WHAT IS VENTILATION?
Ventilation is the process of moving clean air into a space and removing the stale air. Ventilation is critical to increasing home comfort and reducing the effects of air pollutants on you and your family’s health. In general, ventilation must happen in the right areas in a home for ideal indoor air quality and increased efficiency.
IMPORTANT AREAS OF THE HOME FOR VENTILATION
Proper ventilation is needed here to prevent damp, humid air from damaging your home’s insulation.
If the hot air that arises cannot escape your home, then the living space underneath the attic will become uncomfortably warm.
Ventilation in the roof will allow hot air to escape the home to maintain cooler temperatures throughout.
WHY IS VENTILATION IMPORTANT?
Ventilation controls the amount of moisture that lingers in your home. Generally speaking, your home will stay dry if you have adequate airflow throughout your home. If moisture builds up in your walls and floors, this may cause mold to build up and destroy the structural integrity of your home.
