Many homeowners think of their walls and attic as places that need insulation, but many people don’t think about what happens below their feet. One place that insulation can really help in many cases is in your home’s crawlspace, where outside air can easily be trapped and your ventilation system may be stored. If you haven’t considered it before, here are three reasons crawl space insulation may benefit you at your home:
- Reduced Allergens – Crawl space insulation is a great way to protect your ventilation system by blocking allergens that try to come in from the outside air. Your vents will stay cleaner and dryer, and therefore you will have fewer problems with allergens escaping into your home through your vents.
- Improved Temperature Regulation – Do you always hate putting your feet down on the cold floor as you get out of bed or step out of the shower? Well, before you decide to invest in an expensive floor heating device, consider crawl space insulation as a less expensive investment. Adding insulation below your floor can help improve the temperature regulation in your home and provide warmer flooring for your feet to land on.
- More Efficient HVAC – As with any home improvement investment, most of the time we want to know if we can save money. Luckily, crawl space insulation is a great way to tell your HVAC system it doesn’t have to work as hard, saving you money on your energy bills each month.
