Crawl space encapsulation is the process of sealing the inside of the crawl space underneath the home with a protective covering. After the treatment, your crawl space will no longer be a damp, dirty area that has the potential to grow mold. Crawl space encapsulation can have a tremendous impact on your home. In fact, it not only protects your home but it protects you as well. There are many benefits of crawl space encapsulation.
Vented crawl spaces have a huge negative impact on indoor air quality. When there is better air quality in the crawl space, there will be better air quality in your living space.
Once your crawl space is encapsulated, your floors won’t be cold in the winter and your home will not be muggy in the summer.
HVAC System Longevity
A furnace, air handler or duct work in a vented crawl space does not last as long as a system that is in a conditioned crawl space.

Crawl space encapsulation can reduce energy bills by up to 20%.
