An encapsulated crawlspace is advantageous to your main living spaces.
Unless you need to check on pipes or perhaps use it for storage, your crawlspace likely doesn’t get a lot of attention. Here at Pisgah Insulation & Fireplaces, we want to make sure your crawlspace is getting the attention it deserves! Your crawlspace plays an important role in the environment of the rest of your home. Here are just a few ways that something as easy as crawlspace encapsulation can impact your Asheville, North Carolina property.
- Cleaner Air. Air doesn’t just stay put; it travels through the walls, roof and door of your home, including areas like your crawlspace. Whether yours is dirt or cement, air from your crawlspace is often damper and can have dust, dirt, mildew, mold spores and more. These airborne issues easily make their way up to the main living space. If you have an encapsulated crawlspace, however, your air above is clean.
- Warm Floors & Pipes. If you have a lot of pipes running through your crawlspace, an encapsulated crawlspace acts like a layer of insulation to keep these pipes warm. Additionally, your floors that are on top of your crawlspace will be warmer as well.
- Pest & Mold Resistance. Crawlspaces are favorite hiding spots for common issues like mold and pests, but with an encapsulated crawlspace, you don’t have to worry about either due to our effective barriers.
If you are looking to add comfort to your Asheville property, start from the bottom by properly encapsulating the crawlspace! To learn about more advantages of an encapsulated crawlspace, give us a call today here at Pisgah Insulation & Fireplaces.
