Crawl Space Fans
Every house is different, including its crawl space, so it’s essential to understand the different options available in order to make the best decision for your home. Keeping your crawl space dry and well-maintained is an important factor, and one viable option is to invest in a crawl space fan.
What is a Crawl Space Fan?
Crawl space fans are a box fan that sucks the air out of the crawl space and blows it outside. This is a great solution for homes that are in areas prone to consistently damp environments. A crawl space fan system creates proper ventilation, which reduces the moisture in the air.
What do Crawl Space Fans do?
Since your home shares up to 60% of its air with your crawl space, it’s important to keep it as dry as possible. Too much moisture can cause condensation, which can lead to mold, mildew, and wood rot; all of which can cause costly damage to your home. Crawl Space fans can also vent radon and keep any naturally occurring odor at bay.
Why Have a Professional Installation?
Having a crawl space fan properly installed the first time insures that it has a proper and consistent energy source, since it does need to get plugged in. It also makes sure that the crawl space fan’s space does not become an entry point for critters and bugs to find a way into your home.
