Whole home ventilation system fights moisture and pollutants
Whether it is a child who sneezes and coughs inside the home because of allergies or asthma, a musty smell in the basement or crawlspace that will not go away, compromising the air we breathe or a stale, stagnant uncomfortable feeling throughout the entire house.
In fact, indoor air often carries more harmful or irritating substances than outdoor air.
Now there's a way to bring the freshness of healthy air into even the most damp, musty spaces.
The new E·Z Breathe Ventilation System and can transform the entire home into a healthy, pollutant-free living environment. E·Z Breathe provides complete home air exchange that improves indoor air quality, reduces indoor humidity and lowers allergen and pollutant levels.
According to the company, E·Z Breathe can help alleviate many common homeowner concerns such as mildew odors, mold growth, pet dander, dust mites, humidity and moisture, pollen, chemical smells, and other complaints while removing over 85 percent of airborne particles and common indoor air pollutants.
E·Z Breathe Ventilation System can complement, and in many cases replace, the standard home dehumidifier with a sleek air exchange system that is discreetly installed in any basement, crawlspace or even garage and vented outside the home. It allows fresher, cleaner air to circulate into the space creating much needed air exchanges in what is scientifically proven to be the most polluted air quality of the home.
“We are inhaling air into our lungs anywhere from 10,000 to 70,000 times a day,” said E·Z Breathe Vice President Andre Lacroix. “Doesn’t it make sense to at least consider the quality of the air we breathe? That is where we at E·Z Breathe have placed our focus.”
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency reports that the air in the average American home is a minimum of five times and, in some cases, up to 100 times more polluted than outdoor air, and building science experts agree that more than 20 gallons of water vapor are absorbed into the average home through basements and/or crawlspaces every day.
Most homes have a closed loop system that simply recirculates the same air in the home over and over again, which causes a buildup of contaminants that can cause asthma, allergies, mold, mildew, odors and moisture. At certain levels, those become hazardous to the health of occupants and the integrity of the home. Even though it is installed in one room, E·Z Breathe achieves whole-home air exchanges six to ten times daily by gently drawing air throughout the home to replace the stale, polluted air being exhausted.
E·Z Breathe can help eliminate “sick home syndrome” and its uncomfortable symptoms including coughing, sneezing, increased in headaches, snoring, sinus irritation, etc. caused by a buildup of pollutants and toxins in one’s own living space. E·Z Breathe ventilation can also reduce the natural "stack effect” whereby warmer air rises losing energy and heat out the roof. Foundation ventilation will help to reduce the energy and heat loss caused by the "stack effect" through the upper levels of the home and keep the warmer air where it belongs, in the living space. That, in-turn, keeps the roof cooler and reduces the formation of ice dams.
E·Z Breathe products are maintenance free, work for up to 7,000 square feet of living space, and operate efficiently at only $2 to $4 a month; the same as a 40-watt light bulb.
