Read Answers for Vortex Powerfans

Are these designed to Blow air or Suck air, Where should they be placed? -D

They work for both blowing and sucking so you can place it on the end that is most convenient for your setup (or in the middle if that works better). -Greners Staff

I have a 500 sq. foot basement that, even with a rebuild, still maintains a musty odor. I want to put a fan at floor level and vent it out the rim joist to draw air from upstairs and move out the basement air. I would appreciate any advice or fan suggestions that you can offer. -Jon

Assuming 8 foot ceilings, that is 4000 cubic feet. A 6" Vortex power fan will draw 452 CFMs, and is capable of evacuating the air in the room every 9 minutes. A 12" powerfan will do the same in three and a half minutes. However, to fully realize these CFMs, you will likely want to connect the fan to a system of ducting with multiple inlets. You can view our ducting parts here: My concern is the source of the musty odors. While fresh air should help, you may have an unseen source of mold or mildew. -Greners Staff
