The health of your basement is important for your own health. Much of the air that comes from basements circulates through the rest of your home. If that air is not high quality, you’re not getting the air you need. You can develop all kinds of lung issues from poor basement ventilation in your home. Avoid health care costs and improve the basement ventilation in your Northern Virginia home with Foundation Medix.
A basement is susceptible to leaking water and moisture, especially as your foundation shifts, settles, and ages. Any moisture that finds its way into your home will rise throughout the rest of the structure by the “stack effect.” No building is totally sealed, so there’s bound to be air coming in from somewhere. In the heating season, warmer air rises, escaping through the upper levels. This rising air reduces the pressure in the base of the building, which draws in more cold air through the previously mentioned openings. This process is reversed during the cooling season but has a similar effect.
Foundation Medix installs EZ Breathe (basement) ventilation devices in order to solve this problem. The EZ Breathe system filters basement air, disposes of moisture from the outside air, removes mold spores, and eliminates odors. Not only does this device protect your basement from moisture problems, it also requires zero maintenance after installation. The only difference is an increase to the electric bill by only $2 – $4 per month. That’s a small price to pay to protect your lungs.
We also offer EZ Breathe devices for garages and crawl spaces to ensure your home stays safe and breathable for years to come. Our crews are available in Alexandria, Fredericksburg, Manassas, Charlottesville, Fairfax, and throughout Northern Virginia.
