Breathe Easy: Simple Ways to Bring Fresh Air into Your Home

At AARD Mechanical Air and Heating, we understand the importance of maintaining a comfortable and healthy environment in your home. But did you know that good indoor air quality (IAQ) goes beyond just temperature control? Proper ventilation, which involves bringing in fresh outdoor air and removing stale indoor air, is crucial for your health and well-being.
Here, we’ll explore some simple and effective ways to improve ventilation in your home:

Natural Ventilation:

Open those windows! This is the easiest and most cost-effective way to bring in fresh air. Open windows on opposite sides of your house to create a cross breeze that efficiently removes stale air. Aim for at least 15-30 minutes of ventilation several times a day, weather permitting.
Harness the power of doors. Opening an exterior door while keeping windows opposite it open creates a strong airflow. This is a great option for quickly airing out a stuffy room.
Don’t forget the attic! Proper attic ventilation helps regulate temperatures and prevents moisture build-up. Ensure your attic vents are clear and functioning correctly.

Mechanical Ventilation:

Exhaust fans are your friends! Install and use exhaust fans in bathrooms and kitchens to remove moisture, pollutants, and cooking odors directly to the outdoors.
Consider a whole-house ventilation system. For a more comprehensive solution, consider an Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV) or Heat Recovery Ventilator (HRV). These systems continuously bring in fresh air, pre-conditioning it with outgoing air to maintain a comfortable temperature and humidity level in your home.

Bonus Tips:

Change air filters regularly. Clean air filters in your HVAC system allow for optimal airflow and capture dust particles, which can improve air quality.
Invest in air purifiers. Air purifiers can be particularly helpful for people with allergies or those living in areas with high pollution levels.
