Crawlspace sealing is one of the most significant air quality improvements that can be made in your home. This is because air typically enters and exits homes using a phenomenon referred to as the “chimney effect” or the “stack effect,” which is based on the principle that hot air rises. As this hot air rises from the crawlspace to the rest of a home, it does so by going through leaks in the floor and other small crevices, bringing allergens, dirt, and other contaminants along with it.
At AppleBlossom Energy, our crawlspace sealing services in Charlotte, North Carolina will ensure that a minimal amount of warm, unfiltered air is permitted to enter the living areas of your home. We employ proper air sealing techniques coupled with a vapor barrier that prevents mold, moisture, and radon from entering your home. As a result, you will experience warmer floors, lower energy bills, and healthier indoor air quality throughout the year.
Our crawlspace sealing services also affect the durability of your home’s structure. Moisture creates an ideal environment for insects and pests that can destroy the wood framing of your home. Sealed vapor barriers keep moisture out and reduce the chance for these insects and pests to accumulate.
