Having a dehumidifier can provide a number of different benefits to the air quality and environment in your home and crawl space. A dehumidifier will allow you to lower humidity levels to help protect from moisture that could lead to mold or wood rot. Reduces allergens like mold spores, dust mites, and mildew that can accrue in the crawl space and under your home. Additionally, it can keep wood moisture levels low to prevent your wood joists and beams from warping.
Other benefits include eliminating the condensation which occurs along air conditioning duct work in the crawl space as well as preventing rust on any metal surfaces. Ultimately, installing a dehumidifier help to eliminate odors and keep clean air flowing into your crawl space and home. Find out how adding a dehumidifier in your home will help protect your home and save you money down the road.
Unsealed crawl spaces and basements are exposed to high moisture and humidity which make them more susceptible to moisture and mold growth, structural damage, and even allergy issues due to poor air quality for people inside the home. Due to the Stack effect, the movement of air into and out of buildings and homes cycles the dusty air and spores from the crawl space throughout your home due to whats called air buoyancy.
Air buoyancy occurs due to a difference in indoor-to-outdoor air density resulting from temperature and moisture differences. In essence, the moisture and musty odors in your crawl space will always occur in your home, unless all the air spaces and openings in your floor are sealed, and there is a dehumidifier to manage and maintain safe moisture levels and air quality. If you suffer from allergies or asthma, the irritants in the air might affect you more harshly than someone who does not.
