Most are anywhere between one and three feet in height and serve as a convenient place to hide ductwork, utilities, plumbing, wiring and more.

Signs You Need Crawl Space Insulation Services
If you’re like most homeowners, you don’t give much thought to your crawl space, but if you neglect to routinely inspect and maintain this area of your home, a number of issues may arise. Contact the professionals at EcoLogic Energy Solutions for expert crawl space insulation services if you notice any of these signs:
During the cold winter months, a lack of insulation in your crawl space can make hard flooring uncomfortable to walk on in bare feet and is a sure sign that you need additional insulation.
Mold and Mildew
If you notice a musty smell or see visible signs of mold or mildew, the crawl space insulation may have become wet and will need to be replaced.
Uneven Indoor Temperatures
A poorly insulated crawl space may send drafts up through the floor, leading to uneven temperatures between the rooms in your home.
If rodents, squirrels, bats, snakes and other creatures are able to make their way into your crawl space, they will make good use of your insulation to stay warm and use it as nesting material for their offspring. If you notice signs of an animal infestation, your insulation will need to be replaced, as it is likely to contain animal urine and feces, which can be detrimental to your indoor air quality and health.
