What is Relative Humidity?

Thursday, August 17th, 2017 by Nicole Valardi


If you are looking over our website, you may have seen the term relative humidity. But, do you really know what it means?

Relative Humidity refers how full of water the air is, in relation to how much water the air can hold at a given temperature. When the crawlspace air has more water or moisture than it can handle, the water is dropped on pipes, ducts, and wood.  This can lead to mold growth, dust mites, rot, rodents, termites, carpenter ants, and other pests. 

What’s even worse is that since warm air rises the humid rises out of the crawlspace and into your home; bringing the mold, spores and dust mites with it. This humid air coming into your home also makes it difficult to heat and cool your home.
