Managing the Environment of Your Crawl Space

Managing the Environment of Your Crawl Space

Alex Glenncrawl space2:00 pm on Friday, May 8th at The Gathering Place. Have you wondered about how to manage the environment in the crawl space under your house?  Your crawl space can have a dramatic effect on your living area: think of heat or cold entering through the floor, mold formation, allergies and asthma.

The Green Scene is sponsoring a presentation by Alex Glenn, an expert from non-profit Advanced Energy, a planning, technical and engineering services firm that provides market-based energy solutions to utilities, manufacturers, government regulators, and contractors. Alex typically trains commercial installers on the best strategies and methods for properly managing micro-atmospheric conditions in residential sub-basements and crawl spaces.

Most homeowners have little knowledge of what’s involved in properly managing the environment under their home. Alex will be explaining the basics of the science involved in managing such conditions so a homeowner can have some reference points when considering best options for their proper crawl space management. This will be an educational, informative program. He wil not be selling any product, installation, or contractor service.

Alex has a comprehensive background in residential construction and building performance, including diagnostic and energy evaluations of both new and existing homes. His presentation is underwritten by a grant from Duke Energy Progress and is free to all interested Fearrington Village residents.

 Free drinks and snacks will be served after the presentation.
