I need to vent a basement room. It's about 20 x 12. What happens
now is moisture laden air goes down the stairs and then drops the
moisture in the basement room. I want to keep the room cool so heating
to get rid of the moisture is out. So I have been looking at vent fans
and pretty much all I see are fans for venting crawl spaces and
So what kind of fan should I use? Thewre must be some sort of
shutter and a screen but I think those can be added to the outside.
And do I need two fans? One at each end of the room? So that fresh air
comes in and old air goes out. Or just an exhaust fan?
The room is aligned lenghtways sort of north to south. The southern
fan would be the exhaust fan and would vent under the front porch. The
northern fan, if there is one, would draw air in from the north facing
end of the house.
I live about 30 miles north of Seattle so I guess weather should be
taken into account too.
