We are considering encapsulating a Crawlspace for a 600 square foot single story house in North Carolina located very near the border of Climate Zone 3A and 4A. The home is currently heated by a wood stove and cooled with a window unit A/C. The attic has been air sealed and insulated.
Typically, we’d introduce conditioned air into the crawlspace via duct, but having none, should we install a small fan and exhaust through the foundation wall? We’re planning to airseal the house floor. Should we consider an air grill between the house and the crawl? I’m not a huge fan of this, however would respect your input.
