A proper amount of insulation is critical to keeping your Georgia home warm in the winter and cool in the summer, and one of the places that is often overlooked while insulating a home is the crawl space. A poorly-insulated crawl space can lead to chilly floors in the winter, it can increase energy costs year-round, and it can cause moisture and condensation problems. By properly insulating your crawl space, you can protect your home, reduce your heating and cooling costs, and increase your comfort.
At Harrell King Heating & Air, we can help you to determine what type of insulation will be best for your crawl space, and we can install it for you, making sure that precautions are taken to eliminate moisture, mold, and insect problems. We feature a highly experienced, dedicated team that will make sure the job is done correctly.

Heat naturally travels from warm areas to cool areas, until an equilibrium is reached between the two. When you are heating or cooling a home, insulation helps to slow down this natural heat transfer process, allowing your heating or cooling system to use less energy. In your crawl space, where hot and cold air often mix, insulation is even more important to avoid condensation and moisture problems, which can lead to mold growth, water damage, and insect infestations.
The benefits of proper crawl space insulation include:
In a ventilated crawl space, outside air is allowed into the space underneath your home, which helps to prevent moisture problems but requires more insulation. To insulate a ventilated crawl space, fiberglass is typically used between the floor joists, and it is covered by a vapor barrier to reduce moisture problems. Any ducts or pipes that hang below the joists must be separately insulated, increasing the amount of insulation required, and increasing the complexity of the job.
