Crawl Space Dehumidifier
Persistent dampness, high humidity, mold growth, and musty odors are common issues that plague crawl spaces and endanger your home and family. The good news is that they can be prevented.
Basement Authority of West Virginia has the expertise and reliable solutions to tackle these issues head-on. Our AquaStop™ Crawl Space Air System, integrated within our crawl space encapsulation process, effectively controls moisture and prevents its adverse effects.
By reading this page, you’ll learn about the benefits of our crawl space dehumidifier, how it can improve your home, and why it’s a wise investment for homes throughout West Virginia.
What is the AquaStop™ Crawl Space Air System?
The AquaStop™ Crawl Space Air System isn’t just a dehumidifier; it’s a comprehensive moisture management solution that cleans and filters the air, controls humidity, eliminates odors, and discourages mold growth.
Tailored specifically for the unique demands of crawl spaces, it stands out for its high-capacity performance, removing up to 100 pints of water per day. By maintaining a dry environment, it curtails the risk of mold, structural damage, and infestations.
But this dehumidifier is more than just a standalone unit. It’s an integral component of a larger whole-home health strategy.
Crawl space repair often reveals the need for a holistic approach to moisture control, which includes sealing vents, installing sump pumps, and complete encapsulation with a vapor barrier. When paired with these methods, this revolutionary air system ensures that your crawl space and home remain structurally sound, healthy, and dry.
Signs You Need a Crawl Space Dehumidifier
Some common signs that a crawl space dehumidifier could help your home include:
- Mold growth
- Musty odors
- Pest infestations
- Higher than usual energy bills
- Rotting wooden supports
- Sagging floors that feel bouncy and uneven
- Condensation on pipes and ductwork
- Persistent allergies or illnesses
These issues indicate your crawl space suffers from excessive moisture or drainage problems requiring immediate attention. Early detection and quick expert assistance are essential to averting more serious concerns.
Living in the humid climate of West Virginia means crawl spaces easily fall victim to dampness. Noticeable humidity levels paired with musty smells or sightings of mold growth are clear signs a dehumidifier is needed to control moisture before it escalates into wood rot or pest infestations. And in our region prone to heavy rains and flooding, water intrusion can quickly damage floor stability and home structural integrity if left unchecked.
Is a Crawl Space Dehumidifier Necessary?
Yes, a crawl space dehumidifier is essential to your home and family’s well-being.
Without a dehumidifier, humidity will continue to damage your home’s structure, 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 don’t advise it for crawl space moisture problems. Typical consumer dehumidifiers lack the power and capacity to properly handle the large size and high humidity levels found in most crawl spaces. You’d need to constantly empty the tank since the unit would run nonstop, yet not dehumidify properly.
For the best results, trust Basement Authority of West Virginia’s professional crawl space dehumidification system. Our crawl space solutions address current moisture issues and prevent future problems to keep your West Virginia home dry and comfortable through every season’s humidity and rain.
