The air inside your home in El Paso, Texas, could be more polluted than the air outside. Modern homes have lots of insulation to increase their efficiency. Unfortunately, it can keep dust, dirt, pet dander, biological growth, pollen and other pollutants indoors along with conditioned air. Using exhaust fans in your bathrooms and kitchen can get rid of some of these contaminants. You can also get an energy recovery ventilator installed by a professional. It removes stale air while keeping your utility bills low and letting your insulation do its job. Here are some of the benefits of using ventilation to improve your indoor air quality:
Fewer Bad Smells
Ventilation helps you remove excess humidity and microorganisms in the air that could lead to biological growth and rotting or musty smells. It can also get rid of smoke, bad scents from cooking, and excess dust in your ductwork that could cause a burning smell when you use your heater.
A Healthier Home
Poor indoor air quality can cause headaches, sore throats, eye irritation, and asthma or allergy symptoms. Ventilation helps you get rid of pollutants. It can also make illnesses like the flu less likely to spread. As a result, it helps keep you and your family healthy.
Lower Maintenance Costs
Without proper ventilation, contaminants could accumulate in your ductwork and the rest of your HVAC system. As a result, they can obstruct airflow and shorten its life. Keeping your indoor air quality high will prevent costly, inconvenient breakdowns. It’ll also extend your heater and air conditioner’s life. Your air filter will last longer, and you won’t have to dust and vacuum as often to keep your home clean.
