About E-Z Breathe
A recent study indicated that foundation walls absorb 10-15 gallons of water vapor per day. This is responsible for up to 80% of the home’s indoor moisture, and can accelerate the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew as well as create allergies/asthma, attract bugs, spiders and pests.
E-Z Breathe Ventilation Systems combat this by providing a path of escape for the dirty, damp, basement air. While the system installed in a basement or crawl space, the entire home will benefit from the increased air exchanges, creating a cleaner, healthier living environment you can see and feel!
Answers to other questions you might have
What are the maintenance requirements and energy efficiency of the E-Z Breathe system?
The E-Z Breathe system is a maintenance-free unit, eliminating the need for heavy buckets to empty or costly filters to replace. It is designed to be quiet and unobtrusive, fitting easily into any room in the house. In terms of energy efficiency, the system requires very little power and costs only $2.00 to $3.00 a month in electricity, making it an energy-efficient choice for home ventilation.
How does the E-Z Breathe system control humidity levels in the basement?
The E-Z Breathe system controls humidity levels in the basement by removing excess moisture from the air. This helps to prevent the growth of mold, which thrives in damp environments. By maintaining a moisture-free environment, the system contributes to a healthier and mold-free basement.
How does the E-Z Breathe system combat the “stack effect” in the home’s HVAC system?
The E-Z Breathe system combats the “stack effect” in the home’s HVAC system by creating a path for dirty and humid basement air to escape. It pulls in clean air from the upper levels of the home to replace it. This helps to balance the airflow and prevent the accumulation of stagnant air in the basement.
How does the E-Z Breathe ventilation system support recommendations from reputable organizations?
The E-Z Breathe ventilation system supports both the EPA and the American Lung Association recommendations to use a ventilation system to reduce indoor air pollution. These reputable organizations recognize the importance of proper ventilation for maintaining good air quality in homes.
Will the E-Z Breathe work in my crawlspace?
Yes. A 2005 study found that in most homes with crawl spaces, up to 50 percent of the air in the home had at one time been in the crawlspace via leakage. This moist damp air can buckle hardwood floors, create fertile ground for mold growth (an asthma trigger), attract pests and termites and can even cost more in terms of energy consumption. According to one recent study, crawl spaces open to the outside are “moisture traps”. The E·Z Breathe® ventilation system provides airflow from the conditioned portion of the home and is specifically designed to exhaust and remove damp, moist, damaging air from crawlspaces.
What potential hazards can a basement ventilation system remove from the air?
A basement ventilation system, specifically the E-Z Breathe system, can remove potentially hazardous materials floating in the air of the basement. This includes excess moisture, molds, toxins, allergies, and poor air quality, ensuring a safe and healthy home environment.
Can the EZ Breath system be used in both finished and unfinished basements?
Yes, the EZ Breath system can be used in both finished and unfinished basements. It is designed to provide clean air to any type of basement, whether it is a finished living space or an unfinished storage area.
How does the EZ Breath system improve air quality in the basement?
The EZ Breath system improves air quality in the basement by pulling in clean air from the upper levels of the home. By replacing the dirty and humid basement air with fresh air, the system helps remove contaminants and improve overall air quality in the basement.
How does the EZ Breath system prevent the growth of mold in the basement?
The EZ Breath system prevents the growth of mold in the basement by controlling humidity levels. By removing the dirty and humid air from the basement and replacing it with clean air, the system helps prevent the accumulation of moisture that is favorable for mold growth.
How does the EZ Breath system control humidity levels in the basement?
The EZ Breath system controls humidity levels in the basement by combating the “stack effect” in the home’s HVAC system. It creates a path for dirty and humid basement air to escape, pulling in clean air from the upper levels of the home to replace it. This helps prevent the accumulation of moisture that can lead to mold growth.
