Vented or open crawl spaces are very common in the Atlanta area because they are inexpensive to build and functional in terms of providing a foundation for flooring as well as a convenient space to install plumbing, electrical and duct work for the HVAC systems. Typically fiberglass batt insulation is installed in the ceiling of the crawl space when the home is new. Overtime, gravity, pest and excessive humidity causes the insulation to pull away and fall to the floor. A vented crawl space allows outside air in through the vents into the crawl space where it is sucked into your home via your heating and cooling system or other holes and/or cracks left behind by the builder. This “stack effect”, pulls the contaminates (dust, moisture, odors, mold, etc…) from the crawl space and distributes it throughout your entire house.

At Arbor Insulation Solutions, we agree with the building science experts, create a well-sealed, unventilated crawlspace or “closed crawl space” by sealing and insulating the foundation walls and crawl space floors rather than insulating the sub-floor with ineffective fiberglass batts. This is referred to as an encapsulated crawl space. By encapsulating your crawl space it now becomes a clean and healthy part of your house or building envelope.
Your new encapsulated crawl space offers the following benefits:
