Crawlspace Moisture Problems

Many homes built on crawl space foundations in the United States suffer from poor moisture management. Excess moisture is often noticed in the humid spring and summer seasons but can occur at any time of the year. Often, the heating and air conditioning contractor is the first person the residents call to deal with the problem. Typically though, the problem is not due to a failure of the air conditioning system; it results from poor moisture control in the crawl space.


Health Risks & Hazards:

Some of the common symptoms of a crawl space moisture problem are:
  • Mold or moisture damage in the crawl space or living area
  • Musty odors in the living area
  • Condensation (sweating) on air conditioning ductwork or equipment
  • Condensation on insulation, water pipes or truss plates in the crawl space
  • Buckled hardwood floors
  • High humidity in the living area
  • Insect infestations
  • Rot in wooden framing members
Advantages Of Unvented (Sealed) Crawl Spaces:
  • Stay dryer than vented crawl spaces
  • Protect pipes from freezing
  • Require less insulation than vented crawl spaces (since the area of the perimeter walls is less than the area of the crawl space ceiling)
  • Bring ducts within the conditioned envelope of the home - an improvement that usually results in energy savings compared to vented crawl spaces
  • Promotes better indoor air quality and moisture controls
