Crawl Space Dehumidifier Solutions
To Control Dampness in a Crawl Space, call FSS for Dehumidifier Services
The crawl space underneath your home or business, while tucked away out of sight, can impact the space above. Excessive moisture can penetrate from below, causing problems that can affect the structure of a building as well as the comfort levels and health of the residents or employees. One way to make sure that crawl space moisture levels are under control is through the use of crawl space dehumidifiers.
Dehumidifiers: A Simple Effective Solution for Moisture Control
Did you know that, when air rises in a home, it is rising from up the ground, carrying any moisture or airborne components, like mold spores, with it. Experts estimate that up to half of the air on the first floor of our homes actually has risen up from the crawl space. Moisture levels contribute directly to the comfort of those living and working in the structure above.
To keep moisture levels in check for your home or business, a crawl space dehumidifier may be the right solution for you. Dehumidifiers can be quite beneficial in a number of ways:
Comfort - When humidity levels rise, comfort levels fall. Crawl space dehumidifiers help to control moisture issues where they start.
Health - High moisture levels can lead to mold and dust mites, which can cause health problems and aggravate symptoms. With the use of a dehumidifier, mold and mites have a less friendly environment in which to thrive.
Energy - If the comfort in your home is better with lower humidity, it means you are less likely to use extra air conditioning. Lower humidity levels will save on energy costs.
Pest Control - Less moisture in a crawl space area means less chance of pest infestation.
Structural Integrity - When moisture levels are high in a crawl space area, the wooden components are at risk for wood rot. Rotten wood can lead to the structural integrity of the pier and beams being compromised.
