Crawl space humidity creates the perfect breeding ground for mold, mildew and other problems. And as the humidity rises, it damages your home resulting in wet crawl space insulation, wood rot and high electric bills.

Why Are Open Crawl Space Vents a Problem?
There’s been a lot of debate about the value of venting your crawl space. The original idea behind crawl space venting was that the air flow would keep your home dry. However, we now know that this isn’t true.
Open Crawl Space Vents & MoistureCrawl space vents let moisture into your crawl space, and crawl space moisture creates problems throughout the rest of your home.
Stack EffectThe crawl space moisture is carried through your home with the air cycle, which is also called the “Stack Effect”. The warm air in your home rises, creating suction that pulls the cool air in your crawl space up into the rest of your home. So, the humid air in your crawl space is being cycled through your home.

Can’t I Just Close the Crawl Space Vents?
If the crawl space vents aren’t air tight then you’re not solving the problem. Closing the crawl space vents will not solve the humidity created by other sources. If the crawl space humidity is left alone, then it’ll create other problems like rotted floor joists, mold growth and a musty crawl space.
