Many people think ventilated crawl spaces reduce moisture problems—not in Southwest Georgia! In fact, ventilated crawl spaces often increase the heat and humidity in your living spaces in warmer months because outside air can flow into the space beneath your home.
Think about it: when your crawl space has vents and it’s 90°F with 80% humidity outside, where will that warm, damp air go? Unfortunately, it can seep into your crawl space and create moisture problems until the humidity decreases. And where we live, it’s warm and humid most months out of the year.
Luckily, if you have a ventilated crawl space and are interested in preventing moisture issues, Harrell King can help! We can add vapor barriers to your crawl space in addition to sealing your vents to prevent outdoor air from sliding in.
