Energy Savings from the Bottom Up

If your home is anything like mine you have a high electric bill in the summer and a high gas bill in the winter.  When one goes down, the other one goes up.  Luckily, Northwest Exterminating offers services that can relieve some of those painful energy bills from the bottom of your house up.

Northwest’s Complete CrawlSpace system will not only soften those energy bills but it will improve the overall health of your home.  Crawl spaces are often filled with moisture.  Moisture leads to high levels of humidity which cause mold growth, pests, and energy loss.  Energy loss may sound like a good thing but it actually causes your system to work harder leading to higher energy bills.  Closing in your crawl space can control the amount of moisture, correcting the issues listed above and preventing them from happening in the future.  This would give you a healthier, more energy efficient living environment that could save you up to 18% on utility bills.

Another way to save on energy bills is to properly insulate your atticTAP attic insulation can reduce both your heating and cooling bills.  When you have the recommended r-value (insulation’s resistance to heat flow) your insulation works more efficiently, meaning your heating and air isn’t working overtime to compensate.  TAP attic insulation can save you up to 30% or more on your utility bills.  Other benefits include:

Is Your CrawlSpace Effecting the Health of Your Home?

Before and After

There are plenty of factors outside of your home that effect your health.  That is why it is so important that your home is a healthy place for you and your family.  If your home has a crawlspace, you are at an increased risk of having poor air quality circulating throughout your home.  One of the best ways to prevent mold growth and control pests in a crawlspace is to enclose it.  Closing your crawlspace has both health and monetary benefits.  The moisture, mold growth, high levels of humidity, and increase in pests can make your crawlspace an unhealthy area.  Because most crawl spaces are ventilated, these unhealthy factors can travel into the living areas of your home.  Not to mention that when the outside warm air meets the cooler air inside, it can lead to higher energy bills.  Enclosing your crawl space could save you up to 18% on your utility bills.

What is the “Stack Effect”?

As part of our Complete CrawlSpace service we have talked to you about the “stack effect”.  But what exactly is the “stack effect”?

As air enters the crawl space, the hot, moist, outside air meets the cool surfaces inside causing condensation to occur, which can lead to mold in your home.

As air enters the crawl space, the hot, moist, outside air meets the cool surfaces inside causing condensation to occur, which can lead to mold in your home.

As the air in your home warms, it rises and makes its way through the house and out of the roof.  This phenomenon is called the “stack effect”.  It causes the home to suck air up from the crawlspace into the main living area of the home.  Moist conditions in the crawlspace can lead to mold, mildew and other issues that compromise the air quality that comes up and through your home often aggravating breathing problems, such as asthma, and creating a variety of health-related problems.

We don’t have to explain to you the dangers of mold and mildew…we all know that these are harmful and you don’t want them in your home.  If you’re interested in finding out more information on how to keep the air in your home healthier for your family, call Northwest Exterminating at 888-466-7849 or visit us online.
