How Sealing and Insulating Your Crawlspace Can Save You Money
Homes in St. Louis built above crawlspaces typically experience colder rooms and floors during the winter and overly humid or hot rooms during the summer. By having our experts encapsulate and insulate your crawlspace you can not only keep your home comfortable, but you can also save money on your energy bills. Unsealed crawlspaces are typically left open to the outside elements and are not properly air-sealed. This means that while your air conditioning unit or furnace are running to keep your home comfortable, you are losing that cold or warm air to your crawlspace. It’s easy to save money on your energy bills with the help of our expert crawl space insulation and encapsulation team.
