Basement Dehumidifier Installation

Protect Your Home from the Dangers of Mold & Mildew

If the air in your crawl space or basement is saturated with moisture, your local Ram Jack consultant might recommend installing a dehumidifier. Excess moisture in your basement or crawl space can be a breeding ground for mold and mildew.

A dehumidifier is a special piece of equipment that pulls humidity from a basement or crawlspace by forcing air circulation. Air is pushed over frigid coils inside the dehumidifier, which extracts moisture. When the air is released from the device, it is much drier than before. As a dehumidifier continues to operate and circulate air in a single space, like your basement or crawlspace, it gets more efficient.

An effective dehumidifier will help with:

  • Mold growth: Any space with little circulation and a humidity level over 50%, is at high risk of mold growth. Using a dehumidifier makes the enclosed environment in your basement or crawlspace resistant to mold and mildew growth.

  • Foul odors: As stagnant air is dried and circulated with a dehumidifier, it can begin to smell fresher. Eliminating mold helps to remove the bad smell associated with it.

  • Health concerns: Mold can circulate airborne spores throughout your home. People with allergic reactions to the spores or weakened immune systems can become seriously ill. Dehumidifiers can create a healthier environment by improving the air quality inside your home.

Ram Jack offers many types and sizes of dehumidifiers. Various factors like the size of the space, the predictable weather conditions of your area, and the known allergies of your family will be considered in our recommendation. Ram Jack and our waterproofing professionals would be happy to inspect your crawlspace or basement to help you select the best option. We can even install a self-sustaining dehumidifier that requires little maintenance to continually run throughout the year!
