Dew Point

ATMOX Systems operate on the premise of using only drier air from the outside to ventilate the attic or crawl space. How does the system know if the air is drier outside? The webpage on Humidity explains how relative humidity alone cannot be used to determine ventilation. The ATMOX System uses a Dew Point comparison.

Dew Point is the temperature where any air mass when cooled to that temperature reaches 100% humidity.

Air with a lower dew point is drier than air with a higher dew point. The ATMOX System uses its sensors to measure both temperature and relative humidity both outside and inside the crawlspace or attic. These measurements allow ATMOX to calculate the dew point in each location and make a true comparison of the air masses.

After graduating from Michigan State University with a degree in structural engineering, Mike moved to Tampa Bay and soon discovered a need in the community for trained, professional inspectors. Using his training in the field, Mike established Affordable Inspections, Inc. in 1992 and began offering his services to the public – inspecting commercial and residential properties. Taking on not just inspections, but full-on construction projects, Mike made a name for himself as an expert in structural engineering and worked on large commercial buildings in Tampa Bay and Clearwater.
