Summer is over, I don't need to worry about my crawl space anymore, right?

As a North Carolina homeowner, you may have fallen victim to moisture buildup in the crawl space.


Condensation is what happens when hot air hits a cold surface, commonly seen on windows. What does this look like in the crawl space?


Condensation in the crawl space looks like hanging insulation, sweating ductwork, damage to your floor joists, and buckled floors.

Now, what is causing this moisture build-up in the crawl space? The answer is the crawl spaces' wall vents. (https://www.advancedenergy.org/2017/06/13/taking-the-vents-out-of-vented-crawl-spaces/).


In the past, the solution was to add more ventilation. Advanced Energy discovered outside air does not dry out the crawl space but in fact, adds more moisture to the area.


Now, why should I care about what's going on in my crawl space if I don't have to see it?


Inevitably, what's going on under your home will make its way up into your home. Some of the most common forms of this are buckled floors, allergies, and asthma attacks. What may surprise you the most is that 50% of the air you breathe in your home was once in your crawl space.
