Some of the most unwanted, disgusting pests are attracted to a very unnoticeable substance- moisture. Unbeknownst to most people, moist, damp areas can attract and foster the growth of a disturbingly large amount of insects and even mold. As a result, it is of utmost importance to routinely check all areas of a home or structure for signs of moist, rotting wood. In areas such as bathrooms and kitchens that are almost constantly damp, all spots that could potentially harbor moisture should be kept dry; in addition, they should be well ventilated and dry to prevent the growth of mold to the furthest possible extent. Manufacturers produced crawl space vents with these potential hazards and pest attractive abilities in mind; these vents can efficiently ventilate a vast area without needing to be placed close to each other. By utilizing crawl space vents, the area which contains them will be well-ventilated and free of excess moisture - Vent Crawl Space

Benefits of Crawl Space Vents

German cockroaches are attracted to humid areas while America cockroaches are attracted to moist areas. Basements and other areas near the ground such as the foundation of a house are areas capable of being great sources of moisture and humidity. Basements and foundations are also ideal access points for many pests to enter your homes, including subterranean termites, which seem to adore invading basements. In order to protect your home and set up a preventative measure against pests, crawl space vents are important. Crawl space vents will keep air flowing through your basement or foundation to prevent any areas from becoming damp. Because the air will also be constantly circulating, the chances of humidity levels becoming high enough to attract numerous pests will decrease. In addition, crawl space vents will also dry and air out crawl spaces that one may need to crawl through to apply pesticides for a certain pests. After installing crawl space vents, the probability of mold, mildew, wood rot, condensation, moisture, or humidity accumulating will significantly decrease.

In addition to being an overall, very beneficial supplement, vents are available in a couple of different colors to better suit the specific color of a basement or foundation. One of them, the Powered Temp Vent, is also compatible with a special type of thermostat that can be appended onto the vent to close it whenever temperatures drop too low. There is also a humidistat that will turn off the fans of the vent at certain humidity levels.

How to Place Crawl Space Vents

In most termite control treatments and trenching, crawl space vents are placed along the foundation or basement walls to facilitate treatment and also act as a preventative measure from future pest infestations. Depending on the foundation or basements, one vent should be placed every fifteen linear feet or on every side of the structure. If it is not possible to install a vent on one side of the foundation, one may simply place the accurate number of vents on the remaining three or more sides.

Q. automatic crawl space vents
I have a ranch home, square footage is 2200, on a crawl space. I have already bought 2 temp vents from your company along with 2 humidistats to control both vents. First question is, do I need another powered temp vent? Also, do I need a humidistat for every powered temp vent? It says 1 humidistat controls up to 6 temp vents but each vent has to plug into the humidistat? Correct? I think I need one more powered temp vent but if I don't have to buy the humidistat, then I would save $95. Last question, do you recommend the thermostat to go with the temp vent for cold conditions? I live in Charlotte, NC so it is very humid here, it gets cold but not that cold. Also, if you recommend, do I need 1 thermostat for all three temp vents?
A.   2 temp vents will be enough. Both the thermostats and humidistats can power up to 6 temp vents. Thermostats are set to your desired temperature and will fans turn on when it reaches that set temperature. If you have any other questions or comments, please feel free to contact us again.
