By adding a layer of floor insulation you are providing a barrier between the ground and the indoor space of your home. This will help keep you more comfortable year round.
Floor insulation helps significantly reduce the air flow, moisture, mildew smells and draftiness from your crawlspace getting into your home.
This is especially important if you have hardwood floors as moisture can cause great damage and possibly warp your beautiful floors.
Floor insulation also helps reduce that hollow sound that hard surface floors can produce.
Visqueen Moisture Barrier
Many homes have severe moisture problems created by excess moisture and even flooding of their sub floors in some cases. By installing a 6-millimeter visqueen plastic sheeting directly on top of the soil a moisture barrier is created which prevents the moisture from rising and penetrating your floors.
Area rugs are recommended during the cooler months of the year because the coolest part of any house is the floors above the ground. Insulation does not heat or cool any space. What it does do is maintain the conditioned air from your heater or air conditioner for an extended period of time.
It’s a good idea to give Fido and Fefe a few extra warm layers if they sleep floor level in the colder months.
Here is another good example where setting ceiling fans to push the airflow downwards can help warm up the floors space.
