The benefits of mobile home insulated skirting include reducing heating and cooling costs, preventing animals from entering the undercarriage and increasing the resale value of the home. Insulated skirting also creates additional storage space for seasonal outdoor items, such as Christmas decorations or lawn mowers.
Insulated skirting improves the energy efficiency of a mobile home by preventing cold or hot air from collecting underneath the building and affecting interior temperatures. The skirting also helps maintain an average temperature under the house, which stops pipes from freezing.
Skirting hides exposed wires, pipes and other construction elements, giving the mobile home a finished look. Insulated skirting also provides structural support by improving the building’s weight distribution.
