Temp-Vent Foundation Vent System
Series 5 (Two Piece Construction)
Help protect your foundation with Temp-Vent. The foundation is
critical to the integrity of the home.That’s why foundation
ventilation is critical. Unventilated foundations are subject to
built-up moisture that can eventually lead to costly damage.
Temp Vent foundation vent systems help protect this critical area
of the home. What’s more, ventilation can help control conditions
that lead to mold, mildew, fungi, damp rot and unhealthy air.
But there’s more.
If there’s one thing termites are attracted to, it’s warm, moist,
dead air environments such as those found under houses in crawl
spaces or unfinished basements.
Temp-Vent foundation vents are designed to provide ventilation that
can reduce moisture in these areas, which helps control termites.
A crawl space dehumidifier with no drain or power needed!
Whenever possible, vents should be placed on all sides of the
foundation. This will create an intake/exhaust system that delivers
a steady flow of air. One vent should be installed for each 8 to 10
feet of foundation wall.
Most building codes require 1 square foot of open ventilation area
for every 150 square feet of crawl space. Temp Vent Automatic
Foundation Vents have 50 inches of net free area per vent.
Therefore, you should install one vent for every 50 square feet of crawl space.
For crawl spaces with polyethylene installed, on 80-90% of the
ground, the ventilation requirement changes to 1 square foot of
ventilation for every 500 square feet of crawl space with a minimum
of 4 vents installed to provide cross ventilation. For crawl spaces
with polyethylene, install at least one vent for every 500 square feet of crawl space.
