Crawl Space Encapsulation

There are many home comfort and energy efficiency issues that can be traced back to leaky and underinsulated crawl spaces, which is why Energy Savers specializes in crawl space encapsulation for homes in the Syracuse area. Crawl space encapsulation creates a healthier, more energy efficient living space for you and your family. With our expert solutions, we can properly seal your crawl space and protect your home.

Benefits of Crawl Space Encapsulation

Homes can be leaky and riddled with air gaps and cracks that allow outside air to move in and out of your living space. Holes and poor insulation in other parts of the home often allow air to leak out, which creates a negative pressure inside. That negative pressure pulls air from the nearest source to replace the escaping air, which is usually the crawl space or basement. By air sealing and insulating your crawl space through crawl space encapsulation, you can interrupt this process and experience a number of benefits:

Lower Energy Bills: By sealing your crawl space, you reduce the amount of air that leaks in from the outside, preventing cold drafts in the winter, reducing heat loss, and saving you money.

Increased Comfort: No more cold floors above your crawl space! With crawl space encapsulation, your floors will be warmer and more comfortable.

Improved Indoor Air Quality: An encapsulated crawl space can reduce or eliminate moisture-related mold issues and musty smells in your home by preventing the accumulation of water in the crawl space. 

How to Encapsulate Your Crawl Space

There are several steps involved in properly encapsulating your crawl space. Our trained installers can recommend the right methods and types of encapsulation for your crawl space. Here’s an overview of the process:

  1. Assess your crawl space
  2. Apply a vapor barrier
  3. Air seal
  4. Install insulation

Crawl Space Insulation: Spray Foam

As for the types of insulation that provide the maximum benefit in crawl spaces, Energy Savers frequently recommends the use of spray foam insulation for its high R-value and air sealing ability. Spray foam insulation is applied by spraying it onto walls, basements, crawl spaces, and even attics. Its ability to fill cavities effectively provides a dual function as insulation and air sealant. Additionally, spray foam insulation has a high R-value, which is a measure of its effectiveness.
