Creating a dry storage environment

Posted on 8 July, 2014 at 12:56
Hello,

Is your basement damp? Would you like to store boxes in your basement, but you know the paper will become damp and eventually mildew?
Would you like to store dry goods on your basement shelves, but your concerned they will spoil.
Dave's Solution
You can either build or buy one of these WAVE units. We call my version "Dave's Wave Unit". It's really nothing fancy but it will make your basement dry and it does it automatically!


As most of you are probably aware, the biggest enemy in our homes is cold, damp air, which rust out metal and can lead to mildew and mold.  I have seen the mold fungus that just eats it way through about anything made of wood or paper. It can destroy the joists and support rafters under older homes
If we inhale the spores that travel through the air long enough it can lead to some very bad lung problems.  If the amount of spores in the air has reached a toxic level, we feel tired and sluggish within a few minutes.

What I want to talk about, is how to remove the cold, damp air out of your home.  In the mid-west where I live, basements are very common.  If you live in a dry climate, you probably don't have any of these problems, so you don't have to consider a solution.

However if you do have a basement or crawl space, there is a often a simple solution when you have a damp basement.  There are companies that repair wet basements and they have a system that does exactly what you can do for yourself-with the help of a licensed HVAC person.

I will build you a pre-assembled dehumidifier you can simply install it same way you would any dryer vent. If you would rather have a technician do this, call your local handyman. This is not new science.  I simply followed instructions to come up with an effective way to remove moisture and force it back outside.  There are a few parts that are hard to come by, because you need an account with a hvac company to get a humidistat. You need to rig up some kind of filter as well or you will have to clean the fan regularly.

 Dave's Wave machine being assembled.  This simple, but effective device will remove the moisture out of your basement.  I build them to suit the space required. This units case is constructed out of simple materials such as plywood as you see here. What makes the unit work automatically is the humidistat ( this is not available in retail stores). I just installed on for a family, so if you want some feedback give me a call or email us at [email protected]

This unit can be mailed to you fully assembled. It's small enough to fit in top of a shopping cart (where a kid usually sits).  When it arrives just attach the vent hoses and follow the instructions I provide. I will guide you through the set up instructions.  I test each of these before they leave. Warranty...if there is ever a problem, just call 419 937-6964 and we will help you get it fixed.

I'm in FL and getting rid of all the humidity has been a hassle. After installing a dehumidifier it's been so much more comfortable. It's awesome to see you've made you own device and are now selling it. Wish you luck!

Before Nest came out with its round thermostat, the majority of thermostats were rectangular white boxes. Since then some manufacturers have been inspired to add some design into their products, the most successful being the Ecobee3.

Having a basement in your house is one of a useful ways to store up things you will not use, you can also store the tools you are going to use. I know some of the important uses of having a basement. I didn't know that basements have this kind of problem, I agree that a damp basement can mildew boxes and papers, it can also make the steel tools rust. Gladly, you've made this kind of machine to make the basement dry. Thanks for sharing with us your awesome idea.

Wow! This blog is great in creating a dry storage environment. It gives benefits like to store dry goods without worrying it may spoil. It also helps me to lessen my worry about the cold and damp air that can cause the rusting of my appliances and easily food spoil. Sometimes my solution for this damp, especially in a cold weather is to turn up the heater and wipe my windows and windowsills to clear damp and residue at home.
