If you walk into your Williamsport, MD home only to breathe in a stale, stinky, or musty odor, you might be wondering what you can do to improve the indoor air quality. Whole-home ventilators bring outdoor air into your home, which could help you breathe easier and feel more comfortable. Let’s take a look at the many ways whole-home ventilators help keep your home’s air fresh.
Cooking, cleaning, and engaging in certain hobbies releases volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in your home, explains the EPA. These chemicals often have strong, lingering odors. Breathing VOCs may cause respiratory problems, and they often trigger allergy or asthma attacks. Whole-home ventilators remove VOCs from your home’s air quickly. We recommend keeping the ventilation system on while engaging in any activities that create droplets, aerosols, or fumes.
Eliminate Odor-Causing Chemicals
If you’ve ever walked into a home and immediately realized that the household included a dog or cat, you know the power of odor-causing chemicals. Whole-home ventilators remove the odor-causing chemicals released by pets. They also get rid of musty smells, odors from cooking, and other sources. By quickly bringing fresh, odor-free air into your home, the ventilation system makes your home’s air more pleasant.
Decrease Airborne Contaminants
All homes contain some airborne contaminants. Your skin naturally sheds all the time, and this creates dust that feeds dust mites. Dust mite waste becomes airborne and triggers allergy and asthma attacks. Bacteria, viruses, and other forms of organic growth also contaminate the air in many homes. Whole-home ventilators decrease the concentration of airborne contaminants in your home. They may lower your risk of spreading germs from one household member to the next. You may also experience fewer allergy and asthma symptoms after using these indoor air quality products.
