Crawl Space and Basement Insulation for Your Knightdale Home

Are Energy Costs in Your Knightdale Home Too High?

If your home was built prior to the year 2000, there’s a very good chance it is in need of an insulation upgrade. Energy efficiency and insulation technology have made a lot of progress in the last 15 years, but building codes haven’t kept up.

Building insulation codes set a minimum acceptable standard for your home, and the standard is not high, which leaves you with high energy bills as you try to keep your home comfortable. Not only are you paying for the energy your home is losing, your HVAC unit is working overtime to compensate – which can significantly reduce it’s lifespan.

Knightdale's Retrofitting Specialists

It’s relatively easy to design an energy efficient home when you start with new construction, but bringing an older, existing home up to modern standards takes true expertise.

This is what we specialize in here at Crawl Space & Basement Technologies. We work only on existing homes, so we have the expertise necessary to tackle the diverse and often complex challenges of retrofitting an older home for maximum energy efficiency.

Energy Loss and Your Knightdale Home

The two main culprits of energy loss are typically your attic and your crawl space. Unfortunately, most older homes were built without attic insulation which can lead to incredibly hot attic temperatures (165 degrees or more!). This can damage belongings stored in the attic and cause dramatic energy loss in your home, up to 40 percent!

When it's hot outside, and there's not insulation, this causes the warm air outside of your air-conditioned house to push cooler indoor air down from the ceiling and out of cracks in your basement or crawl space--something known as the “Stack Effect”.

Uninsulated crawl spaces contribute to the large quantities of lost energy, as well as to poor air quality and leaving your home primed for moisture and mold issues. (Read more about encapsulation and what exactly happens in a poorly insulated crawlspace.)

Crawl Space Insulation Options to Save on Energy Costs

Crawl Space Insulation replacement can be relatively simple process. Some homes only need an R-19 replacement, while others require a complete crawl space encapsulation and sealing. A complete sealing uses closed-cell spray foam or foam board on the walls of your crawl space. Our experts will do a full investigation and evaluation of your crawl space and work with you to determine the solution that will best meet your needs and budget.

Spray Foam Insulation for Attics and Crawl Spaces

Spray foam is one of the most universal, budget-friendly options to improve your home’s energy efficiency.

In a nutshell, our trained specialists will spray a foam mixture onto the inside of your home’s walls, the underside of your roof, and throughout the basement or crawl space. The foam then expands to seal cracks and voids, stopping energy leakage and creating an additional barrier to heat/air transfer.

Why is Spray Foam Better than Other Types of Insulation?

  • A high R-Value Foam provides exceptional thermal performance by minimizing hot and cold spots.
  • Acts as padding and reduces weak points. Unlike fiberglass insulation, foam provides additional structural integrity to your home.
  • Additional moisture prevention. As a secondary vapor barrier, the foam prevents moisture from accessing the wall cavity.

You can’t beat the benefits of Spray Foam Insulation! It seals your home from air and moisture, reduces your utility bills, strengthens your home and protects your family’s health from dangerous mold, pollutants, and allergens.
