Ventilation in the Home: A Breath of Fresh Air Breathe in. Now exhale. Makes you sort of happy, right? Obviously you do this all the time to cycle out the old air and bring in the new. But did you realize your house needs the same type of circulation for a similar reason: to keep it clear of airborne contaminants? In-home air ventilation products exchange poor air for fresh air. Proper ventilation keeps things moving, allowing circulation of indoor air that keeps it from becoming stagnant. As basic as it sounds, it’s really important! Experts estimate there are more than 300 chemicals used in those lovely home furnishings you’ve collected, from paints and finishes to carpets, wood flooring, insulation and furniture. You kept your receipts, right? For those who are new homebuyers, you are not exempt: new and remodeled homes are more tightly sealed for energy efficiency. That means a reduced amount of airflow, less circulation, and reduced movement. Indoor air can become stagnant , and contaminants are confined in your home. Yeah…it’s pretty important to make sure you have proper ventilation. That’s called ventilation happiness, and Mountainwest Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning in Salt Lake City couldn’t agree more. Here’s a solution: let our experts install an air ventilation system—such as the Heat Recovery Ventilator, which transfers humidity outdoors, and preserves heat from indoor air before it’s discharged. This system and others monitor indoor and outdoor temperature and humidity, and then delivers the required air replacement continuously. Such systems are very efficient, adding 5% to 10% more fresh air every hour, essentially diluting the concentration of airborne contaminants.
