The benefits of adding insulation to your crawl space

The benefits of adding insulation to your crawl spaceTaking care of the insulation in your home should always be a priority. If you notice that your thermostat is set to a high temperature, but your floors still feel cold, there is a chance that your crawlspace could use some additional insulation. The insulation of your crawlspace can play an important part in the energy efficiency of your entire home’s system, especially in a larger building. Consider some of the following advantages that you can enjoy with proper crawlspace insulation.


One of the first advantages that homeowners will notice is that, over time, you will have the chance to enjoy greater savings and energy efficiency. Many homeowners report that they actually recover their investment once they insulate their crawlspace, as they will not have to worry about paying so much when their heating and cooling systems are in use. Because you do not need to keep your furnace running for as long, you can enjoy savings to the point where your insulation project ends up paying for itself with the money you save.

Longer-lasting HVAC Systems

Most heating systems break down prematurely when they have to work harder. With added insulation in a home’s crawlspace, the HVAC system (heatingventilating, and air conditioning) does not have to work as hard as it prevents the warm or cold air from escaping. When your crawlspace system is combined with the rest of the home’s insulation, you can keep outside air infiltration to a minimum, which can provide your heating and cooling system with the rest it needs to function better in the long term.

Better Indoor Air Quality

Finally, when the insulation system is installed correctly, homeowners will have a much easier time keeping out allergens and other irritants. This is especially helpful if homeowners live in an area that features heavy amounts of local pollen and allergens. When proper insulation is combined with a high-functioning ventilation system, homeowners will be able to keep the air inside of their home even cleaner.
