Ventilation for basement
I recently insulated my basement with rigid foam and have begun framing. My house is heated and cooled with minisplit units and I was thinking that it might be good to have a way to ventilate my basement since I live in New York and opening the windows during summer would introduce a lot of moisture into the basement. The basement consists of only about 500sqft so I was hoping to find something fairly reasonable in price. I saw that Panasonic has a whisper comfort model for around $300 but it looks like that system can only remove and return air from the same point. I was concerned that this would also be returning some moisture with the outside air (although less than the ambient humidity) so I was wondering if there was an inexpensive way to exhaust air from my basement and return air to a room upstairs? Any ideas? Should I just go with the whisper comfort? Thanks for any suggestions.
