Crawl Space/Basement Dehumidifier Sales and Installation
The studies don’t lie; 40%-60% of the air you breathe in your home comes from underneath you. Whether you are built on a crawl space or basement, yourself as well as your home will benefit from having clean, dry air. For this reason a dehumidifier is a great choice to dry out that air below you, reduce allergens, reduce the chance for mold/fungal growth, and make sure the structural integrity of your biggest investment is where it is supposed to be.
But wait! Can’t I just go to any Walmart/Lowes and buy a dehumidifier? That’s a great question and a quick google search will show you that not all dehumidifiers are created equal. The benefits of a commercial grade dehumidifier are worth every penny.
Here at Advanced Ventilation Solutions we utilize the Santa Fe or Aprilaire brand of dehumidifiers which in our eyes are the Cadillac’s of dehumidifiers. These units are built to last with performance in mind. This is why they are able to operate in the colder temperature ranges that other dehumidifiers cannot do. They both offer a full warranty on all of their products. All of these units are energy star certified and are designed specifically for crawl spaces and basements.
High Moisture levels in basements/crawl spaces can lead to:
- Increased chance of mold/fungal growth
- Musty odors that are a result of mold
- Structural rot issues of you home/business
- Poor indoor air quality
- Thriving environment for insects to include infestation and colonization
If you have had issues in your crawl space or basement such as wood rot, foul odors, mold growth, or termite damage, contact us at Advanced Ventilation Solutions today for an evaluation and estimate. Often times we can provide and install a dehumidifier all while being more cost effective than a homeowner could on his/her own, saving valuable time and money!
