Crawl Space Facts
- According to a study by Advanced Energy, homeowners can expect to reduce their energy bills by 15-18% by sealing off their crawl space. They also determined that homes with vented crawlspaces were 19 times more likely to experience relative humidity levels in excess of 70% than homes with encapsulated crawl spaces.
- As much as 50% of the air in a home’s living space originates from the crawl space.
- Most pests are attracted to moist environments. As a result, moisture control is an important part of any fully integrated pest management system.
