Common Questions About Crawl Spaces
Does a crawl space add value?
Depends on the buyer
How much does crawl space insulation save?
Although there is potential for savings if HVAC equip and water heater are in the crawlspace the value comes from comfort, health of the home and it’s occupants, protecting water pipes, and control of mold and other moisture related issues in a vented crawlspace.
Does encapsulating a crawl space save energy?
Again, if HVAC equip and/or water heater is located in crawlspace it saves the most.
Is it good to have a crawl space?
No such thing as a good vented crawlspace. Encapsulation is always the better option.

The Truth About Crawl Spaces!
Many homes across Georgia and the country for that matter have crawl spaces. The majority of them are vented or will be vented when built. Sadly, local residential building codes still allow for them to be vented.
Let’s be clear. There is no such thing as a “good” vented crawl space. If a home could have cancer it would derive from a vented crawl space.
The theory for a vented crawl space is to exhaust humidity from the crawl space through venting. This actually makes the situation worse especially in the summertime. When the hot humid air from outside enters the cooler humid crawl space the hot air cools. As it cools the humidity levels rise approximately 2.2% per degree that it cools.
In addition, occupants in the home breathe approximately 50% of the crawl space air through stack effect which may affect occupants with allergies or are sensitive to mold spores etc. Lastly, a vented crawl space is a large part of energy loss in a home.
Mechanicals such as HVAC equipment and hot water heaters are commonly located in the crawl space. Duct leakage, running more, and rust/deterioration are common symptoms in this area.
