This homeowner in Suffield, CT called us out to their home because they were having some cold floor and humidity concerns. During our Home Energy Evaluation we noticed they had a dirt crawl space. In the winter, crawlspaces let a lot of cold air into your home, and with little to no insulation, your home is not protected from that harsh outdoor air. As you can see in the photo, there was some rim joist insulation, but not enough. Crawlspaces are known to be a very moist area, with lots of humidity issues, especially in the summer.
Time for our treatment! We first lay down our plastic dimple drainage mat across the floor. Next, our Terrablock insulation boards are installed on top of the drainage mat. Finally, we use our 20 mil thick encapsulation liner across the floor and seal it with special tape, fasteners, and spikes as needed. This liner contains anti-microbial ingredients to fight off any potential mold, and allergens! Now, thanks to Dr. Energy Saver by Eco Energy Solutions, this home is more comfortable, happy, and energy efficient!
