When you’ve got high energy bills, pinning down the cause can be tough. Anything from insufficient insulation to improperly sealed windows could be the culprit. One of the easiest ways to cut costs on your utilities, however, is right below your feet.
Moisture in Virginia Crawl Spaces
Crawl spaces are naturally damp, which means the air circulating through your home becomes more humid. Because humid air is harder to heat and cool and approximately 50% of the air in your home enters through your crawl space, it can make your energy bills unusually high, especially during summer and winter when temperatures are at their most extreme.
