Why Do I Have High Indoor Humidity?
High indoor humidity is caused by crawl space humidity. Crawl space humidity is caused by a vented crawl space, dirt crawl space and wet weather.
Vented Crawl Space:
A vented crawl space lets in outside moisture. When you vent your crawl space on a humid day, it pulls in moisture. And when you vent your crawl space on a hot day, humidity forms. Crawl space humidity forms with the warm outside air combines with the cool crawl space air.
Dirt Crawl Space:
Dirt likes to hold onto moisture. As the dirt floor in your crawl space dries, the moisture is released into the air, creating crawl space humidity.
Rain is great for your garden but not for your crawl space. Moisture seeps into an unsealed crawl space through loose access doors, vents and foundation cracks.

Why Fix My High Indoor Humidity?
All of the air in your home is circulated through your crawl space. Your crawl space is, on average, much cooler than the outside air and the air in your home. As you know, warm air rises – this is why your attic and second story are always warmer than the rest of your home.
"High crawl space humidity can increase your electric bill 15-25%."As the warm air rises it creates a vacuum, pulling up the cooler air from your crawl space. This is also known as the Stack Effect. So, that wet air in your crawl space is being cycled through the living areas in your home. As the crawl space humidity rises, it creates high indoor humidity and other problems like wood rot, mold, bug infestations and high electric bills.
