How to Keep Your Home Well-Ventilated

Keeping a well-ventilated home should be on top of everyone’s priority list when it comes to household maintenance. Professional equipment comes in handy when helping to ventilate homes but the home also needs to have a flow of air going through it to carry debris and air pollution out of the home. In order to achieve proper air flow, there are several strategies we will go over in this article.

Old Homes Weren’t Ventilated

Many people note that older homes don’t contain proper ventilation that could move air in and out of the home. Older homes, lacking the insulation and proper sealing of newer homes, allowed air to more easily move in and out of the home. The building materials were also more porous, allowing air to even move through them. This didn’t solve all of the issues that a proper ventilation system would have but it certainly made it more tolerable than it is to live in a modern building without ventilation.

Not Having Ventilation is Bad

Not having a ventilation system is one of the worst things that you can do to yourself when it comes to a home. Think about it, all of the air in the home is stale and lingering. Any particles of debris, pollution, and even mold spores are lingering in the same space for months. When it hits the spring and summer months it becomes particularly difficult for air to move in and out of the house, creating worsened problems from mold and humidity.

Balanced Ventilation

A ventilation system that involves a balanced system is the best case scenario. This is because different fans bring air in and out of the home. By doing this it allows for the control of an entry point and exit point for the air entering and exiting the home. This is important because certain areas of the home will need more air than others. Having air delivered to the areas that are most used is important and also have air sucked out of rooms where moisture or other debris builds up. This will ensure a healthier quality of life and will prevent mold and other bacteria from getting out of control in your home.

Heat Recovery

Heat recovery is the best possible option to have when installing a ventilation system. What this does is it reduces the amount of humidity blown into the house. The way that it ensures this is that it changes the temperature of the air as it enters to match the air inside of the home. By doing this the heat recovery system will prevent moisture from building up in the home that will further exacerbate these issues.
