Whether it is during the winter or summer season, you certainly want your home to be well ventilated to enhance comfort and health and provide decent indoor air quality. With the various available ventilation options, it helps to rely on useful, professional advice on some of the best ways for cost-effective and efficient house ventilation. Provided here are three tips to help you boost your home ventilation for optimal comfort and energy efficiency.
Use natural ventilation: If the outside weather allows it, you can enhance indoor air quality by opening doors and windows to allow airflow in and out. Air leakage through small cracks and openings in the walls and roofs also constitutes natural ventilation. However, this type of freshening increases energy loss and is uncontrollable and unreliable, the more reason you should embrace facilitated ventilation.
Install a whole-house ventilating system: Consider installing an effective system such as the energy recovery ventilator (ERV), which is fitted with a heat exchanger to facilitate simultaneous expulsion of fusty air and inflow of fresh air. The ERV minimizes energy loss and may be customized according to the weather of the day. ERV systems minimize costs of heating and cooling indoor air in the winter and summer respectively, meaning your home remains fresh and comfortable all year round.
Spot Ventilation: You can enhance whole-house and natural ventilation by installing spot ventilation equipment such as fans that are placed at strategic points in the house to bolster home ventilation efficiency.
