What is the perferred way to ventilate a basement?
I built a house in VT zone 6A. The unfinished basement has a musty smell to it. The 2 floors of living space are fine.
I only have 2 (1’x2′) basement windows in the east side of the house. I’m planning on finishing the basement and looking to install a HRV ventilator for the basement only. The house is heated with radiant floor heat and wood stove. Basement is 1,400 sq ft.
