Ventilation in the Home: A Breath of Fresh Air Take a deep breath in. Now breathe out. 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 home needs the same type of circulation for a similar reason: to keep it clear of airborne contaminants? In-home air ventilation products swap poor air for fresh air. It keeps things moving, allowing circulation of indoor air that protects it from becoming stagnant. As simple as it sounds, it’s really important! Experts estimate there are more than 300 chemicals used in those lovely home furnishings you’ve accumulated, from paints and finishes to carpets, wood flooring, insulation and furniture. You held on to 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 reduced amount of airflow, less circulation, and reduced movement. Indoor air can become stale , and contaminants shut into your home. Yeah…sorry to burst the new home bubble, but it is important to find a solution. That’s called ventilation happiness, and Aramendia Plumbing, Heating & Air in San Antonio couldn’t agree more. Here’s a solution: let us install an air ventilation system—like our Heat Recovery Ventilator, which transfers humidity outdoors, and keeps heat from indoor air before it’s discharged.
