Humidity & Your Home
When air enters your home through the lower levels – like your basement or crawl space, it will move up and through the home before it exits through your attic area. Your basement and crawl space are naturally much cooler areas in your home since they’re surrounded by soil. They have a fairly constant temperature throughout each season of the year, so any air that enters through this area of your home will be cooled as well.
When it’s a relatively warm day with high humidity levels, the air will move through your crawl space or basement and since the temperature is cooler, the relative humidity will go up. High levels of humidity in this area underneath your home can lead to the development of mold and bacteria which could cause a lot of problems for your family’s well-being
