If your house has a crawl space or a basement, then you are already relatively familiar with the smell and mold that can accumulate due to poor ventilation. Homes with excess moisture and not enough ventilation can become a breeding ground for mold, dust mites and other insects. These odors, molds and other pollutants can thrive and accumulate there and then easily flow into living quarters upstairs, polluting the home. This can lead to Sick Home Syndrome…which is characterized by respiratory ailments, asthma and headaches.
The easiest way to deal with this problem is to attack the problem at it’s source: lack of ventilation. Using dehumidifiers can be costly to buy & run, plus require a ton of maintenance. Also, while they do dry out the air, they don’t ventilate… so you still have trapped toxins, pollutants and stale air in your basement/crawl space. The best solution is to use the Wave System.
Wave Home Solutions will dry put and ventilate the entire home. It works by drawing damp, polluted air from the floor level of the basement or crawl space through vents at the bottom of the unit. It then expels it outside. Warmer, drier air from upstairs is then drawn down into the basement/crawl space through a vent. This not only dries out the structure but creates the necessary air exchanges needed for a healthy home (6-10 exchanges). The system is self-adjust itself depending on the condition of the basement/crawl. It doesn’t shut off and only costs pennies a day to run. It is also maintenance free and comes with a satisfaction guarantee.
Our house was built in the 50s and has poor ventilation. We get a lot of standing water and mold at times depending on the weather conditions outside. The inside air is okay, but can get a bit heavy during the winter when we can’t open windows. Having a Wave System would make huge improvements in the overall air quality.
Wave Home Solutions is something worth checking into, especially if you have an older house like mine. Check out their website today. Below is a video that give a brief explanation of how the Wave System works:
