The Importance Of Ventilation And Air Movement In Your Home

Ventilation

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Air conditioning (AC) has given us the ability to take control of the climate within our homes. At the touch of a button, we can shut out dust, germs, bugs, and extreme temperatures.

Keeping those things out is good, but sealing ourselves in can create other problems. This is why ventilation and air movement within your home is important.

Is Simply Recycling Air Enough?

The purpose of a basic air conditioning unit is to recycle and adjust the air within a contained space. This sounds good, but when you consider that the air inside your home can be more polluted than the air outside – simply recycling it no longer seems like such a great idea.

Here are three of the most harmful things that could be trapped inside your home due to improper ventilation.

  1. Germs

    There are many hotspots in our homes where germs thrive. We spread germs by coughing, sneezing, and talking; add a pet or two and the germ-count automatically increases.

  2. Too Much Moisture

    Regardless of the climate outside, our homes trap moisture inside. Because one of the by-products of breathing is water vapor, humans are mainly the cause of excessive moisture indoors.

    In addition, showering, bathing, and cooking all add more moisture to the air in our homes which creates the perfect environment for mildew and mold to grow.

  3. Mildew And Mold

    Your Health: Mold thrives in a damp environment.

    Mold spores are bad news and can trigger a number of health issues from a blocked nose, scratchy throat, tight chest, and coughing. It can also irritate the eyes and skin. The reactions can be more severe for people with mold allergies or those with compromised immune systems. For these people, exposure to mold can lead to serious infections.

    Your Home: In a moisture-rich environment, mold and mildew can form and grow inside walls and under the floors. If left untreated, it will cause damage to the structure of your home.

The Solution: An HVAC System

An HVAC system can be tailored to your individual needs to deal with pollutants, germs and moisture levels.

Too much moisture in the air causes mildew and dampness, and too little is uncomfortable and can dry out your skin and eyes.

A properly installed HVAC system will create an exchange of the warm damp air from inside with cool, dry air keeping you and your family comfortable.

How To Choose The Right HVAC Solution For Your Home

Sure, choosing an HVAC solution can be daunting, but we can help.

A Home Comfort Specialist from Art Plumbing, AC & Electric will assess your home by doing a whole-home air infiltration test to see if there are areas that need more effective sealing and insulation.

Part of the inspection will test your energy efficiencies and the performance of your duct system. Once the inspection is complete, you’ll be advised of the best options to keep the air in your home cool and pollutant-free.
