Complete the Thermal Envelope with ComfortTherm Crawlspace Insulation
Traditional paper-backed fiberglass insulation in the crawlspace can support mold growth, serve as a food source for pests, and is poorly suited for humid environments. Crawlspace insulation of this nature tends to sag and fall due to the added weight from moisture, old age, and the vibration of occupants walking on the floor above. The insulation eventually starts to drop from between the floor joists losing its effectiveness to maintain the home’s thermal envelope. Also high humidity environments need a non-vapor barrier product allowing any airborne moisture to dissipate, rather than become trapped between the poly and the subfloor.
Complimenting the TAP® Attic Capping Program is the ComfortTherm Crawlspace Insulation System featuring poly-encapsulated fiberglass batts. It’s the ideal product to rid a home of cold floors, reduce sound infiltration, and decrease your customer’s energy costs. ComfortTherm is installed in the home’s crawlspace and makes your floors warmer while reducing sound infiltration, improving the quality of air in the home, and lowering annual cooling and heating bills. ComfortTherm adds to the overall value and comfort level of the home.
Note: ComfortTherm Crawlspace Insulation is not an EPA-registered pesticide and should not be sold to treat or control pests.
