Why Do I Need This?
How Does It Work?
BASEMENTS AND CRAWL SPACES ARE THE MOST PROBLEMATIC AREAS OF THE HOME
Excessive moisture builds up from infiltration and everyday activities. These areas also lack ventilation which leads to a buildup of pollutants and moisture saturation. Tighter homes trap moisture and pollutants, creating an unhealthy and unsafe environment. Natural air flow pulls the pollutants upwards into the living areas affecting the whole house.
- BIOLOGICAL GROWTH
Moisture fosters proliferation of mold, dust mites, bug infestation
- AIR POLLUTANTS
Radon, Combustion Gases, Carbon Monoxide, VOCs
- STRUCTURAL DAMAGE
Moisture can lead to wood rot of floors and beams and damage pipes and windows
- HEALTH ISSUES
Moist, stagnant, polluted air can lead to respiratory ailments, asthma, and other health conditions
WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION
“Occupants in damp buildings have a 75% greater risk of respiratory ailments and asthma”
EPA and Surgeon General
“Need moisture control and ventilation to reduce asthma, illnesses, respiratory ailments…”
A HEALTHY DRY HOME IS EASY AS 1-2-3
- 1. EXPEL
…Odors, Stagnant Moisture, Mold Spores, Along With The Indoor Gases And Pollutants From The Lowest Point Where They Are The Most Concentrated.
- 2. REPLENISH
…With Warmer, Drier Air From Upper Level VIA A PASSIVE GRILL, To Raise Temperature And Lower Relative Humidity. A Fresher And Healthier Air Supply From Upper Level Dramatically Improves Air Quality.
…The Entire Area With A Continuous Airflow To Extract Saturated Moisture In The Structure, Reduce Biological Growth And Create A Required Air Exchange. This Will Result In Healthier, Fresher Air; Benefitting The Whole House.
“ I just wanted to let you know that Dave installed the system on Friday and it's working like a charm. Love it! And Dave did a terrific job and is a very nice man. Would (and will) recommend this system and Dave to my friends and co-workers. Thank you ”

“ I just wanted to drop you an e-mail to tell you how pleased we are with the Wave system. It amazes me still how quickly our cellar smelled better, no more musky odors, etc. within a couple days of the unit running. Amazing system and I was very skeptical about purchasing the system. I am very glad I did. Thanks again for a great product. The installer I had out of the Ludlow Vermont area was also fantastic and very neat and thorough with the job he did. ”

“ After installing the Wave system in the lower level of our office building we experienced fresher air almost immediately. I was so impressed with the results, I bought another one for my Rabbi who said it removed the damp odor in his basement and transformed it into a pleasant place to be. ”

“ My wife would always avoid using our dryer for clothes drying when possible. She felt it ruined the clothes. She hangs the clothes in the basement when possible. since we have your system we haven't used our dryer, the clothes are dry in less than 8 hours That is what I call a savings. A 40 watt bulb compared to 40 amp dryer ”

“ As a widow for 2 years, it was difficult for me to make the decision about getting the Wave Ventilation System. I had heard about it on radio. I had a dampness problem in my basement and during the summer I was emptying out my dehumidifier every day. My basement always had a musty smell. My electric bills were so high because of the energy required to run the dehumidifier. I was hesitant to buy the Wave because I thought it would be a long involved process to order and install it. It was super easy to order it and installation took 2 hours. It took only one week from time of order, delivery and installation! I have no odor at all in my basement and my electric bills are much lower. Best of all I could go away and not worry about emptying the dehumidifier!!! The team at Wave was professional and I would recommend this product to anyone, without hesitation! ”

Year Round Benefits
COLD, DAMP, ODOROUS, POLLUTED BASEMENTS AND CRAWL SPACES INTO COMFORTABLE, FRESH, HEALTHY AREAS.
HEALTHY, DRY CONDITIONS AND CREATES NECESSARY AIR EXCHANGES FOR THE ENTIRE HOUSE.
STRUCTURE IS KEPT DRY
MINIMIZING REPAIRS TO FLOORS, BEAMS, WALLS, WINDOWS AND PIPES.
Increases Energy Efficiencies
FOR THE HEATING AND AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM BY KEEPING THE ENTIRE HOME DRIER. IT IS LESS COSTLY TO HEAT OR COOL A DRY ENVIRONMENT AS OPPOSED TO A DAMP ONE.
It is a proven scientific fact that it requires less energy to heat or cool a dry environment compared to a damp one. The Department of Energy co-founded 2 studies examining humidity levels and overall energy use in different types of crawl spaces.
Both studies showed that crawl spaces with mechanical ventilation and air replenishment maintained lower relative humidity levels and improved the HVAC efficiency of the entire house by more than 17%. The same operating principles apply in crawl spaces and basements alike.
● Study #1
● Study #2
WAVE Ventilation systems operate in maintenance mode of approximately 40-60 cfm when relative humidity conditions are optimized and only kick into higher ventilation rates when conditions require it.
Multiple tests by GeoTek Engineering & Testing Services, Healthy Indoor Technologies and Inspection Management Test prove the WAVE Ventilation unit as an effective means to significantly decrease or eliminate mold, humidity, musty odors and radon in basements and crawl spaces.
GeoTek, well known for offering an array of environmental engineering services for federal, state and city government engineering projects, tested a home in Crooks, South Dakota, with visible mold, musty odors and obvious basement moisture. Just two weeks after the installation of a WAVE Ventilation unit, musty odors and mold disappeared. Testing three months later proved a significant decline in mold levels.
Healthy Indoor Technologies, a well-known mold inspection and remediation company, independently researched the effectiveness of the WAVE Ventilation system, discovering a 30% drop in indoor humidity after only weeks using the unit.
Inspection Management, an engineering, environmental and inspection firm with offices located in Princeton, Pennsylvania, Delaware and Maryland, conducted tests with WAVE Ventilation for moisture-related problems in an upscale home in Huntington Valley, PA. After only 24 hours, relative humidity levels in all three of the home’s crawl spaces decreased an average of 40%. Radon levels decreased an impressive 90% percent during the company’s test as well.

Sensor Controlled Basement Unit
Dimensions: Height 62” expandable to 97” 11”wide x 7”deep
Airflow: 40cfm(low) – 230cfm(high)
Capacity: 2100 sq. ft. basement
Description Computerized sensor controls provide intelligent ventilation by constantly evaluating conditions and automatically adjusting the ventilation and replenishment rate for optimum results and energy efficiencies. When conditions are favorable, the sensors will lower the ventilation rate to maintenance mode providing constant air movement to reduce stagnation and expel pollutants.
Crawl Space w/ Booster Fan
Dimensions: Height 30” x 11”wide x 7”deep
Airflow: 40cfm(low) – 180cfm(high)
Watts: 76 combined
Capacity: 3000 sq. ft. crawl space
Description Comprised of an exhaust unit and replenishment booster fan that work in tandem to effectively extract moisture, odors, air pollutants and dry out the floors and beams. The ventilation component will expel at a rate based on relative humidity and the booster fan will pull down an equal amount of fresh dry air from the upper level maintaining air pressure equilibrium. Extra duct work provided increases circulation throughout the crawl space.
Slab Home/Apartment Unit
