Do you have cold and uncomfortable floors?
We have a solution for you!
With the extreme weather conditions these last couple of days, the last thing you need to worry about is a cold, uncomfortable floor!
When a home has a crawlspace foundation, the floors above them replicate the space's temperature below. Even with socks on and rugs down, the cold feeling is still coming through. For many years homeowners have been told to insulate their floor joist (the crawl space ceiling) and that this will help protect the floor from the piercing cold that is often underneath it. The downfall to just insulating floor joist alone is that it is not a long-term solution.
Our team here at Vesta, wants to help you avoid costly problems with your crawlspace. The crawlspace impacts all other systems in your home, so addressing any issues right away is critical to keep your home and feet warm!
As cold air begins to rise from the crawl space, the airflow is distributed through the house, called the stack effect.
The stack effect can end with your home becoming less comfortable to live in.
As a crawl space might be affecting your home, your heating system has to work 2x harder to help warm the home. This is a costly and burdening cycle!
Having the heating system supplement for the coldness of the floor in your home will raise the cost of your utility bills. Then when summer hits, the humidity of the air will then force your family's cooling system to work harder to keep your home cool.
When a homeowner insulates their basement or crawlspace can help keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.
