Crawl Space Dehumidifier Installation

No one wants mold to be growing right under their nose, but that’s exactly what happens in a damp and humid crawl space.

Crawl space dehumidifier installation helps you avoid this issue and other moisture problems. Mount Valley Foundation Services can help with expert tools and knowledge.

Since 1986, we’ve been helping homeowners in Savannah, Greenville, and other parts of South Carolina resolve their crawl space issues. Read on to learn how and why a dehumidifier in your crawl space is a good idea.

What is a Crawl Space Dehumidifier? 

Crawl space dehumidifiers remove extra moisture from crawl spaces, which can become damp due to wet soil or humid weather. Excess moisture can lead to mold growth and wood rot, damaging your home’s structure.

The dehumidifier works by pulling in moist air, cooling it, and condensing the moisture into water droplets. These droplets are collected in a tank inside the dehumidifier and then drained away.

To keep the crawl space dry, the dehumidifier needs to run frequently. Most dehumidifiers have a hygrometer that measures the air’s moisture level and automatically turns the dehumidifier on and off as needed, ensuring the air in your crawl space stays healthy and dry.

Signs You Need a Crawl Space Dehumidifier 

Indications that your home could benefit from a crawl space dehumidifier include: 

These signs suggest excessive moisture or drainage issues in your crawl space that require prompt expert intervention to prevent more severe problems. 

Is a Crawl Space Dehumidifier Necessary?

To maintain dry and healthy air quality in your home, a crawl space dehumidifier is essential. Without one, high humidity can damage your home’s structure, harm indoor air quality, and lead to costly repairs.

Installing a dehumidifier helps prevent these issues and provides long-term protection for your home. Keep in mind that a standard dehumidifier from a big box store isn’t powerful enough for a damp crawl space.

For the best results, work with Mount Valley Foundation Services. You’ll receive a high-quality dehumidifier that can remove up to 100 pints of water per day and is self-draining.
