Crawl Space Vents
Unless you're a meteorologist and can actively monitor humidity levels, keep your crawl space vents open during the winter. If temperatures drop below 25 degrees for an extended period, the vents may be closed to prevent freezing issues but should be opened once temperatures rise. The only exception is if your crawl space is encapsulated with a dehumidifier installed and then the vents are always keep closed.
