Whether you live in Miami, Orlando, Jacksonville, Tallahassee or Tampa, every Florida household must protect itself against the intense heat from its constant sunshine. There are a number of home renovations you can do to help you stay cool and reduce your cooling expenses in the "Sunshine State", but the dirt, vented crawl space underneath your house is one of the areas many people tend to neglect. However, fixing your crawl space is one home repair you can't afford not to make.
The house is one building. It operates as a system. You can't have one part of the building that is sick, and another part that is healthy. You can't rationalize that you never go in the crawl space so you aren't affected by it. Why? Simple. Air mixing. When you have a vented crawl space, those vents let hot and wet air in, making your floors hot upstairs. And the natural airflow in a house is from bottom to top. This sucks the moist air and everything in it up into the living areas of the home. The hot air gets upstairs in one of two ways - the stack effect, or the HVAC system through your ducts, making it more expensive to cool your entire house.
To eliminate the dirt crawl space from having any negative effects on the rest of the house, Basement Systems, the world leader in dry basement and crawl space technology, developed the CleanSpace System, an ultimate solution to vented dirt crawl spaces. The CleanSpace system completely isolates your home from the earth, dramatically reducing the humidity level in the air and in some cases, eliminating mold growth, rot, and critters from your crawl space, making the entire house healthier. And once you encapsulate your crawl space with our patented vapor barrier system, you will even gain valuable storage space in your home.
