Condensation Problems? You May Need a Crawlspace or Basement Dehumidifier

You may not know it, but your home could have dangerous levels of excess moisture seeping up from your basement or crawlspace. What does this mean to you, and why should you consider a crawlspace or basement dehumidifier from Terminix®?

  • Wet crawlspaces contribute to the cupping of wood floors and the deterioration of floor joists, beams, sub-flooring, insulation and electrical mechanical systems.
  • Excess moisture from basements and crawlspaces encourages fungus growth on the wood and on any other organic material that present in those spaces.
  • Crawlspaces are a major source of air infiltration that permeates up into the living area, transmitting odors, saturating structures, and creating an environment conducive to mildew and dust mite infestation.

Dehumidification Solutions from Terminix®

Terminix offers one of the most advanced Dehumidification systems available today, featuring Dew Point Control. These units are made exclusively for Terminix based upon our years of experience controlling moisture in crawl spaces. Our Dehumidification System will help maintain the structural integrity of your home, inhibit fungus growth and improve indoor air quality.

Moisture in the air is controlled based on the dew point temperature* of the crawl space, which is the most efficient moisture control method. Conversely, dehumidifiers that control moisture based on relative humidity (RH) will run significantly more than is necessary to properly treat the air.

The Terminix Dehumidifier installs quickly, operates quietly and gives you cleaner air, improved circulation, reduces dust and allergens and there is less chance of fungus growth and pest infestations. Our Dehumidification System is also a great value as it is Energy Star certified.

*The dew point temperature is the temperature at which the air can no longer "hold" all the water vapor which is mixed with it, and some of the water vapor must condense into liquid water. While relative humidity is ( as its name suggests) a relative measure of how humid the air is, the dew point temperature is an absolute measure of how much water vapor is in the air.
