Utah is well known for its extreme temperatures, with cold weather in winter due to its elevation, and very hot summer in most areas of the state. The extreme weathers alongside rising energy costs have made Utah homes more expensive to operate - to heat and cool, and to maintain.
There are many kinds of home renovation or improvement to consider to make your home more energy efficient, but fixing your crawl space is one home repair you can't afford not to make.
The main problem with crawl spaces for many homeowners in Utah is that they are "out-of-sight, out-of-mind." However, just because you never go in the crawl space doesn't mean you are not affected by it.
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. A vented crawl space lets hot, wet, or cold air in, making your floors cold upstairs in winter and hot in summer. In addition, the crawl space air is bad - it is full of mold spores. And this crawl space air is in your building envelope. It gets upstairs in one of two ways - the stack effect, or the HVAC system through your ducts. Do you know that 1/3 to 1/2 of the air that you breathe on the first floor of your house came though your crawl space?
To combat the crawl space problems, Basement Systems has developed the CleanSpace system, an ultimate solution to dirt crawl space. The CleanSpace system completely isolates your home from the earth, dramatically reducing the humidity level in the air and eliminating mold growth, rot, and critters from your crawl space.

Comment: We added on to our home. The new part has a basement but the old part is just over a crawl space. We have a tile floor in a large part of that space. The floor is so cold in the winter and when the furnace kicks on the cold air return sucks all that cold air from the tile floor and you can feel cold air running through the house to get to the cold air return. It is terribly cold on our feet. We cannot be in the kitchen without shoes on.
