Crawl Space Dehumidifier Solutions
Humidity and condensation in a crawl space is a recipe for disaster. Excess moisture leads to mold growth, wood rot, and foul odors, causing issues for your home’s health, indoor air quality, and your home’s value.
At Thrasher Foundation Repair, we specialize in preventing these problems with our patented crawl space dehumidifier and crawl space vent fan. As part of our complete crawl space encapsulation system, these products will ensure that your home has clean, dry air, and help protect your crawl space from mold and other damage.
Homes have never been completely airtight structures, and over the years, outside air is given more and more access through both the changes you’ve made and the natural decay of building products. This allows humid air to get into your crawl space, where it inevitably condenses and begins to cause problems.
Warm air rises and exits through upper windows and the roof, creating a vacuum in your home. In below grade spaces, this void is filled with humid air drawn into your crawls space from the outside. Once in your crawl space, this air condenses and leaves standing water before it works its way up and out of your home. Known as the stack effect, this process will worsen over time and create mold and wood rot in your crawl space while also hurting your energy efficiency.
Thrasher fixes these problems with our crawl space encapsulation system and crawl space dehumidifier. By sealing your crawl space vents off from the outside, we can create an environment that remains dry, clean, and healthy, as well as energy efficient.
