Crawl Space Dehumidifiers

 

Too much humidity in your crawl space can create a variety of expensive problems. Dehumidifiers are an easy way to reduce the humidity down to a safe level. How much humidity is considered safe? Experts recommend a level of 30%-50%. Anything above 50% will trigger problems.

Why Is Dehumidifying Your Crawl Space Important?

Excess humidity impacts the air quality of your home, causing respiratory issues for you and your family. Humidity is an ideal breeding ground for mold and mildew, and the spores can easily rise to the upper areas of your home. Dust mites also thrive in humid conditions, which can trigger eczema and asthma. Humidity also causes structural damage to your home as the dampness produces wood rot.

Crawl Space Dehumidifiers in the South

While homeowners in dryer parts of the country can use dehumidifiers on their own, homeowners in the South will find that dehumidifiers just can’t keep up with naturally high humidity, especially in the summer. Sealing the crawlspace with a moisture barrier or encapsulation creates a barricade to eliminate excess moisture from crawl spaces. But you still need to keep the air flowing — that’s where dehumidifiers come in.

The Top 4 Benefits of a Crawl Space Dehumidifier

Dehumidifiers have several benefits that make them worth considering. Here are the top four that our customers enjoy.

  1. Better Health — Mold spores and dust mites are allergens that can cause respiratory problems, headaches, and eye discomfort. For those who have a sensitivity or an allergy, these problems are worse. Combined with encapsulation, dehumidifiers remove these issues.
  2. Home Repair Savings — When wood sits in humidity over 70%, condensation seeps into the wood and slowly rots it. Over time, wood begins to disintegrate. Structural damage is expensive to remediate, and a dehumidifier will make sure you won’t have to.
  3. Improved Comfort — Humidity quickly rises to the upper levels of the home where you and your family live. Even if you crank up the air conditioning, high humidity levels in the home will feel uncomfortable. A dehumidifier lowers the humidity to a comfortable level.
  4. Energy Efficiency — When you combat high humidity levels in your home with air conditioning, your energy bill rises. Dehumidifiers will lower your energy costs, saving you money each month.

 

What Type of Dehumidifier Do You Need?

There are different sizes of dehumidifiers, designed to handle both small and large crawl spaces — and sizes in between. You can also get a variety of features in dehumidifiers. We start with a full inspection and make recommendations based on the size of your crawl space and moisture problem. We’ll share all of your options and give you the pros and cons of each.

High humidity isn’t something to allow to fester. The longer the negative effects of humidity continue, the worse the damage will be, both to your family’s health and to your home.

They are very good at what they do!. I moved into an older mobile home that had a bad roach problem. Contacted Putman they came right out. I have noticed a huge reduction in the roaches after just 1 visit. Signed up for the quarterly pest control, they came out free of charge before my next scheduled visit to treat again. I have no doubt my problem will soon be completely eliminated. (note: the previous tenants did nothing as far as pest control so it was a problem) The prices are very reasonable and the technician that comes out is beyond friendly and professional. He is also very knowledgeable and explained the whole process to me. Im glad I chose Putman and highly recommend them if you are in need of pest control services. They also treat the outside of the house. Thanks for your hard work!

Putman Peat Management has been providing service for us at 2 different houses over the last year 1/2. They have done a variety of projects for us from an initial termite/pest inspection to annual reinspections and installing new crawl space liner and vents. They were professional as well as personable in their service and reasonable in the coat of their work. Very happy to continue working with them.

When I bought my house, it hadn't been lived in for 3 years so the bugs had made it their home. Putman went above and beyond to make sure they all went away.Recently I had an issue with mice, and not only did they come out to take care of them, they came back out to remove the dead mouse under my house.Love this company, especially since it is local!

Professional, prompt service. Marty and Richard are courteous, friendly and knowledgeable! After treating our home initially, Richard called us every year around our anniversary date to schedule an annual maintenance check, without our having to keep up with it. He arrived on time, inspected the entire crawl space thoroughly and even alerted us to small non-pest-related maintenance issues (insulation which needing tacking back up, etc.) We appreciate Putman's excellent service and commitment to keeping our home safe from pests and other problems. Call them before getting quotes from anyone else. They are top-notch.
