Air Ventilation

Air Ventilation
  • Opening Intro -

    Have you ever stepped into someone's attic or basement and picked up on that musty, moldy smell?

    Have you ever been in a room without quality air circulation that hasn't been dusted in awhile?


For those of us with dust and mold-related allergies, these situations can be agonizing and embarrassing.  Even for those without such sensitivities, a poorly ventilated area is immediately detectable.

For the sake of your own health and those around you, it’s important to assess your home ventilation system and made improvements accordingly.

Oh the Toxins

We breathe in a large variety of pollutants every day, including:

  • Carbon Dioxide
  • Washing and cooking moisture
  • Volatile cleaner compounds
  • Dust mites
  • Mold particles
  • Dead human skin

Although we can’t avoid breathing in pollutants while we’re out and about, we shouldn’t have to when we’re at home.

Saving on Energy, Cost, and Health

For many, hiding inside your home with the air conditioning at full blast provides relief from those hot, lazy dog days of summer.   The problem with cranking the AC to the max is a financial, environmental, and health problem.

According to the American Lighting Association, replacing your AC with a high-powered house fan can reduce your energy bills by 40% in the summer.  This same house fan can also contribute to a much healthier home ventilation system, expelling the bad air instead of circulating it as air conditioning does.  Attic fans remove the hot air from the attic in summer, cooling the house tremendously.

Adding an exhaust fan or a vent fan to any home can reduce energy bills, improve ventilation, and clear the air for a lifetime of quality air.
