When people think of dehumidifiers, they typically think of the interior of their homes. They want to put them in the bedroom or living room so they can improve the air quality inside their houses. In reality, dehumidifiers can actually provide more benefits when they are in the crawlspace.
- Prevents Mold and Mildew- Crawlspaces gather a lot of moisture. Mold and mildew thrive in moist climates, meaning they can easily take over your crawlspace. Then they can get into the vents and move through your house, where they can make you sick. A crawlspace dehumidifier can prevent mold and mildew from growing, so you won’t have to worry about this problem. Just make sure you don’t have any mold or mildew in your crawlspace prior to installing the dehumidifier. If you do, it will have the opposite effect and actually push it through the air.
- Fights Moisture in Humid Climates- You can have lots of ventilation in your crawlspace, but if the outside air is humid, the moisture will not evaporate. If you install a crawlspace dehumidifier, you won’t have to worry about this issue. A dehumidifier takes the humidity out of the air, which allows the moisture to evaporate.
- Fights Back Against Pests- Pests thrive in damp environments. A crawlspace dehumidifier will make the area a lot less attractive to these pests. If you don’t want your crawlspace to become a breeding ground for pests, it makes sense to install a dehumidifier.
