The crawl space under your home, that's what. Crawl spaces need dry air and proper ventilation. To prevent wood rot and mold development, the ground moisture and air need to be monitored and managed.
A common and an often costly solution to this problem is crawl space encapsulation. While effective, this method serves mainly to control the ground moisture by keeping it from rising up to the wood, sub-floor and insulation under your home. This is only half the battle.
What about the air that is coming in from the outside through your foundation vents and openings? Humidity, heat and airflow all combine to affect moisture build-up and absorption into the floor joists, sub-floor and insulation. Our Atmox® system eliminates moisture build-up, controlling the air in and around your crawl space.
The Atmox® Moisture Control System monitors the humidity levels in your crawl space. By removing unwanted moisture from under your home, Atmox® helps prevent many crawl space problems. This system is an energy efficient and cost effective alternative to foundation encapsulation.
The Atmox® Controlled Ventilation System is a series of low voltage DC powered fans & humidity sensors designed to move out the moist "bad air" and move in the clean dry "good air".
Atmox® measures the dew point inside and outside your crawl space to determine when the fans should bring in "good air" and blow out the "bad air". If the air outside is too humid, the system does not turn on. When the air outside is better than the air in the crawl space, the system turns on to circulate the drier air.
House Rangers® only uses Atmox® electronic control units, sensors and fans. We minimize the use and waste of materials by properly installing vapor barriers, insulation and essential equipment only as needed or recommended.
We will also test your drainage mitigation — "how the moisture is driven away from your home", by evaluating gutter placement, drains and landscaping.
