Commonly, homeowners will find that they have excessive moisture in their crawl space and purchase a dehumidifier from a retail store. Unfortunately, many of these retail products are not optimal for crawl space usage. Many require daily emptying of a water tank or simply can not handle the work that a humid crawl space provides in the southern summers. There is no tank to empty with an Aprilaire dehumidifier, the dehumidifier connects to a PVC pipe that runs outside the crawl space, so you never have to empty a tank!
Aprilaire products are Energy Star certified and cost about $189 less to run during the summer than a cheaper retail model. And in the summers utilizing a dehumidifier in addition to your normal A/C can take a lot of the strain off of your air conditioning unit.
Aprilaire dehumidifiers are fully automated with a built-in humidistat; simply set the dehumidifier to the desired relative humidity, and the unit will automatically kick on and off as needed to control the humidity. Combined with the discharge system, Aprilaire is a fully automated unit.
How An Aprilaire Crawl Space Dehumidifier Can Benefit Your Home
When it comes to protecting the life of your home and your foundation, prevention is the name of the game. If you find that your crawl space or basement has a foul odor, mold or mildew, or a pest problem in the warmer months, a dehumidifier can help prevent these problems from returning once they have been identified and repaired.
An excellent crawl space dehumidifier can benefit your home in many aspects. The biggest being mold growth prevention and discouraging pests. When mold and mildew become excessive in or under a home due to water and moisture in a crawl space or basement, they can create many problems for your family and health. They can worsen or create allergy symptoms, worsen asthma or other respiratory issues, cause nasal or sinus congestion or infection, develop a chronic cough or sore throat, making breathing difficult, and cause skin or eye irritation.
However, mold can only grow when the relative humidity is above 55%, so a dehumidifier can easily prevent mold spores from taking root in your crawl space. This can save you the cost of dealing with it later down the line and prevent mold and mildew particles, and other allergens that are bad for your health from entering the home.
Moisture in your crawl space is like an open invitation to pests, such as rodents, bugs, and mites. Problems such as termites or mites can wreak havoc on your home’s foundation and are extremely difficult to get rid of once they have infested your home. Luckily mites cannot survive in 50% humidity or less, so humidity control is an excellent way to prevent mites from damaging your home.
