Easy Ways to Ventilate Your Home

Imagine being stuck in a large box with no windows, vents, or other openings. Sounds terrible, right? Well if you’re not allowing air to flow into and out of your home, that’s basically what you’re living in. The good news is that there are plenty of easy ways to ventilate your home and keep your air fresh and clean.

Open Your Windows

This is may sound so simple, but a lot of homeowners don’t open their windows for fear that they’ll let conditioned air out. But air needs to be able to circulate your home; otherwise, it becomes stale and dry. Every day, open your windows for just 10 minutes — that’s enough time for inside air to be replaced by fresh outdoor air.

Use Your Fans

When you’re cooking, use your exhaust fan, and do the same when you shower. Those fans get rid of food odors and excess moisture that common household activities put into the air. If you don’t use your fans, your home could feel moist and smell like last week’s Salmon — and nobody wants that.

Clean Your Air Ducts

Your ducts are responsible for taking air to and from different locations in your home. If they’re full of dust and other debris, they won’t be able to help circulate or ventilate the air in your home. Plus, dirty air ducts can lead to pressure buildup, which can be very dangerous to your HVAC system and home.
