Consider Installing a Home Ventilation System — Here’s Why You Should
From bahiagrass pollen to oak trees and humidity, South Florida is no stranger to mold and allergens. If you suffer from any allergy symptoms, you may find relief with a home ventilation system. When you install one, you no longer have to rely solely on the HVAC system to improve the quality of air in your home. The ventilation system will supply you and your family with fresh air at the perfect humidity level, ensuring the quality of indoor air.
Benefits of Home Ventilation Systems
- Reduce indoor air pollution: Air pollution can enter your home whenever you open the front door. However, the building materials, furniture and appliances in your home may also contribute to unhealthy air. Paint, synthetic fabrics and engineered woods, for example, may contain volatile organic compounds. Pets can introduce dander and hair, as well as pollen from the outside. A poorly designed ventilation system may introduce combustion gases, including lethal carbon monoxide, from your furnace or water heater into the living areas. A good ventilation system improves the quality of air in your home and distributes the fresh air where people need it most.
- Prevent humidity and mold damage: It’s common for Florida homes without proper moisture control systems to have mold, mildew and dry rot in areas such as the bathrooms, closets, kitchens and floorboards, which can compromise the structural integrity of the building. A ventilation system in the house can save a homeowner the expenses associated with mold and water damage remediation, and the resulting renovation.
- Save on medical expenses: When maintained well, the filters in ventilation systems prevent pollen, dust, mold and other allergens from circulating around your home. By removing allergy and asthma triggers, you may find yourself at the doctor’s office less often and needing less medication.
- Convenience: Today’s home ventilation systems are quieter and come with programmable controls to maximize their benefits and energy efficiency.
