Crawl Space Insulation in Wisconsin

Are you getting ready to insulate or re-insulate your home? Don’t ignore the lowest levels, like the crawl space, if you have one. If your home has a crawl space that isn’t insulated, it’s not as energy-efficient as it could be, and as a result, you could be losing a lot of money!

If you live in southern or central Wisconsin and need crawl space insulation, the experts at Alpine Insulation have you covered. We have a lot of experiencing installing insulation and can recommend the right solution for you.

Insulating Crawl Spaces for Madison & Appleton, WI Homes

If your home has a crawl space, it needs to be insulated, properly weatherized and sealed. Otherwise, you’ll end up dealing with issues like moisture problems and soil vapor intrusion (which can decrease indoor air quality). Crawl spaces are a big source of energy loss in homes – a lot of air leaks in through your crawl space. Crawl space insulation and sealing are optimal because the insulation isn’t as effective if there are air leaks. A crawl space that is insulated but not sealed won’t do a lot to maximize your home’s energy efficiency!

Ventilated vs. Unventilated Crawl Spaces

Is your crawl space ventilated or unventilated? You should find out before insulating – and if you aren’t sure, our insulation contractors will be able to tell you. Ventilated crawl spaces should be insulated under the subflooring and between the floor joists. When it comes to insulating crawl spaces that are unventilated, wall insulation is important. For these types of crawl spaces, you don’t need to worry about sealing.

For such a small area, a crawl space can have a huge impact on your home’s energy efficiency if not properly insulated. No matter what type of crawl space you have and what material you use, you’ll notice the difference crawl space insulation can make.

The Benefits of Insulating Your Milwaukee Home’s Crawl Space

In Wisconsin, more insulation is almost always better, and that goes for the crawl space, as well. Whether your home is brand-new and needs a full insulation installation or a few decades old and needs a bit of an upgrade, sealing and insulating your crawl space can have huge benefits for your home and your family, such as:

  • Improving temperature control: In the winter, the cold, moist air will not reach the underside of the floor and leech heat from the interior. In the summer, unconditioned air from the crawl space will not be able to temper your cool interior air, leaving your home more comfortable.
  • Improving air quality: Crawl spaces tend to be dirty, dusty spaces with mold, mildew and pest problems. If the crawl space is not properly sealed and insulated, some of the air from the crawl space may find its way into the interior of your home, reducing your air quality and contributing to health issues like asthma, allergies or bronchitis.
  • Reducing mold and mildew: Proper insulation and vapor barriers can virtually eliminate mold in the crawl space, which not only improves your air quality but can also help to prevent wood rot and pest infestations.
  • Reducing drafts: Properly air sealing your crawl space can reduce cool drafts in the winter, and it can keep hot air from rising into your home in the summer.
  • Eliminating cold floors: When your crawl space is properly insulated, you won’t need to dread your cold floors in the winter or resort to wearing shoes or heavy socks all the time.
  • Improving comfort: Between the warm floors, more even temperatures and better air quality, an insulated crawl space can significantly improve your comfort in the winter and year-round.
  • Lowering energy costs: Without the energy losses of an uninsulated crawl space, your heating and cooling costs will be lower.
