Why You Need A Marine Ventilation System!
The theory behind ventilation goes beyond just moving air. Ventilation's goal should be to both move air and equalize humidity levels inside and outside the boat. Contrary to popular belief,closing off the boats' cabin to protect the boat from humid air entering it will further raise the humidity levels below deck, no matter where your boat is located. Moisture in the boat is created as humidity and temperature levels constantly vary due to differences between air and water temperatures when your boat is docked.This moisture then creates the ideal atmosphere for mold and mildew causing significant odor and damage to upholstery, electronics, and interior finishes.The System creates air movement and vents stale air overboard on a continuous 24/7 basis - creating an odor-free and Safe cabin and eliminating the environment necessary for moisture build up and damage.
A Quality Marine Ventilation System provides two major types of ventilation...the first is Maintenance ventilation: and is the most crucial as it reduces and/or eliminates the growth of mold, mildew and removes musty air in the boat cabin. The System with it's optimum installation replaces the air throughout the boat at least once per hour resulting in a clean, fresh, moisture free cabin.The second type and significant benefit, Comfort ventilation: is the amount of ventilation required to affect the comfort level in the cabin. The System draws in cooler, fresher outside air and vents out the warmer stale cabin air that's been produced as a result of refrigeration units, Occupancy and electronics. The Marine Ventilation System is a great complement to AC units as you'll find you can run your AC unit less as the cabin air is naturally cooler and drier. It works equally well when underway in heavy seas or foul weather as hatches don't need to be open.Replaces solar ventilation fans with no need to drill large holes in your boat's deck, requires little or no maintenance or batteries to replace each year, and has a life expectancy of over 10 years with a five year warranty.The Marine Ventilation System can replace your Dehumidifier. Works in tandem with your air conditioner. Many boat owners leave their AC units running as a Dehumidifier to help with the moisture level in the boat. No more!!! Extend the life of your expensive AC unit. Don't invest in an unsightly Dehumidifier or chemicals that simply try to treat the problem after it happens. The Marine Ventilation System through the application of simple continuous negative pressure ventilation provides an innovative and proven solution to all the issues you're seeking to solve. The average 35 foot boat has approximately 1200sq ft. of air space and when looking into ventilation systems, boat owners should consider which ones will add ventilation throughout the whole boat - The Bilge, Compartments and Cabin. Just one System is sufficient for most boats and removes your requirement for additional costly investment. We recommend you read as many articles as possible to help understand the need for and benefits of a mechanical ventilation system. Helpful websites include the Home Ventilation Institute's (HVI) & (EPA) Have many articles which outline the advantages and requirements of a home ventilation system -- and as a boat owner you know that boats are far more problematic.Your boat is not only your living area but also your basement & attic-- all-in-one space. Over the years home building has become so energy efficient that new homes now lack any natural ventilation. The need to draw in outside air mechanically is a must and is now mandatory by code. This is exactly the problem that boats and marine vessels have had since their inception!!! And - the solution has now been made simple with the Marine Ventilation System. Our Marine Ventilation System is a Whole Boat Ventilation System that is simple, effective and designed for a maintenance free Long Life!!

OSHA Facts: Hydrogen Sulfide Gas (H2S)
Hydrogen Sulfide is a colorless flammable, extremely hazardous gas with a "rotten egg" smell.
It collects in low-lying and poorly-ventilated areas such as basements, boat and yacht bilges, sewer lines etc. The primary route of exposure is inhalation and the gas is rapidly absorbed by the lungs. People can smell the "rotten eggs" odor of hydrogen sulfide at low concentrations in air. However, with continuous low-level exposure or at high concentrations a person loses his/her ability to smell the gas even though it is still present (olfactory fatigue). This can happen very rapidly and at high concentrations and the ability to smell the gas can be lost instantaneously. Therefore, DO NOT rely on your sense of smell to indicate the continuing presence of Hydrogen Sulfide or to warn of hazardous concentrations. In addition, Hydrogen Sulfide is a highly flammable gas and gas/air mixtures can be explosive.
HEALTH EFFECTS OF H2S EXPOSURE
Hydrogen Sulfide is both an irritant and a chemical asphyxient with effects on both oxygen utilization and the central nervous system. Its health effects can vary depending on the level and duration of exposure. Repeated exposure can result in health effects occurring at levels that were previously tolerated without any effect. Low concentrations irritate the eyes, nose, throat and respiratory system (e.g. burning/tearing of eyes, cough, shortness of breath). Asthmatics may experience breathing difficulties. The effects can be delayed for several hours or sometimes several days, when working in low-level concentrations. Repeated or prolonged exposures may cause eye inflammation, headache, fatigue, irritability, insomnia, digestive disturbances and weight loss. Moderate concentrations can cause more severe eye and respiratory irritation (including coughing, difficulty breathing, accumulation of fluid in the lungs, headache, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, staggering and excitability.
