I have a small farm house built in 1930 on a cement poured foundation with a crawlspace of only 12″ clearance. I’ve read a lot of articles about venting, conditioning, encapsulating but I’m not sure which applies best to my situation. The crawlspace has a dirt floor and had moisture damage along the sill which has since been fixed. It has never had any insulation or encapsulation or venting and is otherwise in relative good shape. The home does not have air conditioning. Does it make sense to encapsulate or insulate this older home’s dirt crawlspace considering it has held up relatively well in the past? It does get quite humid in the crawlspace and in NY we have cold winters and hot summers. There is no ductwork.
