Importance Of Proper Ventilation In Your Home To Improve Air Quality

Air Quality

Clean, healthy air is necessary and one of the places you should always be able to trust the air quality is within your home. One of the ways you can ensure quality air is through proper ventilation. The experts at Art Plumbing, Air Conditioning & Electric explain the importance of good ventilation for optimum air quality at home.

Improving The Air Quality In Your Home

“Ventilation” is a word you’ll hear a lot when it comes to air quality. This term refers to how fresh air is allowed to flow freely in a particular space. While having a well-maintained HVAC system improves air quality, there are plenty of other ways you can ventilate your home:

Use HVAC Filters

Air conditioners use filters that trap various particles that you don’t want to breathe in, such as dirt or dust. These are especially helpful for people with asthma, but they also help prevent respiratory disorders. ​​​​​​It’s important to make sure that these filters are installed properly in order for them to be effective.

Regular maintenance from electricians like Art Plumbing, Air Conditioning & Electric can not only make sure that the HVAC system is working properly but also that high-quality filters are being used for maximum efficiency. It’s advisable to change these filters every 1 – 3 months; otherwise, they will circulate dirty air throughout the home.

Use Exhaust Fans In The Kitchen And Bathroom

Exhaust fans often get used in the kitchen when something in the oven is producing smoke, to avoid setting off the smoke alarm. In the bathroom, they tend to get used when someone leaves an unpleasant smell. However, you can also use exhaust fans for ventilating the air in your home so air particles don’t stay concentrated in just one room.

Move Air Particles With Fans

Electric fans are another helpful way to improve air ventilation and keep the air flowing in your home. Ceiling fans do this best, but a portable fan can also be effective: especially if you run a fan in the kitchen or bathroom, where an exhaust fan is also running.
