Cleaning and maintaining your indoor living spaces will keep your home safe and healthy. There comes a time when disasters compromise your breathable air and generate problems that could affect your health and home.
Insulating your water pipes helps reduce heat loss and can raise the water temperature by 2 to 4 degrees, and it also helps prevent freezing in cold temperatures. Insulation varies in R-value, but there are minimum recommendations that are designed to ensure you’ll see energy savings from your pipe insulation.
Airflow problems stem from lack of proper insulation. When ducts are poorly insulated, air leaks out, leading to increased energy output and poor air flow into the home. Ultimately, you end up spending a lot more money on energy bills. When ducts exist in unconditioned areas the same scenario occurs. Insulating these spaces, along with improving poorly insulated ducts, is generally a cost-effective way to improve air flow and energy use.
Leaky duct systems occur when the connections and joints are loose. Condensation around the air return grilles may occur if a duct is leaking cold air in the attic near the boot that connects to the grille. As A/C blows cool air through the ducts, leaks cause a decrease in air flow pressure and valuable conditioned air escapes, resulting in a hotter room. In addition, the A/C has to work harder and longer to cool your home.
Structural problems, such as sagging beams, settling columns, or fatigued floor joists, are all too common in a crawlspace. Settling columns in a crawl space are most commonly caused by weak supporting soils underneath that cannot stand up under the weight and pressure being transferred to them through the home. Over time, these weak soils will begin to shift and settle due to changes in density and moisture content. As this occurs, the columns and beams will begin to move out of position.
Sagging beams and floor joists are commonly caused by the improper spacing of the existing pier columns. By placing pier columns too far apart, beams can become overloaded, forcing them to bend and sag. This leads to sagging floors above, cracks in the walls, and a variety of other foundation issues..
Helps Stop Cracking, Settling of Walls & Ceilings, Freezing & Busting of Water Pipes, Eliminates Musty Smells, Possible Air Borne Respiratory Illness, Wood Decay Fungus, Molds & Wood Rot from Excessive Moisture, Help with Lowering Energy Cost & Extend the Structural Integrity of Your Home
The buildup of moisture in a crawl space can cause damage to the wood in your home’s substructure through condensation. Vapor barriers are applied directly to the soil to prevent moisture and ground water from condensing on wood, which can result in wood rot and other moisture-related issues.
