WHAT TEMP-VENT CAN DO FOR YOU

We offer effective solutions to help reduce conditions conducive to pest activity, all while helping maintain your home’s structural integrity and heating and cooling system efficiency.



MOISTURE UNDER CONTROL

When it comes to protecting the wood in your home, an effective crawl space ventilation system is key. It can help fight two threats to wood in crawl spaces – destructive wood-decay fungi and non-destructive fungi.


DESTRUCTIVE WOOD-DECAYING FUNGI

Our crawl space vent solution fights the three basic types of destructive wood-decaying fungi that commonly occur in the wood components of structures.


  • Cubical brown rot, which occurs when wood is in dry-to-wet and wet-to-dry situations, causes decayed wood that is brittle and very dark. It gives the wood a charred appearance.
  • White rot, which infests wood that is exposed to continuous moisture, is common in poorly vented crawl spaces. The infested wood becomes spongy and fibrous and takes on a bleached appearance.
  • Wood-conducting rot, a specialized fungus, can infest sound, dry wood. The fungi is able to do this by conducting water from a remote source – often many feet or yards away.

NON-DESTRUCTIVE FUNGI

Our crawl space ventilation system also fights non-destructive fungi threats. These include surface molds and mildew and sap-stain fungi.

These fungi feed on sugars and starches in wood cells, but don’t damage the cellulose. Therefore, while the fungi give the wood an unattractive appearance, the wood retains its structural strength.
