Is your home free from mold? Is your basement free from moisture problems? Before you answer these questions, you should note that the Concrete Foundations Association (CFA) has been quoted stating that more than 80% of the homes in North America have basement moisture problems.
Your home could very easily be in this category. You may already have a toxic mold problem that you need to deal with. It’s a good idea to have your home inspected to be sure.
Technology for a Safer Household
When many homeowners are faced with the prospect of dealing with a moist or humid basement, they will react by having a dehumidifier installed in their basement or crawl space. However, this may not be adequate in dealing with all the issues concerning indoor air quality.
According to the American Lung Association (ALA) and the Environment Protection Agency (EPA), indoor air quality is much lower than that of the outside environment. A dehumidifier does nothing to improve this. It simply circulates polluted outdoor air in the indoor space and then releases it back to the same space. It is no wonder incidences of allergies and respiratory conditions such as asthma have risen in the past few years.
There is also the problem of emptying buckets of water as a result of using the dehumidifier. There are some people who ignore or forget to empty these tanks and end up with contaminated stagnant water on their property.
EZ Breathe to the Rescue
Advances in technology have made it possible to have a better solution to controlling indoor humidity levels while also improving indoor air quality. The EZ breathe ventilation system works to remove stale, humid and polluted air out of the basement or crawl space to the outside. Dry air from other levels in the home is pulled into the basement because of the vacuum created.
This system allows the air in the home to fully circulate. This is unlike a dehumidifier which only circulates the air present in the space within which it has been installed.
Investing in this system will help you reduce humidity levels and eliminate the development of respiratory problems in your home. In addition to this, operating the system is more affordable than operating a dehumidifier. The average home spends about $2 every month in utility expenses towards the operation of this system. You also can forget about having to deal with messy water buckets.
