The functioning of the HVAC system in your Sharpsburg, Georgia, home directly impacts your indoor comfort level. However, even when the HVAC system is operating exactly as it should, this doesn’t necessarily mean you’re achieving optimal indoor comfort. Your home’s ventilation also impacts indoor comfort and affects indoor air quality.
Why Ventilation Matters
Ventilation is tricky. You don’t want too much air flowing out of your home, as this can lead to energy loss and cause your cooling expenses to rise, but you also don’t want all of your indoor air trapped inside of your home. Instead, you want to achieve a healthy balance of airflow in and out of the home.
In many homes, especially older ones with poorly insulated walls and in newer ones with tightly sealed windows and doors, it can be difficult to maintain proper ventilation. This is why many people choose to install a mechanical ventilation system in their home. Mechanical ventilation works by using ducts and fans to suck in fresh air from the outside and distribute it throughout the house. Sometimes, exhaust fans in kitchens and bathrooms are connected to this system.
With proper airflow, the AC can work according to optimal efficiency, easily allowing you to save money on cooling expenses. Proper airflow is also important for reducing wear and tear on the system. Instead of the AC working around the clock to cool your home, proper ventilation helps the AC work as little as possible.
Create a Healthy Home
The air in your home is often more polluted than the air outside of your home. Without the proper flow of air, this air gets stuck inside your house, which can aggravate allergy and asthma symptoms. By pairing a mechanical ventilation system with an air purifier, it becomes possible to achieve good indoor air quality.
