A drafty, leaky, and humid crawl space can present some major issues when it comes to the comfort and health of your home. Standard Insulating Company offers crawl space solutions to keep the crawl space beneath your home dry and temperatures consistent, using strategically and expertly installed insulation.

Why Insulate a Crawl Space?

Crawl space insulation in your home is more important than you may think. Fifteen percent or more of a home’s total heat loss can be attributed to an improperly insulated or uninsulated crawl space— the space between the ground or foundation and the floorboards.

The Stack Effect

As heat and air move through your home they will look for ways to escape to the outdoors. This can happen through leaks, air gaps, and areas that are not insulated—most often in the attic. As that heat and air escape from the top of the home, it is replaced by air that’s sucked in through the bottom of the home, as illustrated in a building science principle called the “stack effect”. If your crawl space is not properly sealed and insulated, unconditioned, unfiltered air will pass through the crawl space and enter your living space.  

Ensuring your home has the right insulation installed from the foundation up will keep your floors and the living space above warmer while regulating temperatures below as well. 

Our decades of experience can get you the customized results you deserve. 

How Is Crawl Space Insulation Installed?

Determining the best way to insulate a crawl space depends on whether it is ventilated or unventilated. Rolls of batt insulation are generally ideal for the small space below your structure and the foundation. Batting is secured in between the floor joists, forming a barrier of protection from heat, cold, and even sound.
