The crawl space beneath your home is often vulnerable to high humidity which can lead to mold problems, pest infestations, structural damage, and even allergy symptoms for you and your family. A dehumidifier is a great solution for controlling humidity in your crawl space or cellar and prevents excess moisture from entering your main living area. Our top recommended dehumidifiers below are specifically designed to keep damaging moisture in crawl spaces under control. Crawl space dehumidifiers are built with low-temperature operation in mind and include automatic defrost systems that quickly melt frost buildup so the unit can resume dehumidifying in no time.
High humidity not only creates problems under your home, but can also lead to problems inside. The air in your home flows like a chimney. As warm air rises and escapes through the top of your house, cooler air is pulled in from the bottom. In fact, a recent study found that up to 40% of the air on the first floor of your home originates in your crawl space. If that air is humid, damp, and musty, it may lead to air quality problems throughout your entire 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, installing a dehumidifier is often your best bet.
