Crawlspace insulation and Ventilation
Crawl space insulation is important!
A number of comfort and energy problems are caused by inadequate or incorrect crawl space insulation.
Any crawl space can be wet and damp, so the insulation must hold up in those conditions. We recommend installing a vapor barrier along with proper insulation to prevent mold and moisture problems and to keep your home comfortable year-round.
At Quality Eco Technologies, we have several different crawl space insulation options depending on the specific job:
TriGuard Multi Layer Insulation
Reflective Insulation greatly increases comfort in residential and commercial applications by reducing radiant heat gain. The barriers consist of a highly reflective material that reflects radiant heat rather than absorbing it. TriGuard is effective used alone or in conjunction with fiberglass batts for
optimal thermal performance.
TriGuard MLI blocks all three modes of heat loss/gain! Provides total thermal protection. Radiant energy causes up to 93% of heat transfer. Only one insulation blocks radiant energy plus heat conduction and convection: TriGuard Reflective Insulation.
For crawl space exterior walls, we will use either our TriGuard MLI or TriGuard Foam Board insulation.
You may be in need of crawl space ventilation… rest assured, we have you covered!
TriGuard Crawl Space Ventilation
Fan powered crawl space ventilation quickly reduces moisture helping to protect both your home and your family.
Our crawl space fans ventilate excess moisture, mildew and of course help to prevent wood rot. Perhaps the biggest benefit is that they increase air circulation to fight condensation.
The fans constant operation helps vent radon, treated wood off-gassing, and odors that might otherwise migrate into living areas.
