High humidity in your crawl space?
Nothing is more uncomfortable than high humidity inside your home. If your skin feels sticky no matter how much your air conditioner runs, or if your home smells musty, damp or stale, high humidity and the stack effect is to blame. When outside unconditioned air gets into your home through your crawl space, it travels to the upper levels of your house and pushes the conditioned air out, replacing it with air that is hot and humid. Not only does the stack effect make for a very uncomfortable living environment, it also contributes to high utility bills each month. This is where proper crawl space dehumidification becomes crucial.
SouthernDry can help you tackle high humidity with a professional-grade dehumidifier designed specifically for the unique crawl space environment. We offer units from the highest quality brands of Santa Fe and Aprilaire. Residential models purchased in home improvement stores can’t compare to these brands thanks to their capacity to fully dehumidify large areas. A high-capacity unit designed for the crawl space will also provide powerful air filtration as well use less energy when running. When paired with an encapsulation system, a dehumidifier in the crawl space will help keep the area dry, clean, and healthy for your family.
Here’s How Crawl Space Dehumidifiers Work
- First, humid air is pulled into the dehumidifier through the high-efficiency air filter
- It then passes over the evaporator coil. The cold surface of the evaporator coil combined with the humid air forces water to condense and droplets to form on the coil
- This water then drops into the drain pan and runs out of the dehumidifier through the drain tube
- The now cold, dry air passes over the condenser coils and is heated. This warm, dry air is then supplied to the location(s) needing dehumidification
