The EZ Breathe® expels the dampest, coldest most contaminated air from your home to the outside. The most common question asked by homeowners is: "If the air is exhausted outside, do we lose any heat?" The answer is no. Since EZ Breathe® eliminates only the damp, cold, air at the lowest level of your home, the potential for losing heat is low. Damp basement air is harder to heat than dry air, so it's more economical to replace damp air in your home and heat fresh dry air. Once the EZ Breathe® unit has exhausted the damp air outside and replaces it with dry air from the higher levels of your house, it will shut off. The EZ Breathe® continuously monitors the humidity levels, turning itself on as humidity levels increase.
The Humidistat Setting
This component continuously monitors the humidity level of the air being expelled through the EZ Breathe® unit. You can set this control to maintain the desired level of humidity in your home/building.
For best results, set the humidstat between 30 - 50%.
NOTE - when the desired humidity level has been achieved, the EZ Breathe® unit will automatically turn off, or back on again as the humidity level increases. The EZ Breathe® will run continuously until desired level has been reached. Don't worry; the unit has been designed to perform under these conditions. During winter / colder periods when the furnace is often running, the unit may shut off due to the humidistat reaching the desired humidity level. During these periods, you can set the humidistat to its lowest setting and turn the fan to low. This will cause the unit to run on low continuously, providing ventilation for the space without exhausting heated air.
Fan Speed Control
The rate at which you expel the air outside is adjustable with the help of this control.
For best results:
In the summer, set the speed control on med - high.
In the winter, set the speed control to med - low.
VENTILATION ONLY: Humidistat to 20% & Fan Speed to slow.
