What is WAVE ventilation System?
It is a fan which is turned on by a humidistat switch (humidity level) and expels air from your basement. They claim the reduction in air pressure in the basement draws down air from the upper portions of the house, replacing the basement air with conditioned air from above. Same theory with your basement.
How much is EZ Breathe system?
E-Z Breathe® Creates Pollutant-Free Living The E-Z Breathe® Ventilation System maintains healthy humidity levels. It only costs $2-$4 per month compared to a traditional dehumidifier that can cost up to $50 per month!
Does Humidex really work?
The Humidex works really well by itself the rest of the year, including the winter. The Humidex pulls the cold, damp air off the floor, and pulls warm air from upstairs into the room. I highly recommend the Humidex.
Will a fan in the basement help reduce humidity?
Another way to reduce moisture downstairs is to install basement fans to control humidity. Similar in function to a bathroom fan, these high-capacity vents push moist air away from the basement and into the outside air. If used sparingly, you can also run your bathroom fans to reduce humidity in the house.
Are air purifiers good for basements?
Yes, air purifiers are good to use in the basement. These devices improve air circulation and reduce pollutants such as mold spores and dust. Houses that have a musty or damp smelling odor can benefit from the use of an air purifier as long as it uses an Activated Carbon filter.
How does wave dehumidifier work?
This type of appliance uses a fan to expel air from your basement. The reduction in air pressure in the basement draws down air from the upper portions of the house, replacing the basement air. The advantage of this type of appliance is its lower operating (energy) cost.
How do you ventilate a musty basement?
Floor fans and a dehumidifier are additional options that may help keep a basement adequately ventilated. Another option is to install exhaust fans that connect to vents located throughout the basement. These fans can be permanently installed in windows or might require cutting through a basement wall to install.

Do I need an HRV or ERV?
The best option between an HRV and an ERV depends on your climate and specific needs. If your house is too humid in winter (above 60% RH) then an HRV is the better choice, as it would surely get rid of excess humidity while an ERV would tend to keep it at a high level.
Is heat index the same as humidex?
While both the humidex and the heat index are calculated using dew point, the humidex uses a dew point of 7 °C (45 °F) as a base, whereas the heat index uses a dew point base of 14 °C (57 °F).
