Your home’s foundation can be an area of massive air leakage since it is right off the ground, so the right crawl space insulation is needed to reduce this air leakage. Currently, your crawl space may not have any insulation, or it may be stuffed with fiberglass that won’t help reduce leaking air.
Symptoms of a Poorly Insulated Crawl Space
If your crawl space is without insulation, or with poor insulation, you may be be noticing cold floors and suffering from cold feet. You may also be noticing cold ductwork and freezing pipes, as most pipes and ductwork run through the foundation. This not only impacts your comfort and is inconvenient when pipes are frozen, but also impacts the bottom line on your energy bills as your HVAC system is working harder and more often than it should.
Insulating Your Crawl Space
Icynene spray foam is the perfect solution for insulating your crawl space as the foam will air seal your foundation area, reducing the air leakage to keep your feet, pipes, and ductwork warmer in the cold months, and energy bills more affordable.
If ductwork and mechanical is present in the crawl space we recommend laying plastic on the ground and spraying the crawl space walls and rim joist. This will seal off your foundation and allow your crawl space to be a similar temperature of your home. The radiant heat from your mechanical can also move up freely through your floors for added comfort. In the case where no mechanical or ductwork is present, we would spray the underside of the floor to air seal the crawl space completely from your livable space.
