If your home
has a crawl space instead of a basement or if your basement has
high humidity or moisture, Leaf has the solution for you. Our foundation
ventilation system and moisture barrier installation can help prevent
damage to your home caused by fungi and insects. Damage to homes
by these wood-destroyers is over $1 billion annually.
Temp-Vents are specially designed, non-electric vents that automatically
open and close based on air temperature. They are totally rust-proof
and may be painted. Once installed by a Leaf professional, the Temp-Vents
will allow the proper amount of air to circulate, reducing moisture
problems and musty smells.
Under unusual conditions such as high moisture conditions in a
crawl space, Power Temp-Vents may need to be installed. This vent
provides electrically forced ventilation and is controlled by an
electric humidistat or thermostat.
Added Benefits of Temp-Vents Include:
- No fuss—automatically opens and closes with temperature
- Screens on both the inside and outside of the vent prevent
insect and rodent entry.
- Helps to save heating and cooling costs.
- Improves the value and appearance of your home.
- Helps prevent frozen water and sewage lines.
A moisture barrier is designed to be installed over soil in a crawl
space or basement. Leaf’s moisture barrier will not allow
moisture to penetrate the barrier, stopping condensation on floor
joists, sub flooring and insulation.
By stopping moisture, Leaf’s moisture barrier will help to
protect your home from wood-destroying insects and fungi that thrive
