Q:So this is just an exhaust fan? What's the benefit if it's humid outside i.e. the whole eastern US during warmer months? I could buy a normal bathroom type fan and humidstat switch for much cheaper.

Answer This Question

A:  Hello Steve, You're absolutely right, you can easily find much cheaper products available on the market. Will they be the technology you need to address excess moisture issues you are dealing with regularly? We have serious doubts about that! Humidex products are designed to deal with these kinds of problems, and have been tried and tested for over thirty years. In fact, only advanced technology equipped with adjustment capabilities is able to adapt its operation in line with the parameters and data collected. Unless I'm mistaken, a bathroom fan doesn't have this capability.

    Q:Why all the fake poorly edited pictures if this unit installed? Is it that bad? Do you have any real pictures of it?

    A:  Hello, You're definitely right the way that edited pictures of units installed aren't the best ones.

      Q:We have a finished basement. Can the DVS-BS-HDEX unit be set against the interior paneling instead of against the exterior block wall behind it. Our paneling is knotty pine.
      by|Mar 14, 2024
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Hello, Yes, this ventilation unit could be installed against interior panel as long as behind it is an exterior wall through which the unit will expel the air outside.

        Q:I have electrical -romex- connecting outlets between the location where the unit will go. Can the electric lines placed under the unit or behind the unit against the wall?

        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Hello, Unfortunately no since the model you choose is not a hard connect version and the unit can't be modified without breaking the certification along with losing the warranty.

          I would by no means says this was an easy installation, luckily the unit was a replacement for a breeze air circulator that broke and this was mostly plug and play for me. My home was built in 2014 and the basement was subsequently finished a few years later. I am currently running a floor dehumidifier in tandem with the humidex. The humidex will not solve for any humidity you have. I am having a difficult time keeping the Recommended RH for the summer is 55% and it won’t set to that.

            Great for basements
            Works great. It's a replacement for one I had for 30 yrs. However I think it's over priced

            Humidex basement vent system
            Seems like a lot of money for such a simple device! Plus, the amount of flexible 6" vent pipe supplied was too little, so I had to use self-supplied material. Simple operation, seems to be working.

            Hello Peter,
            Thank you for choosing to install a Humidex product in your home. Behind the apparent simplicity lies an algorithmic logic based on decades of experience.
            This ventilation unit is designed to control the relative humidity in your home 24/7, thus ensuring better air quality. All the accessories included with this product have also proven their durability and efficiency.

            Installation was straight forward and relatively easy in my case. The hardest part was drilling the 6" hole for the vent. The instructions are clear and easy to follow. I purchased and installed a rigid vent pipe instead of using the flex that came with the unit, I was able to eliminate the dehumidifier that we have been using for years. I am sure that I will see some savings on the electric use,

            Quiet, does the job
            Our home is a 1945 1100 SF bungalow with a concrete foundation. In Spring & Summer months the basement starts to smell dampish. We tried a dehumidifier, and while it did remove water vapour from the air, the smell persisted. So we purchased the Humidex. Had a diamond driller cut a hole in the foundation as we did not want to vent thru a basement window. The install was straight forward, although we did choose to upgrade to metal hood outside. Over a month later the dampish smell is gone and the basement air is much improved. Rainy days DO NOT re-introduce any damp smell into the space; its rate of air change ensures fresh air at all times. We expect to be able to shut it off in the winter months here in the Great White North, eh.

              THE UNIT NEEDS TO HAVE A SETTING TO HAVE IT...
              THE UNIT NEEDS TO HAVE A SETTING TO HAVE IT STAY ON IF YOU WANT IT TO RUN. IT ONLY HAS HUMIDITY SETTINGS? I NEED SOMETHING THAT CAN RUN AT A LOW SPEED AS LONG AS I NEED IT TO TO KEEP AIR CIRCULATING.

              Hello Anthony,
              This is exactly what the unit does 24/7 actually! The Humidex product makes a permanent air circulation inside the whole house, it never stops moving the air and adjusts the air flow related to indoor relative humidity rate.
