Make Sure Your Home Gets the Best Air Circulation Possible

Good indoor air circulation is vital to maintaining healthy indoor air quality (IAQ). For example, air movement helps prevent moisture buildup that promotes mold, which is an indoor health hazard common in homes on the Treasure Coast. Further, circulating indoor air regularly helps improve comfort and can even help reduce your energy bills. Here’s what to know about getting the air flowing in your home.

Ceiling Fans Work Wonders

Did you know ceiling fans can save energy by creating a wind-chill effect to help you feel five degrees cooler on warm days? On cooler days, reverse the direction of ceiling fans to promote air circulation to distribute heated airflow more evenly.

Open Doors and Windows

During the winter, while households in most other parts of the country are hunkering down to stay warm, South Florida residents are experiencing mostly beautiful weather and mild temperatures. So, open up your windows and doors to allow cross breezes in your home. Make sure your screens don’t have any tears or holes so you can keep insects out.

Exhaust Fans

Showering and cooking can create excess moisture in your bathrooms and kitchen. As you know, too much moisture invites mold and mildew. You don’t want that. Run exhaust fans when cooking and bathing and for five or 10 minutes following cooking and bathing to make sure the air is clear.

Window Fans

Window fans work most effectively when they’re positioned to push air out of the home. Open additional windows to create an air-freshening cross breeze to bring in fresh air faster.

Energy-Recovery Ventilation Systems

Whole-home energy recovery ventilators (ERVs) provide mechanical ventilation that effectively circulates air throughout your home. ERVs use two fans and a heat exchanger to replenish indoor air and help manage indoor humidity. ERVs may utilize air ducts that are already installed, which helps reduce installation costs. Or, your HVAC technician can install dedicated ductwork for purposes of ventilation and air circulation.
