Do you need to insulate your home? In our experience, insulating is one of the best ways to help maximize the energy efficiency of your home. Many homeowners wonder about the crawl space, which is part of a home yet not quite a living space.
Is insulating crawl spaces important? In one word, yes!
How Does Insulating a Crawl Space Help Improve Energy Efficiency?
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, homeowners should insulate crawl spaces and unheated garages. Although they aren’t living spaces in your home, they are important when it comes to helping you save on your energy bills!
Crawl space insulation (and sealing) can help maintain your entire home’s energy efficiency. Without insulation, heat and cool air are easily lost—in fact, crawl spaces that aren’t insulated can be huge sources of energy loss.
If your crawl space is ventilated, it’s important to insulate the subfloor and between the floor joists. For unventilated crawl spaces, focus on insulating the walls.
Crawl space insulation can help:
- Reduce your energy bills
- Make your home more comfortable
- Improve the efficiency of your air conditioner and furnace
