How Can I Make My Home Energy-Efficient?
Here at Adams Foundation Repair, we believe in giving you the best services for the best prices. We know that you care about keeping energy costs down in your home, which can be hard if you’re facing old, outdated systems. When you want to save on your energy bill, consider crawl space or basement encapsulation for your home.
In Missouri’s long, hot summers, you want to stay cool while keeping your home energy efficient. A crawl space or basement encapsulation can help by insulating the inside of your space to avoid any outside air traveling to your upper floors. Before an encapsulation, you may not realize that all the insulation, window or door replacements, or other upgrades are doing very little until you insulate the lowest floor. Experts recommend this process for every home with a crawl space because it ends up saving you around 20% on your energy bill, as well as helping the environment. That’s a big difference for your wallet. Without an encapsulation, your home could become a victim to the stack effect. This is where heated air rises, building negative pressure in the lower parts of your home. Air is then sucked into your home through your basement or crawl space. While this is happening, your heating and cooling systems are working overtime to keep your home at the right temperature.
Trust the Experts
You can avoid this by choosing foundation and basement professionals who know how to properly seal your basement, crawlspace, or foundation. Cracks, bowing walls, shifting concrete, or drafty crawlspaces can all wreak havoc on your home’s energy efficiency.
