Ventilation is needed in a home for a number of reasons. When designing a home, it is advisable to consider incorporating home ventilation into the design rather than installing it later on. A home ventilation system provides the occupants of the home with fresh and clean indoor air.
Having a new ventilation system provides many benefits apart from the provision of fresh air.One of these includes benefits to the health of the occupants. Bad health often emanates from cold and damp houses. The negative effects that a cold and damp house can have on one’s health can be combated by a ventilation system.
Highlighted below are benefits that can be derived from a new ventilation system.
- Control of Impurities
In most cases, the air inside a house is more polluted than air outside because of poor circulation. The use of a good ventilation system will help to get rid of impurities such as pollutants, moisture, bacteria as well as odor found in the home.
- Regulation of Air
One cannot have control over the flow of air in a building without a proper ventilation system in place. If such airflow is not in place, then it means you will have to depend on the difference in pressure inside and outside the building.
Thus, there won’t be an adequate control of air during winter and summer. During winter, one will be exposed to too much fresh air. Exposure to too much fresh air leads to more costly energy bills. Also, during summer, you will get too little fresh air and can lead to leakage of air into the home from undesired areas like the garage.
Thus, having a good ventilation system is beneficial in getting rid of these excesses.
- Combating Condensation
Condensation causes the growth of mold and rotting of surfaces. The combination of damp conditions and condensation can also lead to health problems which include allergic reactions as well as respiratory problems. These risks can be reduced or completely eliminated through the use of a new and good ventilation system.
- Reduction of Temperature
The environment where we have lots of people confined to a particular place often becomes uncomfortable since it usually gets hot and stuffy. When such areas becomes well ventilated, it becomes more comfortable and gives room for a more productive living space.
- Health Benefits
Headaches, allergies, sinusitis, rashes and asthma are some of the health problems that can be caused by indoor air pollution and bad ventilation. This was confirmed by the EPA. A good ventilation system will help to protect against the indoor pollutants thereby reducing or preventing the occurrence of these health problems.
- Air Quality
According to the EPA’s Energy Star initiative, indoor air has the tendency of becoming more polluted than the air outside. A new ventilation system can help in boosting the quality of the air found indoor by removing pollutants. Also, a good ventilation system will get rid of moisture that can lead to the growth of mold. It also helps in filtering and adjusting the air that comes into the building from outside.
