People in the US, on average, spend about 90 percent of their time indoors.
Inside their homes, at work, in cafés, restaurants, and other businesses.
This is why it is very important to ensure your business, home, or both have good ventilation. It helps with keeping health risks at bay, controls energy consumption, creates a more comfortable environment, and protects the structure from foundational damage.
If you are looking for a local contractor in your area to help you set up a good ventilation system, Hynes Roofing & Siding can help. And here are some reasons why good ventilation should be on the top of your home/business renovation list.
1: Good Ventilation Helps Reduce Condensation
When humid air cools quickly, moisture in the form of water vapour is released in the air. The moisture settles on cold surfaces and condenses. When this happens over a long period of time, it leads to peeling paint and wallpaper, mildew and mild, and even structural changes to the wood. Good ventilation can help tackle these problems by regulating temperature and moisture and keeping the structure safe.
2: Good Ventilation Preserves Energy
Too much airflow into your house, or even too little, can end up costing you a lot in energy consumption. To avoid the extra heating, cooling, dehumidifying needs of your home or business, a good ventilation system is important. Our experts at Hynes Roofing & Siding can help you with a FREE estimate, good advice and the best quality material for the job.
3: Good Ventilation Lowers Concentration of Radon
Radon is a gaseous by-product of the natural decay or Uranium and has been linked to some cases of lung cancer. It is found in certain parts of the country and your home in one of them, the lack of adequate ventilation would lead to the gas being trapped inside causing its concentration to increase. A good ventilation system can help reduce Radon concentration to a level that is healthy and safe for your family.
4: Good Ventilation Helps With Allergen Filtration
Pollen, dust, or other irritants that can trigger allergic reactions are better filtered out when your home or business is equipped with a good ventilation system. Not only will this make the indoors more comfortable for those with allergies, but also help make you more comfortable.
5: Good Ventilation Prevents Backdrafting
When the air pressure inside your home or business is lower than the air pressure outside, a negative pressure builds indoors which pulls the outside air in. This is called backdrafting. Backdrafting can be very dangerous because it can pull back large amounts of carbon monoxide through your chimney or other openings and lead to a dangerous level of concentration of the gas. Good ventilation systems can help you prevent this.
