Air Vent foundation vents are made to keep basements and crawl spaces well ventilated. Proper use of vents in the foundation will help minimize moisture, mold, bacteria, and other pathogens from building up in your home. Air Vent offers three choices of vents, powered foundation vents, automatic foundation vents and manual foundation vents.
- Powered vents have a small fan in the housing that runs at a low speed when the levels of humidity exceed the humidistat. Powered vents are installed on one side of the foundation while the other side requires an open, non-powered vent.
- Automatic vents fit openings 13” x 5”. When the temperature reaches 70℉ the vent automatically opens and will close when the temperature is around 40℉.
- Manual Vents will have either a slider or an accordion mechanism that has to be opened and closed by hand. Vents are available in either metal or plastic options. Standard sizes for the meta vents are 16” x 8”, jumbo vents are 16” x 9” and the plastic multi-purpose vents are 12” x 7”.
