A case study was conducted in Ohio to evaluate the performance of conditioned crawl spaces: three conditioned crawl spaces were constructed in Ohio (one in Cleveland, two in Columbus) and they were monitored over a twelve-month period.
The study shows that the differences between the crawl spaces that are “actively” conditioned versus the crawl space that is “passively” conditioned are quite significant. Active conditioning in crawl spaces does a much better job in terms of controlling the relative humidity and indoor temperature.
A dirt, vented or unconditioned concrete crawl space under a home is a very bad idea. 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, 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.
In addition, the earth has very high humidity in the soil and the moist air and everything in your crawl space can be sucked up into the living areas of the home. Mold spores, odors, humidity and critters create a very unhealthy environment for people. Many people are allergic to these things, and experience a host of symptoms and don't realize that their dirt crawl space is affecting their health.
To prevent the dirt crawl space from having any negative effects on the rest of the house, Basement Redeemers is proud to offer their customers Basement Systems CleanSpace Crawl Space Encapsulation System. This 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 to make the entire house healthier and more energy efficient.
