Basement Authority of West Virginia has over 20 years of expertise in providing reliable crawl space solutions. We integrate the AquaStop™ crawl space dehumidifier into our crawl space encapsulation process to manage moisture and prevent its effects.

This page explains the benefits of crawl space dehumidifier installation, how it improves your home’s comfort, and why it’s a wise investment for West Virginia homeowners.

What is a Crawl Space Dehumidifier?

A crawl space dehumidifier removes excess moisture from the air beneath your home. It has a high capacity, removing up to 100 pints of water daily. Crawl space dehumidifiers are integral components of our larger whole-home health strategy. 

Elevated crawl space humidity leads to damage like mold and poor indoor air quality. By reducing this moisture, a crawl space dehumidifier prevents these occurrences and creates a healthier home environment.

When paired with our proprietary encapsulation solutions and over 20 years of expertise, our dehumidifier installation ensures your crawl space and home remain structurally sound, healthy, and dry. 

Signs You Need a Crawl Space Dehumidifier 

Your home may benefit from a crawl space dehumidifier if you notice the following:

Living in West Virginia’s humid climate means crawl spaces are suceptible to moisture. The signs above indicate excessive crawl space moisture or drainage problems that demand immediate attention. Early detection and a prompt professional crawl space inspection are essential to prevent damage from worsening.

Is a Crawl Space Dehumidifier Necessary?

Yes, a crawl space dehumidifier is essential to your home and family’s well-being. Without one, humidity continues damaging your home’s structure, indoor air quality, and comfort, leading to costly repairs. Installing a dehumidifier halts current damage and protects against future issues. 

While trying a DIY approach with an ordinary dehumidifier may be tempting, we do not recommend it for crawl spaces. Standard consumer dehumidifiers lack the power and capacity to handle the large size and high humidity levels of most crawl spaces. If installed in a crawl space, these units would run nonstop without effectively dehumidifying the area, requiring constant water tank emptying.

    Yes. Dehumidifiers provide all kinds of benefits for your crawl space and the entire home. We’ve already listed the major ones like protecting against wood rot, high energy bills, and mold. However, it offers even more benefits like preventing a sagging floor or making your crawl space unattractive to pests. Many animals are drawn to humid environments for their warmth, and crawl spaces provide cover against storms and predators. Dehumidifiers make the space less welcoming for these uninvited guests.
