Carolyn called us to help her encapsulate her crawl space.
Basement & Radon Solutions, BRS Pros, started by installing our Thermal Shield vapor barrier in Carolyn’s crawl space. Our Thermal Shield is a metal foil faced reflective wall liner with a plastic moisture barrier installed against the foundation wall. Thermal Shield is 90 mil thick, Class A Fire Rated with a near zero perm rate. The Thermal Shield reflects the natural occurring heat generated in the crawl space away from the foundation walls to provide a much warmer/dry space. Then we installed a 4 radon suction pipe into the ground of the crawl space. This is for just in case Carolyn experienced high radon gas levels. This will help her have the system in place and will cost her so much less down the road. Over top of the radon ready system , we installed our 15 mil premium ground liner. This liner is a walk on, store on, 15-mil white 100% woven reinforced radon ready crawl space system. The 15-mil woven ground liner will control moisture vapor and dampness from the ground. Our woven ground and wall liners are antibacterial, meaning mold and other organic growth will not grow to our liner. Then we installed an Aprilaire 1820 dehumidifier. This dehumidifier removes up to 70 pints of moisture per day! Proudly made in the USA and also comes with a 5 year warranty. Lastly, we installed a Hygrometer. It is a Remote Temperature and Relative Humidity Meter stand alone unit with one remote sensor. The wireless remote sensor was mounted in the crawl space to give Carolyn an accurate reading of relative humidity. This product will help you monitor the effective humidity of the dehumidifier in the crawl space. It was a pleasure helping Carolyn make her home safe, happy, and healthy!”
