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 the new. But were you aware that your house needs comparable circulation for a similar reason: to keep it clear of airborne contaminants?


n-home air ventilation products exchange poor air for fresh air. Ventilation keeps things moving, allowing circulation of indoor air that keeps it from becoming stagnant. As plain and 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 still have your receipts, right?


For those who are new homebuyers, 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 stagnant , and contaminants shut into your home. Yeah…it’s pretty important to make sure you have proper ventilation. That’s called ventilation happiness, and Francis Home Environment Heating and Air Conditioning in Ottawa feels the same way.


Here’s what you need to do: let us install an air ventilation system—like our Heat Recovery Ventilator, which transfers humidity outdoors, and preserves heat from indoor air before it’s discharged. This system and others monitor indoor and outdoor temperature and humidity, and then supplies the required air replacement continuously. Such systems are extremely efficient, adding 5% to 10% more fresh air every hour, essentially reducing the concentration of airborne contaminants.
