insulation material used, and any additional repairs.
