Why Install an Air-Drying System in Your Crawl Space?

The Tidewater area is considered a mild-humid climate. If summer’s hot, humid air enters the crawl space, it may cause many problems such as mold, fungus, mildew and wood rot. Not only does this cause damage to your home, but it also allows harmful air to enter your home. Did you know most of the make-up air in a home comes directly from the (possibly moldy) environment of the crawl space?

How Do Air-Drying Systems Work?

Our crawl space air-drying systems are designed to prevent mold and fungus from growing by pulling moisture out of wood and insulation to maintain safe moisture levels in your home. Next, exhaust fans and vent covers create negative pressure to prevent crawl space air from entering the home by exhausting to the outside. In addition, vent covers inhibit the hot, humid air known to the Tidewater area from freely flowing into the crawl space.

The 4 Benefits of Installing an Air-Drying System

Need more reasons to install an air-drying system in your Virginia home?

  1. Energy Efficiency – Our energy-efficient air-drying system can help you reduce your HVAC expenses. By preventing hot and cold air from freely flowing into your crawl space from outdoors, our air-drying systems keep the subfloor cooler/warmer in your home.
  2. Reducing Monthly Costs – On average, the system keeps the crawl space cooler in the summer months. This will enable the HVAC system to run less, thereby reducing energy consumption of the home.
  3. Sustainable Energy – Our system is also in line with green standards. Our air-drying systems use specially engineered air movers that produce high CFM and static airflow to pull moisture out of wood and insulation at a low power usage. The entire system runs on less than 2 amps!
  4. Simplicity – Our air-drying system is simple to install and maintenance-free. The average system can be installed easily and requires only simple outlets installed in the crawl space running to a GFI outlet and on/off switch.

Other Insulation Services

At Tidewater Insulators, we offer many different services to help insulate your home. Here are some of our other different services:

Air Sealing

Air sealing is critical in all homes, especially older homes, since they have holes in them. Whether they’re large or small, those holes can lead to a big problem. Every wall outlet, light switch, duct vent, ceiling light or fan, plumbing pipe, or bath fan could be a place where air is escaping from your home.

If you notice any cold drafts that are difficult to find, hard-to-heat rooms, excessive dust or musty odors, there is most likely a hole that needs to be sealed.

Removing, Replacing & Installing New Installation

Do you need to remove old insulation from your walls, attic or crawl space? Not every company can remove old installation to replace with new insulation, but we are the company that can do it! Removing the old insulation is critical to re-insulation or retrofitting. We offer both residential and commercial insulation removal services.

Crawl Space Insulation

Insulating your crawl space is an important factor in the overall comfort and energy efficiency of your home. For an area so small, a crawl space offers huge energy savings if properly insulated. If your home isn’t well insulated and properly vented, moisture from the ground can cause a lot of water damage and other problems that are a pain to deal with and can be pretty expensive to fix.
