Problem: Addressing Air Quality and Humidity Control Challenges in a Spacious Murfreesboro, TN Custom Home’s Crawl Space
In the dynamic Murfreesboro, TN community, a newly built custom home presented a unique challenge in managing its expansive crawl space.
The residence, boasting a significant 4,500 sq. ft. area with a 4-foot height, encompassed a vast 18,000 cubic feet of crawl space. This necessitated a sophisticated solution for air filtration and consistent humidity control.
The challenge extended beyond the capacity of commercial-grade dehumidifiers; it involved ensuring the strategic movement and effective filtration of crawl space air.
In consultation with the Murfreesboro home’s builder, it was decided that dual dehumidification units would optimally serve this large space, promoting conditioned air circulation.
Additionally, integrating a conditioned air supply from the HVAC system into the crawl space was a crucial part of the strategy.
Solution: Implementing a Dual-Unit Dehumidification and Energy-Efficient Insulation Strategy in Murfreesboro, TN Custom Home Crawl Space
Addressing the Murfreesboro home’s crawl space needs, our team embarked on installing a durable, heavy-duty vapor barrier. Considering the ongoing work by other contractors in the space, this barrier was selected for its high resistance to damage and punctures.
Aiming for the highest moisture control and energy efficiency level, the solution involved applying closed-cell spray foam insulation to all exterior-facing foundation walls.
This insulation choice is renowned for its superior air-sealing properties. Closed-cell polyurethane foam not only boosts the efficiency of HVAC and dehumidification systems but also significantly improves the energy management and structural integrity of the Murfreesboro, TN, residence.
The crawl space of this custom home is now a model of advanced moisture protection and energy-efficient design, ensuring a healthy and sustainable living environment.
