A Crawl Space Dehumidifier Will Help Maintain A Healthy Crawl Space

Crawl space dehumidifiers are the piece that ties the crawl space together. Dehumidifiers provide some of the essential benefits of maintaining a healthy crawl space. Automated humidity control, moisture control in the wood, healthy air, mold growth prevention, auto draining, and clean insulation are just some of the reasons to install one in your crawl space.

Clean Crawlspace sells and installs only the highest-quality dehumidification brands, ensuring you have the best equipment installed.

What Are Crawl Space Dehumidifiers?

Crawl space dehumidifiers are appliances that help protect your home and do several things; First and foremost, they dry out the air under the house, resulting in a healthy and stable relative humidity level in the air. Secondly, crawl space dehumidifiers circulate and filter the air.

It is essential to have a healthy airspace inside the home and to maintain appropriate insulation under the home. Almost every crawl space in the south needs a great dehumidifier!

What Is The Best Dehumidifier For My Crawl Space?

One of the common questions asked when going through the dehumidifier installation process is “which dehumidifier is best”? Clean Crawlspace has used several different brands of dehumidifiers through the years and has determined the strongest on the market today in terms of filter installation and replacement, fan and discharge system design, warranty, energy efficiency, quietness, built-in humidity control, and overall functionality.

The filter cleans dust, mold spores, fiberglass particles, and dust mites out of the air. Many models use filters that are easily removable and cleaned, eliminating the need to buy filters.

The best dehumidifiers run quiet. This is especially important when the crawl space is smaller, and the dehumidifier is located closer to the floor above.

Lastly, many modern dehumidifiers have a built-in humidistat. This means Clean Crawlspace can set the unit to 50% relative humidity, an essential factor of most crawl space moisture and mold control. Since it is self-regulated, it will run as needed to control the humidity. Combined with a discharge system, a humidistat makes for a fully automated unit.

Crawl Space Dehumidifier With Pump/Discharge System

Most homeowners do not want to add an “empty dehumidifier bucket” to their daily to-do list. That is why having a dehumidifier with a pump or a discharge built-in is important! Clean Crawlspace includes this in virtually every dehumidifier installation job that we do. Most of the time, it is a gravity-fed discharge out of the crawl space and sometimes a condensate pump system, if needed. Either way, no emptying the bucket in the crawl space!

Crawl Space Humidity Is The #1 Factor Causing Mold Growth

Mold can only grow when the relative humidity in the air is above 55%. That is why a dehumidifier is so important. Once the mold is removed, the only way to ensure it does not return is to regulate the crawl space humidity. All too often, Clean Crawlspace will talk to potential customers who spent good money to remove the crawl space mold in the past, only to find out it came back again because humidity levels were too high. It’s always better to fix the issue right the first time and not end up having to pay for it twice. Give us a call today to get more information on installing one of these turnkey dehumidification systems in your crawl space today!

Common Places Homeowners Look to Purchase a Crawl Space Dehumidifier

 Sometimes, homeowners will purchase a crawl space dehumidifier at a local home improvement store when looking to lower their crawl space humidity and solve the problem themselves.

The biggest problem with those units is that they last, on average, six months to one year, AND have a bucket that must be emptied every day! In most situations, it is worth it to invest in a professional-grade dehumidifier, as it saves money in the long run. The most expensive solutions are the ones you must pay for repeatedly!
