EZ Breathe Ventilation System Installation
Once the most optimal location for the EZ Breathe unit has been identified, drill a pilot hole from the inside straight through to the outside of the house.
Pilot hole from the inside straight through to the outside of the house.
Line up the pilot hole with the pilot bit on the 6” hole saw. Score the hole first in reverse, slow speed (this will keep the hole saw from skipping on siding). Once through siding put drill in forward mode and drill 6” hole.

From the inside, line up the pilot hole with the pilot bit on the 6” hole saw. Score the hole first in reverse, slow speed (this will keep the hole saw from skipping on drywall). Once through drywall put drill in forward mode and continue to drill 6” hole. This step is only necessary when installing in a finished space. When installing through a faceplate / rimjoist, the 6” hole can be drilled entirely from the outside.

Put outside vent cover onto metal tube/collar and insert into 6” hole to measure collar to see if the metal tube/collar needs to be trimmed.
Metal tube/collar as seen from inside. Line up with the back of the unit to ensure proper length. In some cases the metal tube/collar may need to be trimmed to proper length.
Once proper length of the metal tube/collar as been established, mount the vent to the outside of the house utilizing 4, 1 1/4” screws that come in the bag with the vent cover.
Once the vent has been mounted, seal the seam between the vent cover and outside wall with a silicone caulk. Smooth the caulk with either a latex gloved finger or a wet paintbrush.
Back inside, attach the back of the cone to the metal tube/collar.
Attach EZ Breathe unit to the inside wall utilizing the provided screws through the holes in the flanges of the mounting brackets. The holes in the flanges can be used to drill holes for wall anchors and screws as needed, based on the material of the wall.
Once the EZ Breathe unit has been mounted, seal the seam between the metal tube / collar and the inside wall with a silicone caulk. Smooth the caulk with either a latex gloved finger or a wet paintbrush for a nice finished look.
Finished installation. Please note that the area is left cleaner than it was when we arrived. Be sure to wipe up and/or shop vac any left over residue from installation process.
Place the humidistat at 35%-45% and fan speed between medium and high to ensure proper ventilation. Go over the owners manual with the homeowner, highlighting the blue warranty card. Have homeowner sign the completion certificate and make note of current humidity readings as well as condition of the home. (see completion certificate)
