Ventilation in the Home: A Breath of Fresh Air Okay, now take a deep breath. Now exhale. Makes you kind of happy, right? Obviously we do this all the time to cycle out the old air and bring in the new. But did you realize your home needs comparable circulation for a similar reason: to keep it free of airborne contaminants? In-home air ventilation products swap poor air for fresh air. Ventilation keeps things moving, allowing circulation of indoor air that shields 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 those who are new homebuyers, 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 dank, and contaminants get trapped. Yeah…sorry to burst the new home bubble, but it is important to find a solution. That’s called ventilation happiness, and Limcan Walker/Certified Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning in Whitby feels the same way. Here’s what you need to do: let our experts install an air ventilation system—such as the Heat Recovery Ventilator, which moves humidity outdoors, and keeps heat from indoor air before it’s discharged. This system and others monitor indoor and outdoor temperature and humidity, and then brings the required air replacement continuously. Such systems are incredibly efficient, adding 5% to 10% more fresh air every hour, essentially reducing the concentration of airborne contaminants.
