What is Fresh Air Ventilation?

Air Filtration

Today’s homes are tightly sealed and built with energy efficiency in mind. This type of construction is great for keeping your hot and cool air from seeping out of the house, but it traps all types of harmful pollutants and odors in your house that you may not realize. Fresh air ventilation is needed to help keep those harmful pollutants out of your home.

Proper ventilation can make your home healthier and more comfortable. When your heating and cooling system runs, it circulates all of the chemicals and pet odors as well; trapped air contains harmful chemicals that can threaten your family’s health. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the concentration of pollutants can be up to 10 times greater inside your home than outside.

Common Household Contaminants

Commonly found contaminants in the home include:

  • Formaldehyde
  • Radon
  • Smoke
  • Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)

These contaminants can lead to several health issues like the following:.

  • Allergies
  • Asthma
  • Chronic winter illness
  • Headaches

Not only do homes with insufficient fresh air ventilation see the above health issues increased, but we also see problems in the home itself including mold and moisture.

How to Get Fresh Air Ventilation

You can just open a window and let fresh air in your home, but sometimes that isn’t a possibility due to weather conditions and security concerns. This method can also increase your heating and cooling costs.
The best solution is a professionally installed whole home ventilation system that controls your air quality and makes your home a healthier environment. It does this by:

  • Expelling dangerous and cancer causing pollutants
  • Removing foul odors
  • Providing fresh air while reducing energy costs
  • Assisting in monitoring and controlling temperature and humidity
  • Providing greater comfort and security at a lower cost

Fresh air ventilation systems are not only effective but they are also:

  • Affordable
  • Operate quietly
