The Importance of Ventilation
One of the biggest causes of harmful airborne contaminants in your home is humidity. If your home is humid, it can encourage mold growth. This mold, when lacking proper ventilation, continues to grow and create spores, leading to health problems. Ventilation helps prevent both indoor and outdoor contaminants.
- Indoor Contaminants: Chemicals used during construction or renovation of your home, such as glues from carpets, emissions from particle board, and more, can cause living issues. Additionally, gas-burning appliances like furnaces and stoves can produce carbon monoxide. Finally, cleaning products used without ventilation can also cause irritants.
- Outdoor Contaminants: While opening your windows and doors in the spring always feels refreshing, it also lets in plenty of outdoor contaminants like pollen and other allergens. Additionally, anytime you run your heating or cooling system, it draws air into your home. Filters are a great way of protecting from these, but proper ventilation continues to prevent against them from existing in your home.
If you notice condensation on your windows throughout the year, you may have an excess moisture problem that can benefit from a home ventilator. There are two different types of ventilators. These are heat recovery and energy recovery.
- Heat Recovery: These are ideal for our climate due to a longer cold-weather season. In these seasons, excess moisture poses a serious problem.
- Energy Recovery: These are ideal for warmer climates, usually in the south. However, while homes are built differently with a wide range of aspects, you may benefit from this style. We can help you identify the correct type of ventilator that is best for your situation.
Comfort and Energy-Saving
Your ventilator will remove excess moisture from your home and promote a healthy environment for your family. Plus, it will help alleviate any mold issues you may have forming. Most people don’t know they have mold growing in their home until it’s too late. On top of ventilators creating a more comfortable living space, they also help improve the energy efficiency of maintaining a proper temperature. Your air conditioning and heating won’t have to work as hard to regulate the temperature in your home due to excess moisture in the air. This allows you to run your HVAC system less frequently while the ventilator works around the clock, lowering your energy emissions and bills.
