Do you feel like you’re paying more to heat your home than ever before? It’s not your imagination—home heating costs are rising at unprecedented rates. According to the National Energy Assistance Directors Association, gas bills in the U.S. could continue to rise up to 30% this winter, which is no small shift.
With this unavoidable increase in costs, homeowners are looking for alternative methods to increase the efficiency of their houses and save money by using less when it comes to costly resources like gas.
The good news is, you have options that you can enjoy as soon as this winter from the expert team at WMGB Home Improvement. We’re here to help with solutions for your home in Wyoming, Grand Rapids, Holland, Grand Haven, or Kalamazoo, MI.
What Is Crawl Space Encapsulation?
Do you know what your crawl space looks like right now? In our experience, Grand Rapids homeowners rarely perform crawl space inspections, because the importance of this part of your home is often underestimated. This neglect can result in crawl spaces becoming home to moisture and pests. Crawl space encapsulation is the process of sealing your crawl space against these intrusions.
At WMGB, our expert installers start the process of crawl space encapsulation with an inspection to ensure that no larger issues need to be addressed prior to completing the crawl space service. If all looks good to go, our installers will apply a vapor barrier to keep moisture out, perform air sealing to prevent outdoor air infiltration, and then install crawl space insulation to keep outdoor temperatures out.
When all is said and done, your crawl space will be clean and stay clean for years into the future! This WMGB service offers a number of benefits that will do good for your whole home.
What Are the Benefits of Crawl Space Encapsulation?
Lower Energy Bills
Did you know that crawl space encapsulation can lower your energy costs by up to 15%? We’ve seen the difference this service can make for Wyoming, MI properties, and the real savings homeowners can enjoy as a result.
No More Cold Floors Over Your Crawl Space
Having cold floors in the rooms above your crawl space is a major clue that you’d benefit from making crawl space improvements like encapsulation. You’d also be likely to see lower energy bills by remedying this problem.
Improved Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)
By encapsulating your crawl space, you’re able to seal off a major potential source of dirty air in Michigan homes. Crawl spaces can be sources for mold, intrusion from allergens and pollutants via outdoor air infiltration, and more, meaning that you’ll immediately enjoy better air quality in your home once the service is complete.
Boost Your Property Value
Adding air sealing and encapsulation to your crawl space is a smart move for overall home efficiency, and prospective buyers will know the value of your investment. Like many efficiency-boosting services, crawl space encapsulation will increase the value of your home should you decide to move.
