Dehumidifier in Crawl Space

Crawl spaces are traditionally dark, damp spaces, perfect for mold and mildew to work undetected below your home. If left undetected long enough, the structure could be dangerously impacted; not to mention the mold spores that could begin to affect the health of you and your family.

Over many years of building and maintaining homes, countless solutions have been tested to eliminate this very problem. The most effective solution by far has been a fully encapsulated crawl space and a dehumidifier.

For many years, venting the crawl space to the outdoors was considered the best fix to moisture intrusion. This logic came from the idea that air from the outside would help dry out the crawl space. However, while installing or opening vents to the outside may help the overall air quality, the moisture in the air won’t dissipate unless the air outside is drier than it is in the crawl space itself. In climates of near constant humidity, this method wouldn’t be possible.

It was also thought that keeping fans running below the home would help dry out any moisture that could cause issues later, but this method is largely ineffective; unless you live in an area with very little relative humidity year-round.

The goal is to keep the relative humidity in the crawl space below 70%. Below this percentage, the humidity will not have a major effect on the structure. If the humidity in your crawl space is already out of these bounds and you have standing water in the space, these issues will have to be dealt with first. A crawl space dehumidifier can do wonders in preventing standing water, mold and mildew, but can do nothing if the problems already exist.
