Many Mold, Discomfort, and Indoor Air Quality issues can be traced directly to your home’s crawl space. Standing water and high humidity also create a serious risk to the home’s structural integrity as well.

Did you know?

50% of the air you breathe on the first floor of your home comes from the crawlspace!

A healthy crawl space is crucial for maintaining the overall wellness of your home. It directly impacts your home’s air quality, energy efficiency, and structural integrity. At FLC Energy, our expertise lies in transforming neglected, moisture-ridden, and critter-prone crawl spaces into sanitary, moisture-free, and wholesome zones, providing a more pleasant living atmosphere throughout the entire home.

What is Crawl Space Conditioning and Encapsulation?

Crawl space conditioning involves controlling the temperature and humidity levels in your crawl space to prevent issues like mold growth and structural damage. Crawl space encapsulation is a process where a heavy-duty polyethylene barrier is used to completely cover your crawl space floors and foundation walls.  In some cases, we may even “encapsulate” your floor-joists and sub-floor with Closed Cell Spray Foam Insulation. This work creates a moisture and vapor barrier that prevents dampness, mold, and pests.

Why Do I Need To Get My Crawl Space Encapsulated?

Crawl space services are essential for any homeowner who wants to maintain a healthy, safe, and energy-efficient home. Unattended crawl spaces can become breeding grounds for mold, pests, and other harmful elements that can affect your home’s air quality, structural integrity, and energy efficiency. By investing in crawl space conditioning and encapsulation, you can prevent these issues, protect your home, and enhance your living conditions.

Increase the Value of Your Home

A well-maintained crawl space not only ensures a healthier home but also adds to its value. Prospective buyers are more likely to invest in a home that is free from mold, pests, and structural issues. By investing in crawl space services, you’re enhancing your home’s appeal and increasing its market value. FLC’s Pearl Certification process ensures this value with a Green Appraisal Addendum!

Lower Your Energy Bills

A conditioned and encapsulated crawl space can significantly improve your home’s energy efficiency. By preventing air leaks and moisture buildup, it helps maintain a consistent temperature in your home, reducing the strain on your HVAC system and leading to lower energy bills.

Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

Crawl space services play a vital role in improving your home’s indoor air quality. By controlling humidity and preventing the growth of mold and mildew, these services ensure that the air you breathe inside your home is clean and healthy.

Spray Foam Insulation for Crawl Spaces

A key component of our conditioning and encapsulation process is the use of closed cell spray foam insulation. This high-performance material not only provides superior thermal insulation, but also forms a continuous barrier against air and moisture infiltration, making it the ideal solution for crawl spaces. Importantly, the spray foam insulation helps maintain an average temperature of about 70 degrees year-round in the crawl space, contributing to a more comfortable and energy-efficient home.

We had roof insulation done as part of a state program. The day of the job they noticed and informed us of several leaks they found in our roof. Between FLC and the roofer they were able to work around each other to get the job done in the timeline they had originally set even with the issues found.

We had a serious carbon monoxide problem with our water heater. Ryan came out and not only identified this problem but identified numerous ways we could save energy. The energy work was done promptly and we were informed of energy credits that were available to us Due to his audit we proceeded to have a new water heater (tank less--our choice) installed. I would have no problem recommending an energy audit by Ryan even if you aren't starting from a position where a problem exists. The long lasting bulbs we received throughout the house easily defrayed the minimal cost of the audit.

My wife and I purchased a home in Centreville that had been vacant for a few years. It was built in 1980 and hadn't been insulated very well. We gathered numerous estimates and did a lot of research before settling on FLC. I dealt with Ryan from the start. He is very professional and it was clear from our first conversation that there are strong values at FLC concerning customer service. We hired them to insulate our attic and to condition our crawl space. They arrived on scheduled and worked consistently until the project was complete. They worked out a $2,000 rebate offered through the state and didn't justify hacking up there price because of it like a couple other companies had clearly done. They also didn't subcontract the work out. Ryan was present for the whole thing. They managed to get the house insulated like a new construction, twice as efficient as before. We have been living here for 5 months now and everything they did has been working. The crawl is so comfortable I don't even mind when I need to enter it. Lastly, in month one we had a pipe burst in a location near an outer wall. This was not the fault of FLC but I explained that I had assumed that area would be protected by the attic insulation they had installed. Ryan came in and built an insulation box around the at risk pipes and only charged me materials - less than $80. Can't recommend these guys enough.
