AIR MOVEMENT IN CRAWL SPACES AND BASEMENTS
THE IMPORTANCE OF AIR MOVEMENT IN YOUR HOME
A key factor to consider when choosing a dehumidifier is the amount of air movement needed to distribute dry air throughout the entire crawl space or basement.
Most free-standing dehumidifiers tend to recirculate the air immediately surrounding them, creating a zone of warm, lower-relative-humidity. This often leads to a dehumidifier prematurely shutting down its cooling cycle and then starting up again a short time later — not only is this inefficient, but it delivers poor moisture removal.
