Ventilation throughout your home can save you time, money, and energy. It is simply the process of outdoor “clean” air being supplied to your home to replace indoor “stale” air.
The exchange of air through ventilation is important in both commercial and residential properties, as it impacts your indoor air quality. It can help control temperature, humidity levels, and airflow.
Indoor Air Quality
Your indoor air quality is important to your health. With good ventilation, you reduce the risk of both long term and short term health issues, like indoor allergies, asthma, and headaches.
The levels of indoor air pollutants are often between 2 to 5 times higher than outdoor levels, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.
Moisture inside your home can lead to mold or damp surfaces that can also impact your indoor air quality and contribute to health issues. Proper ventilation can reduce these risks.
Your house should feel and smell welcoming to your guests. This means no leftover cooking odors or other odors that may linger throughout your household.
Air fresheners are not the correct solution, they may mask the smell, but it will not just go away.
Ventilation can help minimize odors especially in odor prone areas of the home, such as kitchens and bathrooms. It can reduce chemical gasses and help reduce mold and other bacteria build up.
