Humidity and Crawlspaces Don’t Mix Well
Here in Georgia it’s hot and humid, and if you leave your crawlspace vents open you are letting all of the humidity under the house.
Yes, I know you’ve heard the vents are supposed to be open, and your bug man may have told you otherwise, but the truth is you only want dry air circulating under the house, not wet air.
When you leave the vents open, you’re letting in the wet air. This is the reason we encapsulate — or seal — crawlspaces. It keeps the humidity outside where it belongs. Tons of independent research is online.
