Making a conditioned crawlspace
I have been reading about conditioned crawlspaces. Would this be a project that I should even think about taking on myself? Our house has a layer a plastic on the ground and fiberglass insulation between the joist. The reason I am considering this is the florida room tends to stay cooler and warmer than the rest of the house. I have some of the 1 1/2″ blue foam insulation that I was thinking of covering the foundation with. Should I leave the fiberglass insulation in place or remove it? Also, what about covering the floor joist with a layer of insulation board that has the silver on one side? The crawlspace is dry and we don’t have any problems with drainage.
