First and foremost thanks ahead of time for everyone's help :)
I am in the process of finishing my basement and had some questions/concerns about "what to do with the air" in my crawlspace. In my basement I have access to a conditioned crawlspace:
- No venting to the outside
- Cemented floor
- Insulation (where insulation can be used)
- Spray foam (where foam could be used)
I added a picture which shows a top level view of my basement. (Note: the drywall is not up yet but will be as soon as I figure this out).
The idea is I want to drywall the opening to my crawlspace and have one door which acts as the only entry point.
The crawlspace is fully conditioned and has an HVAC duct running through it which feeds other areas in the home. My question is what do I do with the airflow in this crawlspace?
- Do I add a small vent from my HVAC duct to supply air from the HVAC system to the crawlspace?
- Should I add a dehumidifier to be safe?
- Where I am putting my drywall up to block off the crawspace should I add vent holes or anything?
- Does the crawlspace need a return?
- My crawlspace is ~1500sqft
- Its located in Virginia
- It has a interior french drain/sump pump installed (if that makes any difference)
Thanks everyone - I am by no means a professional so apologies if my terminology is off or incorrect.
