ATMOX Intake Vent Fan with Removable Vent Cover
In most cases, these foundation vent fans mount from the outside of the crawl space in most standard vent openings that have a 16 x 8 inch opening. The fans replace any existing grill in the vent openings so they are aesthetically pleasing. However, the vent cover is removable for added flexibility in your installation for small vent openings.
Option 1: Fans may be installed from the outside which is convenient when space is particularly tight. The vent cover comes attached to the fan for ease of installation. The fan is easily placed and aligned in the vent opening and tightened into place with four screws. Additionally, to better hold the fan in place, use caulk around all four sides of the vent cover. The fan is then ready for power connection.
Option 2: The foundation vent fans are unique and designed with a removable vent cover for the added flexibility of installing them from inside the crawl space. The vent cover is easily removed using a screwdriver. The design allows installation in vent openings that fall between joists. This is typical in West Coast or California construction. Another benefit to internal mounting is allowing for unique or aesthetic vent covers to remain untouched.
The fans are one component of the ATMOX System. The system uses an ATMOX controller, fans and/or dehumidifier for the actual drying or moisture control. However, the ATMOX setup is not just fans and/or a drying unit. The ATMOX System is a smart solution using the ATMOX ACE Controller, the brain of the system, to determine the best operation to improve conditions within your crawl space. It does this through analysis of the combination of dew point, temperature, and humidity. Therefore, the components will run only at optimal times. ATMOX focuses not only on energy efficiency and removing excess moisture but also on air quality.
The ATMOX controls use a low voltage 12V DC wire to power the fans. This means the setup of all components (not including a dehumidifier) will run from one electrical outlet. Therefore, the installation is simple, and it minimizes or eliminates the need for an electrician at the installation.
Without an ATMOX controller, an AC Adapter can power these fans in a standard outlet. In this setup, the crawl space fans will run continuously.
