What is Fresh Air Ventilation?


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)

How To Reduce Indoor Air Pollutants & Improve Indoor Air Quality


How To Reduce Indoor Air Pollutants & Improve Indoor Air Quality

Want to maximize indoor air quality and reduce the indoor air pollutants in your home?

A high-efficiency air cleaner might help. You can eliminate as much as 99% of the pollen and spores that find their way into your home through your heating and cooling system. You can also eliminate a great deal of the household dust, dirt, smoke, and other air pollutants in your HVAC system. Your indoor air will become cleaner and fresher while reducing the allergens and dust that circulate throughout your house.

If you use a whole house humidifier, you can drastically reduce the annoying discomfort of dry indoor air. A good humidifier works to reduce itchy skin, scratchy throats, static electricity, and damage to your furnishings and woodwork.

One thing that most people don’t realize is this. Since humid air feels warmer than dry air, you do not have to set the thermostat as high to feel the comfort you want. A lower thermostat setting will reduce the costs of your energy bill.
