How Does E·Z Breathe Work?
The E·Z Breathe® is a device that expels the dampest, coldest most contaminated air from your home to theoutside. The most common question asked by homeowners is: “If the air is exhausted outside, do we lose anyheat?” The answer is no. Since E·Z Breathe® eliminates only the damp, cold, air at the lowest level of your home,the potential for losing heat is low. If we go on the principle that a damp basement is harder to heat than a dry one,it’s more economical to replace that damp air with dry air and then heat it. Once the E·Z Breathe® has exhausted the damp air outside and replaces it with dry air from the higher levels of your house, it will shut off. The E·ZBreathe® 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 E·Z 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%.PLEASE NOTE… when the desired humidity level has been achieved, the E·Z Breathe® unit will automatically turn off, and then on again as the humidity level increases. The E·Z 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.
- 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.
