Whole-Home Ventilators Help Remove Airborne Contaminants
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recommends added ventilation of indoor spaces as a practical way to reduce airborne contaminants inside your Alexandria, VA home. Whole-home ventilators can help you improve your indoor air quality while maintaining the energy efficiency of your HVAC system. They do so by by introducing fresh outdoor air into your indoor spaces. Here are three ways in which a whole-home ventilator can help you with indoor air quality management this year.
Reducing the Concentration of Airborne Contaminants
Whole-home ventilators are an excellent way to dilute concentrations of contaminants that may include some or all of the following:
- Particulates, including dust, smoke, lint, and pet dander
- Biological contaminants that may include dust mites, viruses, bacteria, organic growth, and pollen
- Gases and aerosolized chemicals that may include volatile organic compounds, pesticides, personal hygiene products, and cleaning supplies
Investing in a whole-home ventilation system can allow you to enjoy fresher, more breathable air inside your home.
Ensuring Fresher and Healthier Air
The air introduced into your home by your whole-home ventilation system is filtered by your HVAC system before entering your living spaces. This reduces the chance of outdoor contaminants like pollen or smoke entering your home through open windows or doors. This can significantly improve the health of those with allergies or other respiratory ailments.
Along with improved indoor air quality management, whole-home ventilators also offer superior efficiency to keep your utility bills low. The Department of Energy recommends the use of energy recovery whole-home ventilators as a practical way to improve air quality indoors without losing valuable heating and cooling to the outside environment.
