Crawl Space Solutions include sealing the crawl space as one of the many options to address moisture issues.
This home HAD a significant moisture issue brought about by:
A. Over sized foundation vents and
B. 2 powerful foundation vent fans that circulated more airflow through the crawl space. The old theory was the more air flow under the home the better. We now know that humid NC air passed over your 72 degree floor and 50-55 degree AC system and duct work leads to major sweating problems. The more air the more sweating that occurs.
Knowing that 50%+ of your homes air comes from your crawl space through rising warm air brought in from your foundation vents rising through your cold floor into the home and eventually out of your attic soffit vents, your air has to pass through the insulation that has been tainted by the issues you are about to see.
