High humidity not only creates problems in your crawl space, it can be a problem for your entire home. The air in your home flows like a chimney. As warm air rises and escapes the out of top of your house, cooler air is pulled into your house from the bottom, your crawl space. In fact, a recent study found that up to 40% of the air on the first floor of your home was once found in your crawl space. If the air in this space is humid, damp, and musty, it may lead to air quality problems throughout your home.
If you suffer from allergies or asthma, you should be especially concerned about the quality of the air in your crawl space and how it might negatively affect you. While ventilation can sometimes help, it's usually not an adequate solution. A crawl space dehumidifier is often your best bet.
