Consider a Whole-Home Ventilation System
Throughout Delaware, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey, stale indoor air in winter and summer humidity can cause real comfort issues. A whole-home ventilation system helps solve these problems in ways your bathroom vents can’t.
How a Whole-Home Ventilation System Differs
Opening windows, running your kitchen and bathroom ventilation fans, and upgrading to a higher-efficiency furnace filter can all help clean your air, but their effect is limited. You can’t rely on them every day and they leave a lot of air contaminants behind.
A whole-house ventilation system consists of exhaust vents in your kitchen and bath along with supply vents in your bedrooms and living room to bring in fresh outdoor air. This design allows the system to remove a wider range of air contaminants and operate all day in any kind of weather.
Cleaner Air, Greater Comfort
A whole-home ventilation system offers a number of benefits for your health and comfort.
- Fresh air in every room — With vents throughout your house, you’ll be assured every part of the building receives good airflow. This means better indoor air quality overall and fewer lingering odors. The improved humidity control these systems provide reduces the risk of mold growth and cuts down on dust mites.
- Fewer VOCs in your air — Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are harmful airborne fumes that come from carpets, upholstery, cleaning fluids, and many other sources. Air filters can’t trap them and bathroom fans aren’t powerful enough to remove them all. A whole-house ventilation system clears these contaminants out of all your rooms.
- Balanced airflow — Overusing your exhaust fans can create negative pressure inside your home. This causes the building to suck in humid outdoor air and air contaminants through small cracks around the windows and doors. The balanced airflow provided by whole-house ventilation prevents this problem.
