Have you walked into a Clayton, GA building and noticed that the air smelled stale or musty? Often, poor ventilation is the cause. Inadequate air exchange results in poor indoor air quality. Ventilation is the exchange of stale indoor air with fresh air from outdoors. Both mechanical and natural means are used to ventilate buildings. Exhaust fans, ceiling fans, and whole house ventilation systems are examples of mechanical ventilation. Natural ventilation is simply opening windows and doors to bring fresh air in.
The “V” in HVAC Stands for Ventilation
Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems play an important role in keeping indoor air fresh and clean. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, ventilation is the most important element of an HVAC system. Poor ventilation can cause significant indoor air quality problems. Proper air exchange dilutes pollutants, expels stale air, and mixes air within a building. In addition, ventilation systems help control humidity and temperature, important elements for indoor comfort in Clayton, GA.
Ventilation Improves Indoor Air Quality
Stale air can include pollutants that affect health. Bacteria, viruses, volatile organic compounds, and smoke are a few common sources that contribute to poor IAQ. High concentrations of these pollutants can cause sore throats, allergies, headaches, or nausea. Controlling moisture reduces organic growth inside your home. Keeping the indoor air fresh is the key to ensuring that you and your loved ones breathe clean air.
