Help Protect Foundations with Temp Vent
The foundation is critical to the integrity of the home. That's why foundation ventilation is crucial. Unventilated foundations are subject to build-up moisture that can cause damp rot and eventually lead to costly damage. Temp-Vent foundation vent systems help protect this critical area of the home. What's more, ventilation can rid houses of other harmful condition including mold, mildew, fungi and unhealthy air.
But there's more. If there's one thing termites are attracted to, it's warm, moist, dead air environments such as those found under houses in crawl spaces or unfinished basements. Temp-Vent foundation vents work to provide ventilation that can reduce moisture in these areas, which help control termites that can damage the structure.
Automatic Foundation Vents:
The non-powered, Automatic Foundation Vent will open and close automatically using a heat-cold sensitive coil. The louver open completely at approximately 72F and completely close at approximately 38F. Unlike manual vents that can waste energy when no one remembers to open and close them, these vents self-adjust all year long to minimize moisture and help prevent damage from termites, mildew and other factors.
Power Foundation Vents:
Powered Temp-Vent systems are designed for difficult moisture problems. Depending on the model they can move large amounts of air per hour. Designed to run continuously on low speed, they draw minimal electricity.
