This homeowner in Benedict, MD had a crawl space that was causing comfort issues in her home. In the summer the home seemed impossible to keep cool, and in the winter the first floor didn't feel much warmer than outside. Following a call to Complete Home Solutions, our Home Comfort Specialist conducted a full inspection of the home, and recommended a full crawl space encapsulation to fix the comfort issues in the home. On the day of the install our Home Comfort Technicians began by removing all of the old vapor barrier from the crawl space and laying in our CleanSpace vapor barrier, which keeps moisture and pest from entering the crawl space from the ground up. The next step was sealing all of the external walls with spray foam, this process closes all the vents that allow air to move into the crawl ad well as insulating the area. Our final step is installing a dehumidifier to regulate the humidity in the crawl to a consistent 50-55%.
The homeowner noticed an immediate difference in the homes temperature and is now comfortable regardless of the temperature outside.
