It’s estimated that more than 50% of a home’s air enters through the crawl space. If that’s the case, then you better have a nice thick layer of insulation. Otherwise you’ll be dealing with cold floors and high utility bills.
It is recommended in Virginia to have R-19 valued insulation under your floors(6 1/4 inches thick). It’s HomePro’s advice to avoid sprayed-on style insulation. This type of insulation creates a moisture rich environment for termites and hides their activity until its way too late. Kraft faced fiberglass insulation is the best option because it is easily installed and can be moved during a termite inspection.
