While North Carolina is located in a warm temperate zone, its diverse regions can experience a great variety of weather conditions. From the Appalachian Mountains, to the Foothills, to the Atlantic Ocean, its very diverse climate poses a big challenge for howowners in the "Tar Heel State" to reduce home energy use and lower their energy bills in all climates!
When it comes to energy saving, many people focus more on repairing what's above the ground level in the house, such as window replacements or appliance upgrades. What is often neglected is what's underneath your home - your crawl space in particular. You probably shut it out of your often visited places in your house or simply shut it out of your mind, because you don't go down into your crawl space unless you absolutely have to.
But the truth is that our home is a system, and every part of that system plays a role that affects the rest of the structure. You can't have one part of the building that is cold, and another part that is warm. Why? Simple. Air mixing - 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 or cold air gets upstairs in one of two ways - the stack effect, or the HVAC system through your ducts, making it more expensive to cool or heat your entire house.
Venting crawl spaces, as the building code in some states requires, isn't the right solution. In fact, it makes the problem worse. When you have a vented crawl space, those vents let hot and wet air in, making your floors hot upstairs in summer and cold in winter.
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.

Project Location: Pikeville, NC 27863
Comment: I just moved into the home on last year. I have a recently installed new vapor barrier but no sealed vents and no dehumidifier. I have been monitoring my crawl space air since the install. The humidity remains between 60 and 98 percent. It is also humid in the garage. I am curious to know if the insulation is holding moisture and should be replaced with the foam board. I also need to know if there is a sump pump installed or needed. Thank You
