Why Do You Need a Dehumidifier in Your Crawl Space

Research suggests that crawl spaces are prone to moisture problems with the primary sources originating from groundwater, soil evaporation, and plumbing problems. Considering moisture is inevitable in crawl spaces, the need for a solution is obvious. Dehumidifiers monitor and maintain humidity at perfect levels preventing many problems (from mold/mildew growth to pest and insect infestation).

Why Do You Need a Crawl Space Dehumidifier Service

A crawl space dehumidifier service is necessary in order to maintain a healthy environment and protect the property from moisture damage. The humid air that collects in a crawl space can cause wood rot, metal rust, and mold growth. A dehumidifier will extract the moisture from the air and prevent these problems.

Causes of High Humidity in Crawl Spaces

Evaporation from damp soil: Wet soil must lose water through evaporation when temperatures increase. The result is excess humidity in the air. When evaporation happens in crawl spaces, the humidity levels rise drastically. Besides typical temperature increases, furnaces or heating ducts in crawl spaces can increase evaporation rates.

Plumbing Leaks: Most homes have plumbing that passes in crawl spaces. When such pipes leaks, humidity levels increase when resulting moisture evaporates. Plumbing can be destroyed by pests, insects or wild animals that invade crawl spaces.

Flooding: Heavy rainfall can also be blamed for high humidity levels in crawl spaces.

Poor Drainage: Normal rainfall isn’t supposed to flood crawl spaces. However, areas with to poor drainage will flood every time it rains. This water stagnates in crawl spaces and evaporates.

Benefits of Installing a Dehumidifier in a Crawl Space

  1. Functional Crawl Space

A dehumidifier monitors and maintains perfect humidity levels making crawl spaces more functional. You can store items without worrying about moisture damage.

  1. Reduced Infestation and Mold Risks

Pests, insects, and mold all thrive in moist areas. Since a dehumidifier ensures the crawl space is dry throughout, the conditions are unfavorable for mold to grow or insects and pests to invade your home.

  1. Lower Expenses

A dehumidifier will eliminate moisture in your crawl space. This, in turn, eliminates mold problems and pest/insect infestation, which are costly to address. Also, dehumidifiers make it easy to maintain indoor temperatures, eliminating the need to overwork HVAC systems. The resulting benefit is a lower heating/cooling bill.

  1. Cheaper

Crawl space dehumidifier installation is cheaper than dealing with the effects of moisture damage.

Why Hire a Professional to Install a Dehumidifier in a Crawl Space

Safe Installation: Dehumidifiers are electrical appliances that professionals must install to reduce shock, fire and other hazards.

Related Crawl Space Services: Crawl spaces have many problems that a dehumidifier may not solve. For instance, you may have a mold or pest problem that must be fixed beforehand. A professional dehumidifier installer can offer such services.

Warranty Benefits: You can void your warranty by installing a dehumidifier incorrectly.

Technical Benefits: You need to consider several factors ranging from the size of crawl space to the power needs of your dehumidifier to buy the right dehumidifier and do a perfect installation. Professionals understand the technical aspects of installing dehumidifiers.

Frequently Asked Questions

Please take a moment to read answers to our most frequently asked questions about our services.

A dehumidifier should be placed where the discharged airflow is not obstructed and can be easily drained. Keep in mind that certain dehumidifiers can be noisy, so keep that in mind before installing one in an area where noise might be an issue.
For a tiny crawl area, a large room dehumidifier will suffice, but for a larger one, you may need to rent a commercial-grade machine. Set the dehumidifier to 45 to 55 percent humidity and leave it running for several hours before checking on the space. It could take eight to ten hours to dry the moist crawl space.
It’s uncommon to see crawl space wood moisture levels that are too low, but it might happen when a dehumidifier’s setting is so low that it overdries wood in the region.
The energy consumption of a dehumidifier is minimal. A tiny 30-pint dehumidifier consumes about 300 watts of power. A dehumidifier uses significantly less energy than a water heater, air conditioner, or even a hairdryer. A dehumidifier uses roughly the same amount of power as a PC. Our dehumidifiers are Energy Star Rated.
In general, the refrigerant type has a lengthy lifespan, lasting for years before eventually failing. A good unit should last 5 years or more if proper maintenance is done as recommended by the manufacture.
