MYTH BUSTER! Open crawl space vents are a HORRIBLE practice for your home. Your crawl space does NOT need to ‘breathe’. Opening your crawl space vents allows air from outside to meet the stale, often cold air from your crawl space which creates condensation. Additionally, through a process called the ‘stack effect‘, the air from your crawl space travels and cycles through your home. Meaning, if your crawl space is ridden with moisture, condensation, and dampness, it’s that same air that’s carried throughout your home that your family breathes. Stop the madness! Seal your crawl space and keep the air in your home safe!
