Do you have sufficient ventilation under your home? Call us to find out!
Have you ever returned home from an extended vacation and noticed that your home doesn’t smell particularly fresh? If a space is closed up for any length of time without proper ventilation, the air can get stagnant and unwelcoming. Another problem is that the key aspect of ventilation is to reduce moisture, so without adequate ventilation, your Hickory, North Carolina home can fall victim to a variety of issues. At Basement Technologies of Western NC, we don’t just look at waterproofing as a way to make a crawlspace or basement dry. We also consider whether there is sufficient ventilation.
It is a common misconception that crawlspaces need to be closed up and sealed. The reality is that blocked airflow can cause a variety of problems. In our 20 years of experience in the ventilation and waterproofing industry, we’ve seen several different ways to deal with moisture problems. We continuously sought out the best options and came across the ATMOX system developed by a Charlotte company. This system is intuitive to know when added airflow is needed and when it is not. Since it is completely automatic, you’ll never have to think about it. No more closing up and opening the vents on your own based on the season and weather conditions. With an ATMOX system in place, you can be confident your crawlspace has the right ventilation at all times to minimize moisture concerns.
If you would like to know more about crawlspace or basement ventilation, as well as how the ATMOX system works, don’t hesitate to reach out to us to schedule a consultation and inspection. We’ll be able to tell you if you could benefit from ventilation or if there is another solution that would be better suited to the situation at hand.
