Powered Temp-Vent Series 6 (One Piece
Description: Powered Temp-Vent systems are designed for foundations
that require a higher rate of airflow and for areas that are difficult to
vent. Depending on the model they can move large amounts of air per hour.
Designed to run continuously on a low speed, they draw minimal electricity.
However, Temp-Vent recommends power vents be fitted with a thermostat and a
humidistat to control the operation of the vent.
To determine the correct number of Power Temp-Vents, use
the following formula:
Multiply the square feet of the
crawl space by the height in feet. This gives the number of cubic feet
in the crawl space.
Multiply the cubic feet in the crawl
space by the number of air changes per hour desired (4-6 is the
recommendation). This gives the total number of cubic feet of air that has
to be moved per hour to produce the desired number of air changes.
Divide this number by either 7,200
or 11,160 — depending on which model is being used — to obtain the number
of power vents needed.
Install Automatic vents to provide
air intake on one side of the foundation with the power vents on the other
side to create a system of intake and exhaust.
Calculating how many foundation vents are needed.
Example: 1500 square foot crawl space x 3 feet high = 4500
4500 cubic feet x 6 = 27,000 / 7,200 = 3.74
Install 4 power vents with intake vents on the opposite side
Power vents should be placed on one side of the house with non-powered
vents that act as intake vents, on the side.
A Thermostat should be used to turn the fan off in freezing
weather to protect pipes under the home and save energy.
here for more Thermostat information.
A Humidistat should also be connected to the fan to control the
operation of the vent. A damp weather shut-off humidistat will turn the unit
off when it's raining outside.

A Duct System is available that attaches to a powered
foundation vent to provide targeted ventilation in hard to reach areas.
