Did you know that 50% of the air you breathe on the first floor of your home could be coming from your crawl space? Having a crawl space dehumidifier is a great way to help improve the air quality within your home. Here are some of the benefits of having a dehumidifier in the crawl space of your home.
- Structural Integrity
A crawl space without a dehumidifier will experience higher humidity, which creates moisture and wet wood. Wet wood begins to rot, weakens, and jeopardizes the stability of your home’s foundation. Additionally, a wet crawl space is a breeding ground for mold and mildew.
- Pest Control
Moisture in your crawl space will attract unwanted pests, such as dust mites, rodents, and bugs. Having a dehumidifier in your crawl space will control the humidity which will help keep unwanted pests out of your home’s crawl space.
- Energy Savings
A crawl space dehumidifier can help lessen the cost of energy bills for your home. A dehumidifier will create a controlled environment within your home’s crawl space, allowing you to keep your home at the desired temperature. This will ultimately help save money on energy bills.
- Healthier Living Space
High humidity in your home can create an uncomfortable environment for your family. It will become hot and sticky, causing you to want to adjust your thermostat. When a dehumidifier is installed in your home’s crawl space, it will help control and potentially lessen the amount of humidity in your home.
