Get Started

When it comes to moisture control in basements or crawlspaces, humidity is often more damaging than outright standing water. In fact, 70% humidity is all that is needed to begin the process of rot in floor joists or sheathing. When the home moisture control experts from Energeyes review your crawlspace, a dehumidifier may be recommended for long-term control.

Damp Crawlspaces Lead to Costly Damage

A majority of homes in our area have crawlspaces beneath their house structures. When moisture collects in a crawlspace, there are several consequences from excess moisture and high humidity. High humidity can affect your Cary, NC area home’s structural foundations through rot and by creating a beneficial environment for destructive pests. High humidity can soften and damage key structural components that are exposed. Pests need water to survive and a damp environment under your home can be an attractive location for the following pests:

  • termites

  • carpenter ants

  • various destructive beetles

  • grain weevils

  • mice and rats

Moist Basements & Crawlspaces Affect Your Health Too!

Because of a natural stack effect in structures, air from your basement may seep upward into your living areas, much like the smoke rises in a chimney. High humidity environments under your home’s living areas can make your family sick in three different ways:

  • Dust mites thrive in a moist environment but die when humidity drops below 50%. These dust mites can cause allergies, make asthma worse and cause itchy skin reactions.

  • Mold also thrives in a moist environment and can cause general symptoms of illness, including coughs, fatigue and body aches.

  • Formaldehyde is present in many home products. High humidity can increase formaldehyde and other volatile compounds off-gassing in your home.

Dehumidifiers Protect Your Home

In our area, dehumidifiers are a smart solution to protect your home and health. The home performance experts at Energeyes like the features and flexibility of Santa Fe dehumidifiers for continuous operation in your crawlspace. Santa Fe dehumidifiers are ENERGY STAR rated for their top energy efficiency and water removal from the air. According to the manufacturer, larger dehumidifiers tend to be more effective in maintaining a low humidity level.

Dehumidifier Installation for Moisture Control

Once the Energeyes home performance expert has reviewed your crawlspace or basement, a recommendation for a humidifier may form one part of a remediation strategy. The dehumidifier is generally hung from a wall or floor joist with a separate electrical circuit and a hose connected to a drain pipe. Dehumidifiers are often installed along with other remedies, including:
