You’re grateful that the summer heat has finally departed Mobile, Alabama, but that doesn’t mean you’re opening your doors and welcoming in the winter. When the weather cools, you and your family tend to spend more time inside. This only increases your chances of experiencing the adverse effects of indoor air pollution. Prevent stale air and improve indoor air quality in the fall and winter by installing a whole-home ventilator.
What’s a Whole-Home Ventilator?
Leave water on its own and it’ll become stagnant. Air works in a similar way.
While you won’t get poisoned from breathing stale air as you would with stagnant water, it still reduces indoor air quality and comfort. Therefore, you need to keep the air in your home moving. Simply operating the HVAC system isn’t enough.
A whole-home ventilation system works with your HVAC system to circulate air throughout your living space. There are a variety of different whole-home ventilators. They all function similarly by drawing in outdoor air and exhausting indoor air, filtering it for better air quality.
Why Install a Whole-Home Ventilator?
Without proper airflow throughout your home, chemicals from cleaners and carbon dioxide molecules sit in your air. Whole-home ventilators remove those unwanted particles by bringing in fresh air. But why install an entire system when you can simply open a window and let in fresh air?
While opening windows every once in a while is a good idea, keeping them open constantly can reduce heating efficiency. It can even let in harmful particles from the outdoors.
If you want to avoid allergy symptoms and asthmatic reactions in your home without compromising energy efficiency, you need a whole-home ventilator. To see the ventilator’s benefits for yourself, call Air Specialty today at (251) 415-4559.
