Vented vs Closed Crawl Space

Free Estimate

    Pest Management Systems, Inc. is an industry-leading installer of closed crawl spaces in Greensboro, Winston-Salem, High Point and surrounding areas.

    If you’re a current homeowner, or, if you’re building a home, consider the following benefits of hiring PMi to install a closed crawl space for you:

    1. Saves Heating and Cooling Energy– This is one of the best benefits to installing a crawl space. This eco-friendly home addition consistently gives back to homeowners each month in the form of lower energy costs to cool and heat your home.
    2. Prevent Pest Infestation– Rodentstermites and other pests prefer dark, protected spaces with high moisture. By encapsulating your crawl space you take away the environment that pests love.
    3. Improves Indoor Air Quality– The air in your home actually comes from your crawlspace, so whatever is down there you and your family are likely breathing it in. Pest infestations and fungi can cause allergic reactions and the air quality in your home to drop. A closed crawlspace is a much cleaner and drier environment which means when you get a closed crawlspace system, you are likely to be breathing cleaner air.
    • “I enjoy working for PMi because of the family atmosphere, everyone here I consider family and we all have each other’s back. At the end of each day, I go home knowing we helped our customers on what can be a very stressful, frustrating day for them. I am grateful to work in a place which makes us grow to greater heights.”

      Kelly C.

    • “The reason I love not just my position in “bed bugs,” but the “pest field,” in general, period. Just as police, firefighters, and medical personnel are so important, I feel we are so important as well. We get out every day no matter the situation to give our clients a peace of mind, we help them solve their problems. If we do not do it who will… I have worked for a different pest control company in past and I must say hands down this have been the best company to work for. Everyone seems to be on page and a family no matter how new you are. They took time to properly train me, if I had questions it was answered and always been respectful… 🥳 woo PMI is the way to go 💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽!”

      Rick H.

    • “I am proud to work for a company that focuses so much energy on taking care of customers and employees. PMi is family oriented and focuses on everyone’s values and strengths. We truly accomplish more working together which positively impacts the daily lives of not only our customers, but our employees as well. I’m grateful to have started a career at PMi three years ago.”

      Shelley Q.

    • “It’s hard not to sound cliché’ but PMi is my extended family. From the first day I stepped into the office I felt welcomed and more importantly I felt like people were being themselves which made me feel more comfortable in stepping into a big role. I have had things come up that have required special circumstances and Billy and Laurie have truly been a blessing to me and my family. The people I work with everyday are hardworking people which makes joking around a breeze because it never gets in the way of getting the job done. It also helps that a lot of the people I work with have kids the same age as I do; the kids love it when we get to do fun things (Pre-Pandemic) like our Myrtle Beach Trip, Swarm Games, Grasshopper Games and Winter Wonderlights and they get to see everyone. I think good companies have good leaders; good leaders attract good people. I cannot wait to see how we can continue to grow this company and continue to help people in our community.”

      AJ R.

    • “Having worked both in the field and now in the office I can honestly say that I love my job here! It is more like being with family all day than coworkers. Everyone takes pride in what they do, and we take care of our customers as a team. It makes a difference when you like going to work every day.”

      Tracy M.

    • “PMi is a great company to be a part of. It is family owned and they make you feel like you are part of the family. They will let you know how much they appreciate you and how hard you work. I could not have asked for a better company to work for. I am so glad that I am a part of the PMi family!”

      Joni M.

    • “I have been at PMi for over 18 years, and its just a great company to work for. I have never seen a company, or the owners of a company do for their employees the way that they have done for us. It is one big happy family! I love working here and I love talking to our customers!”

      Kathy L.

    • “A great place to work! With a flexible schedule most of the time. A great owner that would do anything for you if u need Help! I have been with PMI for over 30 years and I love working with the customers trying to fix their issues with insects and rodents and I love working on my own!”

      Thomas O.

    • “I love working for PMi because it’s all about family. Everyone genuinely cares about each other and we truly care about our customers. My job gives me the opportunity to have a positive impact on people’s lives and make a difference every day. Every day is different challenge, yet exciting!! It is ok for me not to know everything and If I don’t, all I have to do is ask!! I love my job and all of my co-workers 😊!”

    ​Over the last few years, vented crawl spaces have fallen out of favor with home builders, and for good reason. Crawl space ventilation was once thought of as a great way to circulate air underneath the home, thus preventing air from stagnating and causing moisture to accumulate.

    While it’s true that vented crawl spaces do circulate air, they’ve also been found to contribute to higher energy costs, pest infestations, moisture and a serious degradation in indoor air quality. Fungi loves moisture, and fungi that sits under a home can get into the air supply, causing a series of health problems for inhabitants.
