Humidex®

Humidex® offers a product that will eliminate all mold and dampness issues for less than you may think.

The World Health Organization (WHO) 2009 study states:
"Occupants in damp or moldy buildings have up to a 75% greater risk of respiratory symptoms and asthma. Management of indoor moisture requires proper control of temperatures and ventilation to avoid excess humidity, condensation and saturation in materials. Ventilation should be distributed effectively throughout to avoid stagnant air zones."

The EPA States:
"Unless they are built with means of mechanical ventilation, homes that are designed and constructed to minimize the amount of outdoor air that can "leak" into and out of the home may have higher pollutant levels than other homes."

How it works:


STEP 1 - Expel

The moisture seeping in through the foundation and generated from normal activities contribute to a heavy moisture laden air mass at the floor level of the basement and crawl space. It is also the coldest surface, thereby resulting in the highest relative humidity.

In poorly ventilated areas, the damp air stagnates and creates an environment conducive to mold growth, structural damage and discomfort. The quality of air in the lower levels are saturated with contaminants from combustion appliances, chemicals, gases, radon and vapor toxins that permeate in from underneath.

When a Humidex® system is installed and operating, this stagnant, damp, contaminated air is drawn to the bottom vents of the unit by a powerful, yet quiet, ventilation fan. This is the distinct uniqueness and effectiveness of Humidex®, in that it is directing the effort to the source of the problem and where it persists. When the surface moisture is drawn off, the moisture within the walls tends to come to the exterior surface and is also expelled, resulting in a process that is drying out the structure.


STEP 2 - Replenish

Once the moist air is drawn into the powerful, quiet patented Humidex® system, it is then expelled to outside of the house through a 6" dedicated duct. This flushed-out, contaminated air is then replaced with a flow of relatively drier, warmer and fresher air drawn downward from the upper levels. The warmer air will lower the relative humidity and reduce the condensation on the basement surface.

The interior upstairs air is then replaced with cleaner, fresher outdoor air entering the home naturally via windows, doors, and cracks.


STEP 3 - Ventilate

The Humidex® system is automatically controlled by an adjustable humidistat that regulates the flow of air. When the desired level of humidity is achieved, the fan will reduce speed and resume a higher speed if humidity level increases. At a high rate, which is only at peak times, it will be equivalent to two bathroom fans. In maintenance mode it's a fraction of that, enough to meet the minimum air exchange required.

The direct effect of the air being expelled and the flow of air downward creates an air exchange throughout. As the moisture is drawn off the surface, the moisture absorbed in the walls and floor comes to the surface and is then expelled, reducing structural damage.
