Ways to Increase the Ventilation in Your House
The quality of the air inside your home is influenced by the level of ventilation. Proper ventilation also reduces the risk of mildew or mold that can grow due to too much moisture in the air. If you want to learn how to improve your home’s ventilation, there are a few important tips to follow.
Install Additional Vents on the Roof
The attic can become hot and humid during the summer season. This can cause the HVAC system to work harder than necessary to operate. If you want to have more control over the climate in the building, install additional vents on the roof at the eaves and the ridge of the roof with the help of a professional. All of the screens and vents need to be painted to protect the materials and prevent them from deteriorating when exposed to the elements in each season.
Add Vents on the Foundation
The foundation is a common area that can lack proper ventilation, which can lead to a moist area that rots the crawlspace. Professionals can add extra vents to prevent the space from becoming damp. The vents can be maintained similarly to how you maintain any vents on the roof.
Use an Exterior-Venting Exhaust Fan
Proper ventilation in the house requires the use of an exterior-venting exhaust fan to remove excess moisture and doors that are present. The exhaust units that are needed include laundry exhaust fans and an exterior-venting range hood. Exterior-venting exhaust fans are ideal for kitchens that are prone to smell and can be covered in grease from cooking to ensure that the air is thoroughly cleaned. You’ll also need to clean the filters every three months to ensure that they can continue to operate well while collecting grease in the air.
