Crawl Space Air Sealing Near Portland, Salem, Eugene, and Roseburg
A cold winter night in the Northwest can be difficult enough on your HVAC system without adding to the problem by allowing cold air from your crawl space to creep into your living area. Because more than 40% of the air you breathe on the first floor comes from your crawl space, you want it to be clean, pure, and comfortable. You do not want it to be frigid.
Likewise, you don’t want the crawl space air creeping into your home on a hot summer day to be significantly warmer than your indoor thermostat setting. This also tends to be a big problem with crawl spaces that have not had proper air sealing techniques applied by Josh Lowe’s Dr. Energy Saver.
By air sealing your crawl space, just like you would air seal your attic or your ductwork, you can make your home more energy-efficient and reduce your energy bills in the process. For homeowners in the Western Oregon and Southwest Washington areas, the annual savings can be substantial.
At Josh Lowe’s Dr. Energy Saver, our trained technicians will seal the gaps in your crawl space and allow you to create a properly insulated sub-ground area that will help to keep your home comfortable and your energy bills low on a year-round basis.
Get Comfortable with Crawl Space Air Sealing
In the best of circumstances, the HVAC system inside your home can only raise or lower the outdoor temperature by 20 to 25 degrees. However, that figure diminishes substantially when you start letting additional hot or cold air from the crawl space into your conditioned living area. These types of major air leaks put significant stress on your AC or heater.
When you have air leaks in your crawl space, you will face a major challenge when it comes to creating an ideal indoor temperature without overworking your HVAC system. Air leaks from the crawl space also tend to make some rooms hotter or colder than the rest of the house. This inefficient heating leads to increased utility bills.
To locate potential air leaks and determine their severity, we can do an airflow test that will show how much air is being lost. Once we determine where the problem areas are, we can begin air sealing techniques such as encapsulation to create an airtight seal between your crawl space and your living area.
