Moisture Control

Help Protect Foundations 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 products have been especially designed for the pest control industry.

Temp-Vent foundation vents help to provide ventilation that can reduce moisture in these areas, which helps control termites.

Automatic Foundation Vents
Automatic Foundation Vents take the worry out of remembering to open and close vents as the weather changes. The vent has a bi-metal coil to open and close automatically without electricity. When the temperature reaches 72°F the vent is fully opened to provide fresh air, and fully closes at approximately 38°F to conserve energy and protect pipes.

These vents are easily installed using screws, or screw anchors and retaining clips. Both are included with the vents. No mortar is required for installation.

Manual Replacement Vent

Manual foundation vents must be manually opened in warmer months to provide ventilation and closed in cold weather to guard against pipe freeze. The Manual Replacement Vent is the same vent as the Temp Vent Automatic Foundation Vent with no automatic coil, therefore it requires manual operation.
