The crawl space or basement of your Eastern Shore home may not be the most comfortable place to spend your time, but many homeowners do not realize that the crawl space can affect how healthy—and comfortable—the rest of your home is! In addition to the attic, the crawl space is one of the most important areas of the home when it comes to your overall comfort, safety, and energy efficiency. Total Home Performance offers a full range of crawl space services to resolve your poor indoor air quality, home comfort issues, and high energy costs, many of which quality for savings through the Home Performance with ENERGY STAR program!
The condition of your crawl space plays a critical part in your home’s health, safety, and comfort. Left unimproved, a crawl space along Maryland’s Eastern Shore can leak humidity and moisture, as well as odors, into your living space—air that’s not only unpleasant, but also unhealthy. It will also allow heated and cooled air to escape, wasting energy and hiking up utility bills.
The team at Total Home Performance will inspect your crawl space for possible bulk water problems, combustion appliance issues, and pests before we begin making any improvements. If any of these exist, we will help you address them before encapsulation for the safest and most effective solution. Once encapsulated, your crawl space will maintain a more even temperature relative to the ground and your home, controlling humidity and improving indoor air quality while decreasing your energy consumption.
As its name implies, encapsulation contains your crawl space within your home’s thermal envelope, conditioning the air inside it and keeping unwanted outside air from entering. Many crawl spaces house ductwork and plumbing which should be protected from varying outdoor temperatures. Encapsulation provides a consistent atmosphere for ductwork while making your crawl space a safer, healthier, and more energy efficient portion of your home.
If your crawl space or basement is damp and musty, it's important to control moisture and prevent mold growth. Total Home Performance offers professional mold remediation service and crawl or basement encapsulations throughout Maryland's Eastern Shore for better moisture control and protection against mold growth.
