Modern homes are well-sealed, which results in much greater energy efficiency. It also emphasizes the need for better ventilation since a lack of fresh air ensures unhealthy pollution levels. While strong ventilation is important, the need is more pressing in some areas of the home than others.
Above and Beyond Heating & Cooling is a family-owned business that provides quality HVAC services to residents throughout Oklahoma City and the neighboring communities. We have found that many homeowners underestimate the importance of attic ventilation because they are unaware that the goal is to maintain an attic temperature that is the same or at least close to the air outside.
Anywhere where there is excess moisture is an ideal candidate for additional ventilation. Basements are notoriously damp due to the condensation that forms on unfinished walls and floors.
Dryers and washing machines tend to create a great deal of air pollution. Even with proper venting for the machines, additional ventilation in the room itself is a recommended way to ensure that those pollutants do not reduce air quality throughout the home.
A bathroom is another area that is prone to excess moisture. It is important to have ample ventilation and to run those exhaust fans whenever anyone takes a shower. This helps avoid any musty odors that may occur as well as bigger problems, such as mildew and mold.
People usually don’t associate their kitchens with pollution unless they’ve badly burned something. However, even an uneventful cooking session creates more contamination than you may expect and left unchecked, which can substantially reduce air quality in the home.
