Vapor Barriers, Moisture Control & Crawl Space Encapsulation
Why Is Moisture Control Important?
If your house has a crawl space, you’ve probably noticed the fountain ventilation on the outside of your home. The original purpose of these fountain ventilations was to circulate and replace the air in the crawl space with fresh air from the outside. For many years, this system appeared to work very well. Scientific Studies* have shown that conventionally vented crawl spaces may not only cost us more energy dollars, but may also cause serious threats to indoor air quality.
The professionals at American Termapest can discuss our crawl space encapsulation options with you to ensure that your home is well-equipped to control moisture.

CrawlSpace Care Moisture Control & Management
CrawlSpace Care® is a system that was developed for closing and protecting your home’s crawl space. Using innovative technology, the CrawlSpace Care® system reduces moisture underneath your home which can lead to lower energy bills and improved indoor air quality.
Even without warm, moist air entering through the fountain ventilation, or by condensation, moisture will still impact your home through the natural moisture vapors which rise from the ground below your home. What can be done to remedy the multiple sources of moisture in our crawl spaces? CrawlSpace Care is the answer!
