This photo captures the vented crawl space before the encapsulation process has begun. In the winter, vents let cold air directly into the home. Floor insulation sag away from the sub floor and the cold air gets above it causing the insulation to be useless. In the summer, the vents let warm air into the crawl space causing high humidity.

Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva has begun installing drainage matting along the dirt floor of the crawl space. The drainage matting is dimpled to create air space for water to flow.
Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva has sealed off the vents with our insulated vent covers. . This allows no further air to leak from outside and into the crawl space.
The crawl space has been encapsulated by Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva. First by installing SilverGlo along the walls, then drainage matting along the dirt floor and finalizing with CleanSpace liner.

These homeowners in Camden Wyoming, DE were struggling with their vented crawl space.
In the winter, the vents let cold air directly into the home. The floor insulation sags away from the sub floor and the cold air gets above it making the insulation useless. In the summer, the vents let in warm air causing high humidity in the crawl space. This can cause condensation, mold, and odors.
Dr. Energy Saver's solution to vented crawl spaces is the CleanSpace Encapsulation System with SilverGlo insulation on the walls. The vents and other air leaks in the crawl space are sealed and it is insulated with SilverGlo insulation. Then, CleanSpace crawl space encapsulation liner is installed along the dirt floor of the crawl space. The results are lower humidity in the crawl space, a more comfortable home and lower utility costs.
