Why Do You Need A Dehumidifier In The Crawl Space?
Moisture and relative humidity are the main reasons your crawl space needs a dehumidifier. Mold can grow in any crawl space with humidity over 70%. Without a dehumidifier, your crawl space will reach and exceed this level 6-8 months of the year. A properly sized and installed dehumidifier will control crawl space humidity, preventing the conditions that invite mold growth, wood rot, and pests.
Instant Benefits From Installing The Right Crawl Space Dehumidifier:
Proper installation of a commercial-grade crawl space dehumidifier helps reduce humidity and wood moisture levels, preventing the conditions that foster mold growth and improving the indoor air quality of your home.
Improves Indoor Air Quality
By removing excess moisture and reducing humidity, installing a crawl space dehumidifier helps improve the overall air quality in your home, making it easier to breathe and reducing allergens.
Protects Structural Integrity
High humidity in your crawl space can lead to wood rot, decay, and structural damage over time. Installing a properly sized crawl space dehumidifier will help protect the wood structure of your home by controlling and stabilizing moisture levels.
Increased Energy Efficiency
Excess humidity can make your HVAC system work harder, increasing energy bills. Installing a dehumidifier can reduce this workload by making it easier for your system to cool and dehumidify your home, lowering energy costs.
