Dehumidification Services for Greater Atlanta Homeowners
Keep your home cool and comfortable while improving air quality and controlling moisture damage
Did you know your basement or crawl space can easily accumulate high humidity levels that cause problems throughout your home?
For starters, moisture saturates fluffy insulation like cellulose and fiberglass batts. That reduces their ability to resist the transfer of heat inside your home. As a result, your energy bills will go up too.
That moisture buildup can also lead to the growth of mold on wood, paper, and some kinds of paint. Not only does mold cause damage to these materials and possibly require you to replace them, but it also leads to potential health issues because of the spores that mold transmits throughout the air. If you notice musty odors or mold stains in your basement or crawl space, you likely have mold growth caused by excess moisture from humidity.
Mold can cause screws, nails, and sheet metal to rust and deteriorate. It can also cause wood to rot. And if that wood happens to be studs or joists, that could mean the structure of your home is at risk. In addition, termites, powder post beetles, and other insect pests love to take up residence and eat wood with high moisture.
If you notice musty smells or obvious mold growth, you have problems you can’t ignore

Save money and energy with a whole-home energy audit
Most HVAC contractors check your equipment to make sure it’s running efficiently and as intended. That’s good. But, it leaves out many important factors if that’s all you do.
At J.R. Bolton Services, we check your entire house for all the problems leading to excess moisture in your home. This could be lack of insulation, dirty ductwork, a poorly sealed air envelope, and malfunctioning equipment, or possibly many other causes.
