How Your Crawlspace Affects Your Whole Home

< Back to Blog

You wouldn’t leave your windows and doors wide open in the winter, allowing cold drafts to blow through your home and raise your energy bills, would you?  Well, any open vents or gaps in your crawlspace will do just that. Even small cracks can lead to cold floors and rooms throughout your home, causing a drop in room temperature and a rise in utility bills.

How about in the summertime, when temperatures and humidity are high? Crawlspaces are the perfect environment for mold, rot and unwanted creatures. And if you believe that these components don’t factor into the rest of your home, think again. The air from your crawlspace is the air you breathe throughout your home, so any organic growth or radon that has contaminated your crawlspace is now being continuously cycled through your kitchen, living area and bedrooms.

While it may be undesirable, paying attention to the air in your crawlspace can have a huge impact on your health, so instead of making a monthly trip down to your creepy crawlspace, give Peak Structural a call and let us eliminate your crawlspace worries today!
