CRAWL SPACE INSULATION SERVICES IN MYRTLE BEACH, SC
HAVE A CRAWL SPACE? YOU MAY HAVE BIG PROBLEMS.
ABS Coastal Insulating provides Myrtle Beach, SC with crawl space insulation. As a homeowner, you want to protect your house from long- and short-term damage. Hiring ABS Coastal Insulating for your crawl space insulation project is an important way to do so. Crawl spaces are susceptible to moisture and deterioration problems. Beneath your crawl space lies a humid layer of soil. As moisture rises from the earth and into the crawl space, it can create an environment that is perfect for mold growth. Damp or wet crawl spaces are a haven for pests – something all property owners want to avoid. We will recommend the best solution for your crawl space and we offer free estimates.
The Benefits of Crawl Space Insulation
ABS Coastal Insulating understands the ins and outs of household insulation and we know how to communicate our expertise to our customers. Insulating your crawl space has a variety of benefits, any of which will enhance your enjoyment of your house or increase the energy efficiency in your home. Explore the advantages of crawl space insulation below:
Comfort: An ideal home is one that operates at peak efficiency, where each room’s temperature matches the thermostat. If that’s not the case, don’t immediately replace your HVAC system. An uninsulated crawl space can create drafty or cold areas. Crawl space insulation can help address these issues.
Air quality: Dirt, dust, mold, moisture, and pest droppings all contribute to poor indoor air quality. Crawl space insulation is an excellent way to prevent these negative impacts. If your household includes individuals with seasonal allergies or asthma, insulating and sealing your crawl space could help their symptoms by keeping contaminants out of the home’s living space.
Energy efficiency: When a crawl space isn’t insulated, moisture can build up and leak into the home through penetration points in the main floor. This causes the HVAC to work harder to compensate for the indoor climate change, which increases energy bills. Crawl space insulation and encapsulation helps regulate the crawl space’s atmosphere.
HVAC system health: One of the additional downsides of forcing your HVAC system to work overtime to keep your house cool during the summer and warm in the winter is the strain it places on the AC or furnace. By insulating your crawl space, you can preserve the health of the unit.
How To Achieve Efficient Crawl Space Insulation
ABS Coastal Insulating has a wealth of techniques available to insulate a project. Because no two buildings are the same we approach each job with an individual solution. The principles of crawl space insulation are universal. Some of the following techniques may be used to properly insulate your crawl space:
Install a drainage system
Many times excess moisture resides in a crawl space. One way to combat this problem is by installing a drainage system to facilitate the removal of water from the crawl space.
Insulate the crawl space walls
If your crawl space walls are the culprit, insulating them with highly rated materials may be recommended to address the issue. We offer a variety of solutions.
Insulate the crawl space ceiling
If you choose to encapsulate your crawl space, spray foam insulation will be applied to the ceiling of the crawl space. This will help prevent damp air from infiltrating your home’s living space.
Install a vapor/moisture barrier
Moisture barriers help prevent moisture accumulation.
