Improve the comfort and health of your home
When you hear the term "home energy audit" or "energy assessment," it makes sense to assume that the main focus of this service will be the building’s energy performance.
But a comprehensive energy audit should also focus on other aspects of Building Science, like indoor air quality and building durability. This is where dehumidification can be important.

The SaniDry Sedona offers giant performance in a small package. It's the world's most efficient, high-performance dehumidifier, without a bulky heat exchange core. The Sedona easily fits in small crawl spaces, yet has a powerful blower to effectively dry large crawl spaces. Mold and mildew are common in crawl spaces, but the Sedona keeps the relative humidity below 55%, so mold won't stand a chance. As a high-efficiency ENERGY STAR® certified dehumidifier, the Sedona removes more moisture (100 pints per day) for less electricity cost than conventional models.
The SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier drains automatically and has a humidity sensor that monitors the air, so once it's installed, there's nothing else to do. Your crawl space will be drier and healthier - and so will the rest of your home too!
Basements and crawl spaces are below-grade areas where high humidity levels can cause numerous problems. Moisture that saturates "fluffy" insulation like cellulose or fiberglass batts will dramatically diminish the insulation’s R-value and adversely affect energy efficiency. Moisture also helps to promote the growth of mold on organic materials like wood, paper and even some types of paint. Mold spreads by means of airborne spores. These microscopic organisms pose a serious health hazard. Musty odors and mold stains are telltale signs of excess moisture that is promoting mold growth.
Excess moisture can shorten the life of building components. Screws, sheet metal and other steel elements rust and deteriorate, while wood can succumb to rot, threatening the structural integrity of a building. Termites, powder post beetles, and other pests love wood with high moisture content.
Most energy experts will be able identify the need to dehumidify a basement or home in order to solve moisture problems. But Pipe Works Services, Inc. is the only full-service contractor with access to industry-leading moisture control and dehumidification systems, such as basement and crawl space dehumidifiers. Our expertise in basement waterproofing, crawl space sealing, and dehumidification enables us to deal with moisture problems like no other contractor can.
An effective moisture-control strategy in basements and crawl spaces is likely to incorporate air-sealing and insulation improvements in addition to dehumidification. This integrated strategy provides several benefits beyond moisture control: improved energy efficiency, healthier air quality, and a cleaner, better-looking space that improves your home’s curb appeal.
