Crawl space foundations are found in many homes. Typically, these foundation types are equipped with operable vents designed to provide ventilation for moisture control. Unfortunately, venting a crawl space during air conditioning season allows for the migration of hot, humid outside air into the cooler environment inside the crawl space. Instead of drying the crawl space,ventilation actually increases the moisture load. Once present, moisture migrates to the colderfloor framing surfaces where the wood moisture content elevates to a point ideal for fungal growthand wood damage.
