More and more indoor environments are suffering with poor indoor air quality. Modern homes are well insulated but can suffer air pollution. Homes are being built tighter to decrease energy costs. However, poor ventilation leads to an increased in mold, bacteria, viruses, smoke and gases that can in the long run affect your personal health. Pollutants that can be found in your home can cause poor indoor air quality in your indoor environments. Home Ventilation plays an important part in keeping your environment comfortable at all time. The air we breathe indoors is circulated to maintain proper indoor conditions. However, when not maintained fresh air levels decrease. There are several ways that you can ventilate your home.
Whether it is by natural ventilation, infiltration or mechanical ventilation, an effective ventilation system will ensure air quality in your home or business is clean and free of contaminants that produce unclean air. The Indoor Air Quality Association shares a video that talks more about home ventilation and indoor air quality.
