Just had my mobilehome resided with vinyl paper wrapped the whole bit.

New regulation codes say every 4 feet venting is needed. Now my house is colder than before. Walking on kitchen floor is freezing. What do I use to close some of these vents. I use electric heat so no carbon is coming in.

    we used to put hay bails all around, the house. I'd put them behind the skirting. Some states have a weatherization program, like Nebraska. They insulated under my floor.

    Insulate. Start with the floor and work your way up.

    what size of vents are needed? Also get some insulation from on of the big box stores & staple it to the underside of those rooms that have cold floors. You have to get into the underside of the mobile home. You can staple the insulation up.

  • You need to install insulation underneath. So sorry this is happening to you! In winter you need the floors to be warm.

    Linda and Naomie have the right solution. Your floors need to be insulated from underneath.
