Scott replied to Evan Riter's discussion Making crawlspaces conditioned space
"The "State Code" comment is dead on.  In North Carolina, they terminate the crawlspace wall insulation above grade.  In the IRC, it is required to go 2' into the ground or 2' out along the ground like you do…"

Scott replied to Evan Riter's discussion Making crawlspaces conditioned space
"Bob,   The most commonly used rigid foam board used on crawlsapce walls is probably Thermax Sheathing and it has passed FM 4880 which means it does not require ignition barrier protection.  You can look it up by going to…"

"Excellent Question Bud.  Advanced Energy originally did their pilot work in North Carolina where it's hot and humid.  Years later, they did investigative work in Flagstaff and Baton Rouge.  What they found tracks well if you keep…"

"Good.  I thought so.  If you really want to see the 'Bible' of crawlspace conditioning, you can go to advancedenergy.org and go to Crawlspaces under the Quick Links tab in the header.  There is more information there than…"

Scott replied to Evan Riter's discussion Making crawlspaces conditioned space
"Evan, I wonder where you are working.  Here in North Carolina, some 30-40% of the houses are built with a sealed crawlspace like the one you are describing.The only question I have is about the last word in your paragraph.  What do you…"

Scott replied to Bachi Brunato's discussion Savings for Conditioned Crawlspaces

Scott replied to Mark Bradley's discussion Does anyone have any experience with an Owens Corning product called "Energy Complete" ?
"Mark,   I don't think it is intended to be used in a hybrid insulating system.  The tech data sheet doesn't seem to list an R-value and I can't find any suggestion that it be used in full coverage.  I would say that it…"

Scott replied to George M. Matthews's discussion Sealing crawlspaces and insulating them with polyurethane foam
"George,   The sealed crawlspace concept is very popular here in North carolina and surrounding states.  The best place to go for answers to your questions is advancedenergy.org and look up in their foundation sealing section.  Some…"
