Symptoms of a Crawl Space Insulation Problem
- Mold or moisture damage in the crawl space or living area
- Moldy, musty odors in the living area
- Condensation ("sweating") on air conditioning ductwork or equipment
- Condensation on insulation, water pipes or truss plates in the crawl space
- Buckled hardwood floors
- High humidity in the living area
- Heightened allergies or asthma symptoms
- Insect infestations
Excess moisture, introduced by way of unsealed, vented crawlspaces, contributes to any number of issues that shorten the life of your home. Some of the most pressing of these issues include wooden foundations and frames rotting, mold growth in the crawl space and throughout the home, and increased pest activity, including infestation and colonization.
Moisture in crawlspaces migrates to the upper levels of the home through a “stack effect.” In essence, whatever air is below the house moves inside the house, which carries odors and contributes to poor indoor air quality and uncomfortably high humidity levels. As warm air rises and escapes through the upper levels of the home, new air finds its way into the home to replace what’s been lost. Intake air comes in at the lower levels – through unsealed crawlspaces.
