Summer is the perfect season for having fun, planning trips to the beach with your family or taking long road trips with friends. But while it may seem like this season is all fun and games, you still have to watch out for your home.
One of the most important things you can do during the summer is to improve the air circulation and ventilation in your home. Otherwise, it will get stuffy and uncomfortable for everyone. Your utility bill may even see a spike due to the effort your home has to make to cool it down.
In this post, door company Comfort King Windows and Doors discusses the various things you can do to improve air circulation and ventilation around your home. Thankfully, there are severals ways to do this.
Running fans is the best way to improve air circulation and ventilation in your home. This is because both traditional fans and ceiling fans allow for the continuous circulation of air, enabling you to enjoy the same level of comfort without sacrificing energy efficiency. Exhaust fans, on the other hand, work in reverse; they draw air and moisture out of the home, improving ventilation by removing humid, stale or contaminated air from your home and creating a safe breathing environment for your household.
Proper attic ventilation ensures stagnant air doesn’t become trapped in your attic, penetrating your attic floor and making your home uncomfortable for the rest of the season.
Open Windows and Doors
Any competent door installation company would also recommend opening your windows and doors for at least 30 minutes every day to improve the air in your home. This simple solution allows you to air out your home and replace the stale indoor air with fresh air free of pollutants, allergens and moisture.
Home Ventilation System
A good home ventilation system that’s properly installed can help provide quality ventilation for your home regardless of the weather. These ventilation systems can help replace your home’s stale air with fresh, dry air to create a healthier, drier living environment for your household.
Ventilating the rooms around your home is a fairly simple task: just leave the windows slightly ajar overnight so the air quality will be improved. This will also allow for the reduction of excess moisture and mold growth. Be careful doing this during the winter, however, as heat may escape from your home in the process.
