Even when it’s installed properly, fiberglass is loses its R value when it is damp.

If your home has a crawl space and isn’t insulated, then it should be! For such a small area, a crawl space offers great energy savings when insulated properly. So if you’re going to insulate your home, DO NOT forget about the crawl space.

Crawl spaces are small, confined spaces built directly into the dirt under your home. Since they are in the soil, they tend to absorb the natural cold of the earth around your foundation and outdoor air and transfer it into the air in your crawl space.

If you have utilities in your crawl space such as your ducts, furnace, or water pipes, your energy bills will be higher. This cold air entering through the vents will work against your utilities, forcing them to work harder just to maintain a comfortable environment.
