Many people close off the air vents to their basements in order to prevent cold air from flowing under the house, unaware they may be creating a bigger problem. There is a reason air vents are required to start with. Without them moisture and mold growth will occur. The wires that hold up insulation will rust and the insulation will drop to the ground. Dry rot can also happen causing thousands of dollars in damage not covered by most insurance policies. Many older homes have closable air vents which are against code to install today. We at Kreth Handymen have seen air vents closed off with plywood, foam spray and stuffed with insulation. Do yourselfa favor! Open your air vents instead of calling Kreth Handymen for unnecessary repairs. Prevent pipes from freezing by wrapping them in foam or heat tape. Keep your house warmer by insulating your floor. Then spend your hard earned money on something fun like having Kreth Handymen build you a new deck or a custom kitchen! KRETH HANDYMEN Build It, Fix It, Remodel It.
