Many green builders and environmentally conscious types agree that encapsulating crawl spaces is preferable to venting to the outdoors. Some choices home builders have when dealing with the crawl space are: venting it to the outside, using air from the HVAC system, exhausting the air to the outdoors, and using a dehumidifier.

Encapsulating the crawl space and installing a dehumidifier may actually be the most efficient choice. It is the most expensive choice in most instances, but that cost can be offset. You want it dry down there. There are certainly risks and associated costs with excessive moisture. Dehumidifiers are the superior choice in that regard.
