The main purpose of a crawl space is to promote air circulation through the home and also to allow easy access to plumbing, electrical and similar maintenance, repair and installation appliances.
Houses that are built over a crawl space often suffer from moisture related issues due to the crawl space’s surroundings. Naturally, when moisture mixes with wood it creates all sorts of problems that come along with it, which often lead to the deterioration of a house.
Some of the issues you’ll deal with in a crawl space are obvious, like your air-conditioning or heating units’ malfunction problems that you’ll often observe in your house. In the summer, you can find it very difficult to cool the house because the humidity is very high in the crawl space, it is flowing up through the house and making it for your HVAC unit not to function properly. In the winter, you will find the floor too cold, and your tile floor or even hardwood floor is particularly very cold. Even though the humidity is lower in the winter, you will still have efficiency issues if the crawl space is not sealed and insulated properly.
The best solution to avoid indoor moisture issues is crawl space encapsulation since this barrier and dehumidifier combination protects the crawl space from excess moisture and its related problems.
