5 Ways to Freshen Your Home's Air

Posted on 03/27/2024

According to ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers), there are several effective methods to enhance ventilation for improved air circulation in your home:

Let Fresh Air In

One way to improve air circulation at home is to open windows and doors to let fresh air in and stale air out. This can help keep the indoor air feeling fresh and clean.

Use Fans

Another method is to use fans or blowers to help move air around. Fans can push out old air from places like bathrooms and kitchens and bring in fresh air from outside.

Ventilation Systems

Some homes have special ventilation systems. These systems use fans to bring in fresh air and push out stale air. They can also help save energy by keeping the indoor temperature comfortable.

Problem Areas 

Certain areas in the home, like bathrooms and kitchens, can have more pollutants in the air. Installing fans in these places can help remove bad smells and keep the air cleaner.

Smart Controls

Some ventilation systems come with smart controls that can adjust the airflow based on factors such as the number of people in the house or the cleanliness of the outdoor air. This helps maintain healthy indoor air quality without using too much energy.

Implementing these ventilation strategies can enhance air circulation, reduce indoor air pollutants, and create a healthier and more comfortable living environment in your home.
