AVIR Computerized Controlled, Heavy Duty Basement Unit

Ventilation for Moisture Control and Improved Air Quality

Moisture Control Benefits

  • Reduces Mold Growth, Moisture, & Odors
  • Extracts moisture from walls, floors, windows
  • Improves efficiency of HVAC system
  • NEW! Sensors downstairs & upstairs for superior performance
  • Energy Saving, Maintenance Free, Quiet

Indoor Air Quality Benefits

  • NEW! Carbon Monoxide detection which triggers app alert and automatic expulsion
  • Reduces radon levels
  • Expels gases, asthmatic triggers and VOC’s
  • Creates whole house air exchange as per code
  • Automatically adjusts to prevailing conditions
  • NEW! Mobile app for remote monitoring and control

The AVIR Basement Unit provides continuous, year-round moisture control and improved air quality in homes. By addressing the worst air mass, namely the basement, and reversing “stack effect” of air moving upwards, it will draw down moisture and pollutants from the upper levels as well, improving the indoor environment of the entire home.

The latest Avir units utilize wireless sensors that communicate with each other to monitor the conditions in both the lower and upper levels of the home to determine the optimal rate of ventilation based on prevailing conditions and automatically adjust. Built in carbon monoxide detectors will send out an alert on the MyHome app and automatically expel at the highest rate.

Expel

…Odors, Stagnant Moisture, Mold Spores, Along With The Indoor Gases And Pollutants From The Lowest Point Where They Are The Most Concentrated.

Unlike a dehumidifier, AVIR Basement Ventilation units monitor moisture levels

Replenish

…With Warmer, Drier Air From Upper Level To Raise Temperature And Lower Relative Humidity. A Fresher And Healthier Air Supply From Upper Level Dramatically Improves Air Quality.

Ventilate

…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; Benefiting The Whole House.

The secret is to focus on the worst air mass in the entire house and reverse “stack effect” which will positively affect the upper living areas. Avir provides a continuous air exchange by venting damp and polluted air from the basement, resulting in an improvement in the quality of the air throughout the entire home and reducing the health and structural risks associated with moisture and mold.

Superior to a Dehumidifier Moisture Control
+ Improved Indoor Air Quality

 

Unlike a dehumidifier, AVIR Basement Ventilation units monitor moisture levels

The AVIR Basement Unit provides homes a solution for moisture control and air quality that is:

  • Effective and Safe: Units continuously monitor relative humidity noting trends, are automatic and self-adjusting so there are no complicated controls to maintain and no risk of overheating
  • Environmentally Friendly: AVIR Unit is completely maintenance free. There are no contaminated filters to wash or replace, and no buckets of polluted water to be emptied.
  • Easy to Install: The units are simple to install and do not require ducting, HVAC installation, or electrical work.
  • Aesthetically Pleasing: Basement units were designed to be aesthetically pleasing, compact and discreet, in order to blend seamlessly into any home.
  • Cost Saving: The sensible ventilation units from HQ Hometek improve the efficiency of the HVAC system, as damp air is more difficult to heat and cool, saving on energy costs.
  • Code Compliant: Provides necessary ventilation as per building codes and health authority recommendations.

Protect home structure from moisture damage, increase the home’s energy efficiency, and keep the entire house healthier and more comfortable with sensible, maintenance-free ventilation all year long with the AVIR Basement Unit.

Manual

“Normally our procedures work great but we often encounter conditions that promote mold sporulation…We are now using these ventilation systems as a permanent fix to previously unsolvable moisture problems.”
– Alfred H., Millman Systems

“Since we have been promoting these ventilation units with our PRIMARY basement waterproofing service our sales have been growing on a continual upward scale…”
– James T., Basement Waterproofing Inc.

“The ventilation unit has become a very beneficial add on to my mold remediation business. I am now able to offer my clients an added measure of moisture protection, and make a nice profit at the same time. Having Humidex available has given me the opportunity to offer alternatives to customers with mold problems due to moisture.”

“The ventilation unit has saved our customer not only thousands of dollars but also their health by reducing the humidity in the basement. This has made costly dehumidifiers obsolete. It tremendously reduces the growth of mold from a health standpoint and removes noxious gases that linger on the floor of basements. Thank you again for an amazing product and a great support staff.”
Ken K., Basement Doctor Waterproofing Co.

  1. What about the additional energy cost of using the heat and air conditioning from upstairs?It’s a scientific fact that less energy is required to heat or cool a dry environment as opposed to a damp one. In one Dept. of Energy test, the heating and air conditioning costs of homes with crawl spaces using mechanical ventilation similar to our units, saw a 17% reduction for the whole house. Each house will vary but the units will increase efficiencies of the HVAC systems.It’s a controlled sensible ventilation that at high rate, is equivalent to running 2 bathroom fans. Once optimal conditions are achieved the unit goes into low speed of 40 cfm to maintain the environment.
  2. Why is this better than a dehumidifier?Dehumidifiers have limited capacity, do not create necessary air exchanges, are energy guzzlers and require maintenance. For a full comparison see the “Benefits” tab.
  3. The house is really tight and energy efficient, won’t this depressurize the house?The installation requires that replenishment air is simultaneously drawn down to balance out the expelled air. In reality, the unit exhausts at a low rate in the winter when the house is closed up more. In the summer you have more doors and windows open. The ventilation rate when it is running at high which isn’t all the time, is no more than 2 bathroom fans. It’s requires less air supply than most of the equipment in the house; boilers, water heaters, combustion, fans, etc.
  4. Why is this a year-round solution?In the summer the problems are more evident, but everyday activities in the home always generate moisture. When there is inadequate ventilation, the stagnant moist air nourishes mold, odors, mildew and dust mites. By depriving them of those conditions, they become inactive and cannot grow.Indoor pollutants and gases are part of the indoor environment. The unit will continuously expel harmful gases such as radon, combustion gases, VOC’s, toxins and other pollutants.
  5. Does this help in reducing Radon? Yes. Radon enters at the lowest point in a home. The unit is installed at the lowest level with vents at the bottom that pull in and expel the radon as well as other types of gases (i.e. combustion, toxic vapors). Tests have shown dramatic reduction of radon; as much as 90%. However, the unit does not regulate or measure radon levels. The installation allows for balanced replenishment air so that the area is not depressurized.
  6. The floors are warped, buckling or there’s condensation – how does this help?Moisture saturates into a structure when there is no ventilation. The constant air flow will extract the trapped moisture and keep the structure dry, reducing maintenance costs, repairs and replacement.
  7. How will this improve air quality?Codes and health authorities urge moisture control and mechanical ventilation to reduce mold, asthmatic triggers, infestation. Air exchanges are needed to expel gases and pollutants. Indoor air can be 5-100 times worse than outdoor air. This unit will continuously create an air exchange throughout the house and reduce biological growth.
  8. Why doesn’t this unit shut off in the winter when humidity is low?When relative humidity is low, the unit will operate in maintenance mode to ensure constant ventilation to maintain a healthier indoor air environment. In the winter people are more shut in and all the gases, chemicals, toxins are sealed in and are inhaled. Often in the winter there are more illnesses and respiratory ailments. Moisture and pollutants are constantly in our environment, regardless of the season.
