I have a crawl space that is 6"-12" under the single story portion of the house and I have a tough time heating that area. I'd like to insulate this area but as you might wonder, how I get in there? Well, I can't, but I thought of the possiblity of blowing styrofoam peanuts up into this area. They are usually coated with a water proof agent. Does anyone think that this will be a good solution? Do you think that I will have a moisture problem? I'd like to blow this material all around my water lines, furnace ducts, sewer lines, etc. and really pack it in there. There would be plenty of air gaps as the peanuts won't become very dense. Any thoughts from anyone?

...can't think of any negatives. You might try to determine how the peanuts will hold up after several years of ground contact.
