How Humidity Enters Your Crawl Space
Because of the openings for pipes, cables, ducts, and wires, your home isn’t completely sealed from the outdoor elements, and as your home ages it becomes even more susceptible to the infiltration of humid air. As humidity rises in your crawl space, it can gradually eat away at the structure. Plus, as warm air rises through your home, it creates a vacuum that pulls in even more humidity to the lower levels, which can show up as condensation. This so-called Stack Effect can damage the structure of your home and dramatically reduce your energy efficiency.
How Humidity Affects Your Home
When humidity goes unchecked in your home, it can cause a wide range of effects, including:
- Increased energy bills
- Musty odors
- Mold and mildew growth
- Metal corrosion
- Rotting wood
If you do not address humidity with proper waterproofing or a professional dehumidifying system, you could have serious consequences on your hands, such as collapsing floors, pest infestations, and wood rot. Pests can create particularly hazardous air quality conditions that may put your health at risk.
