Home Needs Better Ventilation

How to Know Your Home Needs Better Ventilation

December 6, 2017

The air inside your Fernandina Beach, Florida, home is likely more polluted than the air outside. Because today’s homes are tightly sealed, there’s little room for fresh air to come inside. One of the easiest ways to increase your home’s indoor air quality is by installing a home ventilation system.

Signs of Poor Home Ventilation

If you’ve lived in your home a long time, you’re used to its smell. When that smell changes or gets stinky, you need fresh air. Freshen up indoor air continually with a home ventilation system.

Do you have doors that mysteriously slam shut? Some home heating and cooling systems can cause negative air pressure inside the house. When the pressure inside is lower than the pressure outside, air will rush in when you open a window or door. This rush of air often contains dirt, dust and sometimes pests. Regulate your home’s air pressure with a ventilation system.

Stale indoor air contains bacteria, viruses, mold and allergens. If your family is sneezing, coughing or wheezing, it’s time to ventilate. By replacing contaminated indoor air with fresh, outdoor air, you reduce your family’s exposure to irritants and illnesses. If you combine a ventilator with an air purifier, your home’s indoor air quality will improve even more.

Proper ventilation reduces indoor humidity and keeps air moving. Lower moisture levels and circulating air prevent mold and mildew growth. Using a ventilation system helps you create a healthy and happy home for your family.
