Your vented crawl space could be to blame for your high utility bills
Unfortunately, typical fiberglass insulation installed in your crawl space ceiling does not prevent frozen pipes, cold floors, or expensive heating bills. An additional concern is having ductwork in vented crawl spaces, as outside air can come in and cool your ducts in the winter, while warming them in the summer. This will force your heating and cooling system to work much harder trying to regulate the temperature of your home, which can have a 25-40% effect on your home’s efficiency.
How we keep cold air out of crawl spaces
Making temporary repairs doesn't work. Vesta Foundation Solutions can permanently solve your cold weather crawl space problems. When we winterize your crawl space, we don’t simply focus on your pipes and vents. We winterize your entire crawl space foundation by sealing gaps and insulating your crawl space floors and walls.
Here’s how our process works:
- Air seal and insulate the rim joist. The rim joist that rests on your crawl space foundation can be an outlet for significant heat loss. We seal gaps around the perimeter of your foundation to prevent frigid air from leaking into your crawl space. We then insulate the rim joist with foam insulation, thus reducing heat loss.
- Insulate crawl space walls with rigid foam. Star Guard rigid foam insulation does what fiberglass cannot. It prevents air leaks, is moisture-proof, and never loses R-value (how well a barrier prevents heat flow). We utilize Star Guard insulation due to its proven ability to insulate.
- Seal and insulate the crawl space floor. Foam insulation is our recommendation to those living in colder climates for crawl space floors. We cover this specialized, flexible insulation with Vesta moisture barrier, a strong poly barrier that completes the sealing process. Once this is completed, your crawl space is now inaccessible to outside conditions.
