Way to much reading: So is it safe to say, many things should be considered and it may be a good idea for a perticular house but not a solve all problem solution for every house.

One situation does not fit all for certain.

If the grading and water management are good, conditioning the crawl is usually the better option.

That's my point. It may be a good option for some cases but there are to many things that could go wrong to make it a blanket statement without looking into the details of each house.

The homeowner has to know the pitfalls before making a big change to one most important systems in the house.

I will continue to argue with anyone that suggests it without asking 20 questions before giving that answer.
