You all know of the simple things you can do to lower our Maryland utility bill: turn off lights when you leave a room, unplug unused appliances, set your thermostat a little cooler in the winter and warmer in the summer. But do you also know that these small tweaks won't reduce your energy bill nearly as much as fixing your dirt, vented or unconditioned concrete crawl space under your Maryland home?
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.
The crawl space air is cold in winter and hot summer. It is in your building envelope and gets upstairs in one of two ways - the stack effect (the movement of air into and out of buildings), or the HVAC system through your ducts. If your crawl space is vented, those vents let hot, wet, or cold air in, making your floors cold upstairs in winter and hot in summer. A home with a dirt crawl space costs more to heat and cool. An independent study revealed that homeowners who properly fix their vented dirt crawl space can save 15% - 20% on their heating and air conditioning costs! Fixing your crawl space is one home repair you can't afford not to make.
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, a ultimate solution to vented dirt crawl spaces. The CleanSpace system

Comment: I have a sump pump in my crawl space but it's not working. Water is inside my crawl space. My crawl space is outside and not really covered. I never really checked it until I was out back yesterday and noticed water inside my crawl space. I need the water drained and the sump pump unclogged or replaced.

Comment: I bought a new home and immediately began seeing silver fish type bugs. After having a pest inspection, it was identified that my crawl space is the source of the infestation. I would like someone to come out and take a look so that I can determine what can be done to improve functioning in the crawlspace (moisture, ventilation, etc.)

Comment: We have a fairly narrow crawlspace (guess 3 or 4 feet high). Bat insulation between joists is dropping down in spots, but insulation and air in space is dry. We may be moving in a few years so objective is to improve insulation, but also, and maybe more importantly, is to improve appearance for a home inspection. So....looking for a minimal solution to repair replace bat insulation.
