Keeping your home well-ventilated is important for maintaining a healthy airflow and home. Poor ventilation traps harmful pollutants which can build up in your home, causing allergy and asthma like symptoms. Avoid feeling stuffy and uncomfortable this season by reading our tips below.
Signs You Have Poor Ventilation You're uncomfortable: your comfort level is affected by improper humidity and temperature levels.
Condensation: A little condensation is normal, but if excessively high levels of moisture are left alone, it could lead to mold, wood rot, and ruined insulation.
Feeling Sick: Fatigue, sniffling, sneezing, hacking, headaches, and more can be attributable to trapped pollutants taking a toll on your health.
How to Improve Your Home's Ventilation Natural Ventilation: is the best option, even in the winter. Briefly open a window in each room; it will improve indoor air quality and oxygen levels.
Spot Ventilation: run your kitchen and bathroom exhaust fans more often. They can better control humidity issues in moisture-prone areas. They also takes some of the strain off your HVAC system.
Structural Ventilation: eave and ridgeline vents in your attic control heat and humidity, not just in your attic, but in your living space as well. They also help your HVAC easily control temperatures in your home.
