Dampness in Basement
Our basement is damp. Smells like a basement. We have tile floor but there is furniture and a TV downstairs and the kids will hang out there sometimes. Has anyone ever used one of the ventilation systems such as Humidex? It is not a dehumidifier. It is a ventilation system. It takes the air near the floor and vents it outside. You have to put vents in the doors (if there are any) at the top of the stairway so it can pull air from upstairs. They claim that is can actually reduce energy costs as dry air cost less to heat that damp air etc..... Is that true? Will my house then be too dry in the winter? Any advice will be welcome.
