How to Improve Home Ventilation


Home ventilation is an extremely important subject. Poor ventilation could result in mould, bad smells and other issues that can impact you and your family. This article looks at how to improve ventilation in your home. Read on to find out more!

Install bathroom extractor fans

Extractor fans are generally placed in the bathroom to remove unwanted moisture. The fans are connected to the house's ducting system that transports moist air to an outside wall or roof space. The more extractor fans you have connected to your ducting system, the greater the airflow rate will be inside your home.

Install ceiling or wall fans

Ceiling and wall fans are most commonly used in the home to cool down an area. They are connected to the house's electrical wiring system, which runs throughout your home. When the fan is turned on, it will help to create air convection currents to aid ventilation while also helping you to save money on cooling costs.

Install an air-conditioning unit

An air-conditioning unit can be installed in the living room to cool or warm up an entire room. An air-conditioning unit can also help to keep air circulating around a room. However, to get the most out of your air conditioning unit, you should keep doors and windows closed while it is in operation.

Install exhaust hoods in the kitchen

When preparing food, there should always be adequate exhaust for cooking fumes. Gas stoves should be installed with chimneys venting into an outside wall or roof space. Directly above your gas or electric stove, you should also have a vent connected to the house's ducting system, drawing out odours and heat generated by cooking. 

Install wall vents

Air is drawn into the wall vents through ducting that is connected directly to the house's ducting system. The vents rely on natural airflow from the exterior of your property.

Install an air filter unit

Choose an air filter unit with a high-efficiency particulate air filter that removes most airborne pollutants such as dust, pollen, dust mites and pet dander from the air, keeping indoor air quality high. The fan within the filter will help to ventilate your home while also improving air quality.

If you would like to find out more, you should contact a local home ventilation contractor today. They will be happy to assess your home before recommending the type of work that will help improve the ventilation.
