Having a closed crawl space in your home is vital to maintaining an energy efficient home. It protects your home from moisture and the accompanying problems, including:

  • Humid living areas
  • Buckling hardwood
  • Condensation in pipes, air conditioning or insulation
  • Musty odors

Furthermore, upwards of 60% of the air in your home on the ground floor comes from the crawl space. Sealing the crawl space in your home will help prevent you from breathing in moldy, dusty, contaminated air.

What’s Going On In Your Crawl Space?

Your Durham home’s crawl space is the only thing between you and the damp soil below. The excessive moisture found in that soil can often lead to serious issues within the building. Some of those issues can include:

  • Mold, mildew and bacteria growth
  • Moisture damage in crawl space or living area
  • Insect infestations
  • Wood rot and buckling hardwood floors
  • Poor or unhealthy air quality in the home

Correcting The Humidity Problem In Your Crawl Space

It used to be that the most common way to address excessive humidity in a crawl space was through ventilation to the outside. While this can be a viable solution in drier climates, the relatively high humidity in North Carolina offers little relief.

At One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning, we use the latest in technology to reduce moisture in your crawl space.

Sealed Crawl Spaces & Encapsulation

Encapsulation is a method that completely seals your crawl space to keep the moisture out. It also helps to keep polluted air from getting indoors, eliminates odors, preserves the structural integrity of your home, and prevents insect and rodent infestation. A sealed crawl space is also a great way to conserve energy and therefore will save you money on your utility bills.

Vapor Barriers

Installing a vapor barrier in your crawl space is an effective way to stop or slow down the evaporation of ground moisture into the air of the crawl space. The addition of a vapor barrier will reduce the risk of structural damage and health issues within your home.


It is not uncommon to find crawl spaces that are so humid that puddles, muddy soil or other signs of standing water can be found in them. When this occurs, a drainage solution must be implemented to help keep the area dry. A professionally installed drainage system will efficiently expelled from your crawl space any water that accumulates. Doing so will ultimately assist your air conditioning and heating systems to perform more efficiently, increasing your home or business’ energy efficiency and lowering your energy costs.
