If your home has a crawl space that isn’t insulated, it isn’t as energy efficient as it could be, potentially costing you money on your utility bill. Call IBP Tulsa for crawl space insulation — we’ll do an on-site inspection of your crawl space and discuss the right insulation option for your home.
There are many benefits to adding crawl space insulation to your home. By adding insulation, you maximize your home’s energy efficiency by removing a point where air can leak out of the structure. Without insulation in the crawl space, hot and cold treated air is easily lost through the floor. Insulating the crawl space will also help improve your indoor air quality and help maximize your comfort because it reduces strain on your heating and cooling systems, reducing wear and tear and protecting your system from damage and costly repairs.
In most cases, homeowners recoup the cost of insulating the crawl space within just a few seasons. This makes it a cost-effective investment in comfort that generates positive returns year after year. In fact, most homeowners find that they can operate their HVAC systems far less frequently after crawl space insulation is installed. Most also discover that their annual HVAC service appointments uncover fewer problems and don’t require as many repairs. That money adds up quickly and can be used for purposes other than home maintenance and repair.
Adding crawl space insulation can also improve indoor air quality. The insulation provides an effective barrier against outside air pollution, dirt, pests, pollen and other airborne allergens. Crawl space insulation is a permanent shield that ensures these pollutants don’t enter the crawl space and circulate through the home’s air supply. This will improve your comfort and help you breathe easier day and night. Crawl space insulation can be particularly beneficial for homeowners with breathing conditions such as COPD, allergies, asthma, etc.
Most crawl space insulation work is straightforward, which means that most homes require less than a few hours to complete the task. This makes it a fast, efficient and effective method for creating long-lasting comfort.

Crawl spaces that aren’t properly insulated are prone to water damage from moisture from the ground under your house. This can cause inconvenient (and potentially costly) problems.
If your crawl space is ventilated, it can be hard to keep warm in the winter and dehumidify in the summer, the latter of which can result in higher levels of moisture. The professionals at IBP Tulsa can insulate the subfloor and between the floor joists.
For unventilated crawl spaces, sealing between the house and crawl space isn’t as important. In our opinion, it’s best to insulate the walls instead if you have to make a choice.

A few factors determine how much insulation you need to install, including:
Insulation is available at home improvement and hardware stores, but we recommend contacting a local insulation company! This helps ensure the insulation is installed correctly and safely so that ultimately it does what it is meant to do—help increase your home’s energy efficiency and comfort.
It’s difficult to determine exactly how much insulation can save based on a universal scale, but homeowners can save a lot of money each year by installing insulation! Re-insulating is a good way to help maximize your home’s energy efficiency. Specifics about how much energy you can save with insulation depend on where you live, the size of your house and more.
Moisture is a major issue in basements and can be an even bigger problem in crawlspaces. First, think of how often you check on your crawl space. Not very often, right? Basements are more frequently visited, so if a leaky foundation or mold issue occurs from excess moisture, you may be more likely to notice it.
The same isn’t always true of a crawl space. When an uninsulated crawl space has elevated humidity levels, the greater the likelihood of mold growth. Moisture and mold in the crawl space have the potential to rot structural elements, seep into the house and ruin your indoor air quality.
