Since a crawl space is completely exposed to the ground, it is extremely susceptible to collecting moisture and water. An average home’s foundation walls absorb as much as 10-15 gallons of water vapor each day. Moisture will rise throughout the rest of your home by “Stack Effect,” causing problems such as musty odors, rot, and an increase in mold growth. It is logical to address the problem directly through filtering or replacing the crawl space air.
Foundation Medix installs a crawl space EZ Breathe (Crawl Space) ventilation device, which removes the moist crawl space air and replaces it with fresh air from the upper floors of the house. This device removes mold spores, musty odors, gallons of water vapor, and other dangerous particles from your home. The EZ Breathe (Crawl Space) does not require relatively any maintenance after installation and increases the electric bill by only $2 – $4 per month. We also offer EZ Breathe devices for garages and basements.
