Well, I agree those are the better solution, but they aren't the
"wave" miracle machine. Problem is, it's not miracle.
AFAIK it's basically just a fan with a humidistat that moves
air from where it's installed in the basement to
outside. The makeup air then comes from the conditioned living
space air. They tell you that it costs very little to run, which
is because they only count the electricity to run the fan in the
wave unit and totally ignore the energy loss due to pumping
conditioned air from the living space, into the basement and then
outside. Another problem I have is when you can't easily find the
price of something online. That alone should be a red flag.
If I wanted that kind of solution, I could put it together DIY using
a fan, humidistat, dryer vent and some flex duct for not much at all.
