Is your home’s crawl space often overlooked? You might miss out on a significant opportunity to improve your home’s energy efficiency, comfort, and air quality. At Zhe Industries, with our specialized knowledge and experience, we can help you insulate your crawl space and install vapor barriers, ensuring a more comfortable and energy-efficient home.

Why Insulate Your Crawl Space Walls?

Did you know that insulating crawl space walls is crucial? Crawl space wall insulation is a thermal barrier, preventing heat transfer between your home’s interior and the external environment. Focusing on the crawl space walls instead of the ceiling prevents cold air from entering and maintains a dry, stable environment. This improves your home’s temperature control and reduces the risk of mold growth. 

Choosing the Right Insulation

The suitable insulation material can make all the difference. Common materials used in the Midwest include foam boards, spray foam, and fiberglass batts. Understanding the R-value of these materials, which measures their ability to resist heat flow, is vital. The U.S. Department of Energy recommends specific R-values based on your geographic region, with colder climates requiring higher R-values. Our experts at Zhe Industries can help you select the ideal insulation to meet your needs.  Zhe Industries only uses the best in the industry, check out Owens Cornings Insulation.

The Importance of Vapor Barriers

A vapor barrier is typically a polyethylene sheet 10-20 ml thick. It is essential in preventing moisture from seeping into your insulation, maintaining its effectiveness, and reducing the risk of mold growth. Our team ensures the proper installation of vapor barriers to safeguard your insulation investment.
