Wave Home Solutions for a Healthy Home

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Wave Home Solutions for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

We never had a basement until we moved into this house, so we had no idea about moisture issues - until things down there started smelling like mold and mildew.  We didn't think our basement was damp, but I guess that's just the nature of basements - and crawl spaces, though I never ventured into the crawl space at our previous house.

We went out and bought a dehumidifier as soon as we realized that something needed to be done about the moisture in the basement, and we've been using one ever since.  I thought that was good enough until I started reading about what Wave Home Solutions does.  Apparently dehumidifiers dry out the air but they do not ventilate so you still have trapped toxins, pollutants and stale air, and those pollutants can flow upward into the main part of the house.  These things can lead to something called Sick Home Syndrome which is characterized by respiratory ailments, asthma, headaches and other symptoms.

A system from Wave Home Solutions not only dries the air, but also provides the ventilation needed to get all the bad stuff out of your  house.  The system draws the damp, polluted air from the lower level of the basement or crawl space and expels it outside.  This creates the necessary air exchanges needed for a healthy home. The Wave Home Solutions system constantly and automatically monitors relative humidity and adjusts for maximum results. Optimum conditions are maintained year round and the system costs pennies a day to run, is maintenance free, and satisfaction is guaranteed.  They say that dehumidifiers can cost up to $50/month in electricity and, of course, there are all those buckets of water to empty.  No more of that with one of these home systems.

This is not something that I've heard before, but it does make sense.  If it would help me avoid some headaches...  And Beth is doing better since she moved back home, so I think their old apartment definitely had worse air quality than we have here, but she still has some respiratory problems that I'd love to see go away.  It would definitely be something worth checking out.
