Having proper ventilation is something that is very important to have in any building. Proper ventilation will help improve the air quality indoors. Having proper ventilation will also be able to control any humidity that comes inside. Here are some of the main reasons why it is so important to make sure that there is proper ventilation in any building.
Within a given day, it is very likely that the indoor humidity increases. If there is indoor humidity, it is very likely that there is also mold inside. High humidity can start to be a problem due to poor construction or a poor design format that is not able to properly control the water management and the air exchange that goes on between indoors and outdoors.
Another reason why it is so important to make sure that there is adequate ventilation indoors is because there can be airborne contaminants coming inside the building. There can be many different chemicals that are used outdoors in construction sites or renovations of buildings that can sneak inside the building. These chemicals can be very dangerous when it comes to carbon monoxide, gas furnaces, gas boilers and gas water heaters. The quality of the air can start to become very harmful when there is any type of chemicals inside the building. Humidity and mold can cause severe health problems on the people that are constantly in that building or that live there. Some of these health problems can include asthma, pneumonia or any sort of illness that involves difficulty breathing.
There are two types of adequate ventilation that can help control any contamination and humidity that goes inside the building. Spot ventilation and dilution ventilation or the perfect ways to help control any harmful air.
Ventilation is usually installed in the bathrooms and the kitchen inside the building. They will help to remove and control the humidity and the carbon monoxide that gets inside. Most fans are also now equipped with self timers which help them control the amount of time that they are running on the day. It is recommended that a bathroom fan is on for about 45 minutes after a shower is completed.
Dilution ventilation is a great way to target the entire building. It is a type of heating and cooling system that uses filtration to ensure that there is a healthy air environment among the entire building.
Having good quality air inside the building is something that is very important in order to live a healthy lifestyle. It is important to take the time to reduce any health risk that can be prevented by installing a good ventilation system in the house or the building. There are now a couple of states that require proper ventilation standards in order to ensure that there is acceptable indoor air quality.
