Complete Guide to Nursery Ventilation

There’s no doubt that introducing an infant into your household is an exciting experience for everyone involved. However, it is essential that your household has been prepared for this innocent little addition to your home. To help you out, here is a quick guide to proper nursery ventilation and HVAC safety.

Call a Qualified Technician

Proper ventilation throughout your entire home, including your nursery, always begins with your HVAC system. Before your newborn arrives, reach out to a qualified technician to have a basic equipment check completed, which will ensure the proper operation of the system and identify any potential problems.

Thoroughly Clean Ductwork and Vents

If either your home’s ductwork or vents are filled with debris, this could be harmful to your child because of various contaminants that may enter the nursery. Prior to your newborn arriving at your home, be sure that both of these areas have been cleaned so that the ventilation and air quality are both top-notch.

Switch to a Smart Thermostat

Since an infant is more prone to temperature fluctuations than adults, it’s important to maintain control over the nursery’s thermostat setting. Plus, keeping the temperature between 68 and 72 degrees Fahrenheit is said to help prevent SIDS from occurring. A smart thermostat will be more effective in keeping your child both comfortable and safe.

Don’t Put the Crib Near Your Vents

Even if you’ve achieved proper ventilation by cleaning out the vents, you definitely don’t want air to constantly be blowing onto your child. Infants are fragile and this could cause him or her to get sick. The easiest way to avoiding problems is by moving the crib away from any vents. If that isn’t possible, then direct the vents away from the crib.
