Directions for Use

Whenever possible, vents should be placed on all sides of the foundation. This will create an intake/exhaust system that delivers a steady flow of air. One vent should be installed for each 8 to 10 feet of foundation wall.

Most building codes require 1 square foot of open ventilation area for every 150 square feet of crawl space. Temp Vent Automatic Foundation Vents have 50 inches of net free area per vent. Therefore, you should install one vent for every 50 square feet of crawl space.

For crawl spaces with polyethylene installed, on 80-90% of the ground, the ventilation requirement changes to 1 square foot of ventilation for every 500 square feet of crawl space with a minimum of 4 vents installed to provide cross ventilation. For crawl spaces with polyethylene, install at least one vent for every 500 square feet of crawl space.

The non-powered, Automatic Foundation Vent will open and close automatically using a heat/cold sensitive coil. The louvers open completely at approximately 72 F and completely close at approximately 38 F. Unlike manual vents that can waste energy when no one remembers to open or close them, these vents self-adjust all year long.

To Specify

To determine the correct number of Power Temp-Vents, use the following formula:

1. Multiply the square feet of the crawl space by the height in feet. This gives the number of cubic feet in the crawl space.
2. 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.
3. 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.
4. Install 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.

Please refer to and follow the instructions on the Product label.

There is a PDF file called Vented VS. Sealed Crawl Spaces

This was the only article I could find to back up the vents. There may be statistics on the study of new sealed crawl spaces, however it still remains to be debatable. The best way to go about it is to go with the building code in your state. Some states require at least one vent on each side of the crawl space.
