A pair of energy-saving fans are capable of automatically and simultaneously ridding basements or other areas of stale, musty, or smelly air, and drawing in fresh outside air. Called XchangeR™, the fans come in two styles. Model X2D is designed for mounting directly next to an outside wall and Model X2R can be connected to the outside intake/exhaust hood with 6-inch ducts so it can be installed in a different room than where the outside wall hood is located. Both models feature two reversible 90-cfm fans that can be positioned to move air in either direction. The user has three options: exhaust air from the interior, draw outside air into the home, or reverse one fan for a balanced air exchange. The dual fans in the XchangeR use 35 W of electricity. In basement applications, the XchangeR is normally installed through an opening in the rim joist between floor joists. Model X2D’s electrical cords are plugged into the included dehumidistat control that is plugged into a standard electrical outlet. The control senses the amount of humidity and automatically turns the unit on or off. Optional control methods include a wireless switch or a plug-in timer. Model X2R does not include a dehumidistat control, so that it can be paired with the type of control that best fits the homeowner’s needs.
