A Crawl Space Dehumidifier Can Help Protect Your Atlanta, GA, Home from Dangerous Moisture Levels
Having a professional install a crawl space dehumidifier in your Atlanta, Georgia, home can help reduce moisture and protect your property from structural problems. Engineered Solutions of Georgia offers numerous waterproofing methods in order to protect homes like yours.
There are several different ways humidity can enter your crawlspace. For instance, moisture can evaporate from the ground and enter your property. Standing water near your home can also seep into your crawlspace. Additionally, when outside air – which can be especially humid during wet Georgia summers – enters your crawl space, it can result in increased moisture levels.
If you’re unsure whether your Atlanta property would benefit from a crawl space dehumidifier, consider whether you’ve noticed any of the following:
- Increased electric bills, despite no noticeable changes in your energy use
- Warped floors
- Musty, mildew odors coming from your crawl space
Having a crawl space with excess moisture can also cause the rest of your home to experience poor air quality due to the wet air rising and entering your residence; increased pests, since many of them prefer warm and humid climates; and a compromised foundation.
