2. Smartvent Ventilation/Ventilation Control System
Whether crawlspace ventilation is necessary (or even detrimental) is a hotly debated topic among building scientists. Especially in humid climates, ventilating the crawlspace often adds undesirable moisture to the area. New products provide mechanical ventilation as that measure the moisture content of outdoor and crawlspace air and only provide ventilation when the outdoor air is drier than crawlspace air. Thus, systems prevent moisture from being added to the crawlspace due to ventilation.
