In my opinion, it's always a good idea to insulate the hot water pipes and install a vapor barrier. Not a good idea to close the under house air vents.

In regards to closing any under house air flow ventilation vents, read the prior posting topic called "close vents" asked by FontanaHorseman.

In that posted topic, you'll have two opposite opinons posted. The information posted may help you decide which to do. Leave them opened or close them.

You may also want to check back further into the archives, in this forum, for more opinions on the subject of closing underhouse air vents.
