Ventilation in the Home: A Breath of Fresh Air Breathe in. Now exhale. Makes you kind of happy, right? Obviously we do this all the time to cycle out the old air and bring in fresh air. But did you know that your living space needs the same type of circulation for a similar reason: to keep it clear of airborne contaminants? In-home air ventilation products exchange poor air for fresh air. Proper ventilation keeps things moving, allowing circulation of indoor air that protects it from becoming stagnant. As simple as it sounds, it’s really important! Experts estimate there are more than 300 chemicals used in those lovely home furnishings you’ve amassed, from paints and finishes to carpets, wood flooring, insulation and furniture. You kept 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 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 Parker Pearce Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning in Gaithersburg agrees. Here’s a solution: let our technicians install an air ventilation system—for example the Heat Recovery Ventilator, which transfers 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 delivers the required air replacement continuously. Such systems are very efficient, adding 5% to 10% more fresh air every hour, essentially reducing the concentration of airborne contaminants.
