Ventilation in the Home: A Breath of Fresh Air Take a deep breath in. Now exhale. Makes you kind of happy, right? Obviously your body does 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 void of airborne contaminants? In-home air ventilation products exchange poor air for fresh air. Ventilation keeps things moving, allowing circulation of indoor air that protects it from becoming stagnant. As plain and simple 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 held on to your receipts, right? For you new-homebuyers out there, you are not exempt: new and remodeled homes are more tightly sealed for energy efficiency. That means a smaller amount of airflow, less circulation, and reduced movement. Indoor air can become stagnant , and contaminants shut into your home. Yeah…sorry to burst the new home bubble, but it is important to find a solution. That’s called ventilation happiness, and Midland Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning in Columbia feels the same way. Here’s what you need to do: let our technicians install an air ventilation system—for example the Heat Recovery Ventilator, which relocates the humidity outdoors, and retains 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 incredibly efficient, adding 5% to 10% more fresh air every hour, essentially weakening the concentration of airborne contaminants.
