How does Radiant Barrier or Reflective Insulation help in my Crawl Space?
Are your feet cold? Are the floors in your house always cold? Heat naturally moves to cold trying to maintain equilibrium. If your crawlspace is not properly insulated, heat will escape and move to the cold ground below. With proper insulation, these heat losses can be minimized and your home’s efficiency can be greatly improved, lowering your energy bills and keeping your feet warmer.
Our Super R Radiant Barrier products in their solid forms and Tempshield Reflective Bubble insulation products provide a great solution to combat this problem. The highly reflective surfaces of these products reflect up to 97% of the radiant heat that is trying to escape your home. This heat is reflected back into the living space to provide a higher level of comfort and lower your energy requirements.
These products also act as a vapor and moisture retarder. With proper installation, the insulation products minimize vapor and moisture from the ground getting into your living spaces. Moisture will evaporate out of the ground and create a damp, humid environment within the crawl space. This can lead to many problems with potential mold and mildew growth, rotting of structural members, promote insect and rodent infestation, and affect the comfort inside your home.
