Crawlspace Dehumidifier Installation

Your crawlspace can control a large amount of the humidity in your home as well as the overall level of comfort. When there are high levels of humidity in the crawlspace the humidity in the home will be high which can create musty odors in the home. It can also cause your heating and cooling system to have to work harder than it needs to in order to control that higher humidity. One of the most reliable ways to prevent the excess humidity is to install a high quality dehumidifier as part of an encapsulation system. This dehumidifier will be able to permanently reduce the high levels of humidity and control the growth of mold and mildew which create the musty smell. This will also help keep the entire home more comfortable and decrease the workload on the hvac system.

Problem: Humidity, Must & Odor

A crawlspace is a very contained area underneath your home. In most cases, it lacks any ventilation that will keep air circulation flowing on a regular basis. As humidity swells in your crawl space the moisture has no where to go and eventually begin to rot wooden frames and supports. Mold can also become a problem over time creating bacteria and a perfect environment for pests, bugs, critters, and unwanted animals. Over time it can generate must and odor from the live mold that continues to grow and spread underneath your home- making the air quality your family breaths extremely hazardous.
