Why is Ventilation Important?

In urban areas, the majority of people’s daily activities takes place indoors. This makes the atmosphere inside of homes have a major impact on the health and safety of the majority of the population. Studies have also shown that indoor air pollution actually has more damaging effects on health than pollution outside.

Good ventilation protects your home from damage by eliminating excess moisture from the air. Too much moisture rots window sills, peels paint and attracts insect infestation. Damp insulation in walls means potential destructive mold growth. Carpeting, wall-paper, electronic items and furniture can be damaged by excessive moisture, thus organized ventilation is required.

Effect of Good Ventilation

Evacuating allergens

Allergens such as pollen, dust, and other irritants can become trapped and concentrated inside of a home when ventilation is inadequate. Proper ventilation helps reduce allergy symptoms, making the indoor air much more comfortable for allergy sufferers.

Moisture control

Ventilation is also important because it controls how much moisture remains in your home. Wooden elements can rot when exposed to moisture, as can drywall. When moisture builds up in these areas of your home, it increases the risk of damaging the structural integrity, and also allows mould to build up. Mould, in turn, can have a number of negative effects on your health if you are exposed to it for a long time.

Protect Respiratory Health

Damp conditions can contribute to the development of asthma and other respiratory conditions. They can also form a perfect environment for dust mites to survive and multiply. Good ventilation can help to prevent these issues while supplying home inhabitants with fresh air.

Reduced VOC concentrations with ventilation

VOCs, or volatile organic compounds, are emissions from household chemicals and furnishings that can become toxic in high concentrations. Maintaining adequate ventilation can help to control concentrations of existing VOCs within a home, as it is nearly impossible to eliminate VOCs from indoor air.

So what Can you do?

The first option is to have natural ventilation. This is when air enters your home through windows, doors, and even opening in the walls.

A second alternative is to create airflow. This is when you use exhaust fans or other forms of pushing air in or out of your house in certain spots. Typically, people has an exhaust fan over the stove or in the bathroom.

The third and more sophisticated alternative is installing air ducts around your whole home to provide airflow throughout.
