Dirt Crawl Spaces Cost You Money
A vented dirt crawl space is a big energy waster. The exterior air continuously streaming into your house raises the heat and ac load. Additionally, the dampness has to be squeezed out of the air by your air conditioning system, which places a whopping tax on it - and you.
It costs you serious money with power bills, not forgetting the price of wood replacement, mold clean-up, and also property-value diminishment.
Mold also grows in a damp setting.
An independent study exposed that homeowners who correctly repair their vented dirt crawl space are able to save 10% to 20% on their HVAC costs! When the conditions are perfect (which means all completely wrong before the set up), it can save you more than this. WhiteCap® is a crawl space vapor barrier which is one of those things that you're going to pay for regardless of whether you get it or not.
