How much time do you spend inside your Duluth home? Although you might think you’re always on the go, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the average American spends up to 90% of their life inside. With so much time spent inside, you want to make sure you have proper ventilation to keep indoor air healthy.
How Does a Whole Home Ventilator Work?
Whole-house ventilation systems work to remove stale air from buildings through a series of vents and ducts. The stale air exhausts outside and gets replaced with fresh air. A well-planned, properly installed system improves indoor air quality (IAQ) without adding to heating or cooling costs.
What Issues Can Whole-house Ventilation Address?
Ventilation systems help households address multiple issues in their homes that affect IAQ and comfort. Installing a whole-house system helps you manage the following issues:
- Household contaminants: Pollutants found in households include pet dander, dust, dirt, and even rodent droppings in the ductwork. Whole-house ventilation removes the pollutants and makes it easier for people to breathe in their homes. Most people notice an immediate improvement in their allergy symptoms when they improve their home’s ventilation.
- Remove odors: You might not associate a smelly home with insufficient ventilation, but lingering odors result from poor airflow. Removing odors makes your home smell better, but more importantly, it keeps you and your family from breathing in toxic chemicals like radon and carbon monoxide.
You Deserve the Cleanest Air
It doesn’t take long for contaminants to accumulate in your home. Fortunately, you and your family don’t have to live with poor IAQ. The HVAC industry has many solutions to clean and ventilate your home’s air efficiently and affordably.
