While most people tend to rely on their HVAC system to provide air circulation in their home, you may want to consider improving your home’s natural ventilation. What exactly does natural ventilation have to offer? According to our window and roof repair experts, natural ventilation offers the following advantages:
The biggest advantage of natural ventilation is a reduction in energy consumption, which leads to lower energy bills. Cool wind flowing in and warm air flowing out of your home through strategically placed windows takes a significant load off your HVAC, resulting in energy savings.
Restoration services experts say that natural ventilation also helps you save on maintenance costs. We’re not just talking about the HVAC, which will suffer from less wear and tear; we’re also talking about furniture and other parts of your home, since natural ventilation helps air out the home. This helps reduce indoor humidity, which in turn reduces the likelihood of mold and mildew growth.
Natural ventilation also improves the indoor air quality of your home. By venting out stale indoor air, natural ventilation removes fumes, spores and other potentially harmful air particles as opposed to recirculating them through your home via the HVAC.
Lower Carbon Footprint
Because natural ventilation reduces the need to rely on your HVAC to keep air circulating, you’re also helping Mother Nature by reducing your household’s carbon emissions. Exterior and gutter repair specialists say that natural ventilation alone can reduce a home’s carbon footprint by 40-50%.
