Best practices once called for crawl spaces to be left open and allowed to “breathe,” venting air outside. The idea was by allowing them to self-regulate they would be able to maintain a consistent equilibrium and avoid potential issues. However, a recent study provided evidence that vented crawl spaces do not regulate as well as we once believed and create a variety of potential hazards. Crawl spaces are actually much more susceptible to high levels of RH, moisture buildup due to the environment reaching its dew point, and becoming a host to more major mold issues.
One solution to these issues is the newer concept of encapsulated crawl spaces. By applying a thick layer of plastic to the earth, shifting insulation from under the floor, in the floor joists to the walls, and ducting a vent into the now sealed crawlspace, it creates a controlled environment. This makes the crawlspace similar to the rooms in your home, increasing your heating and air efficiencies, nearly eliminating humidity issues, and creates a barrier that deters pests. These new systems are rapidly gaining in popularity due to the wide array of advantages and savings.
