The intensely hot and long summers in Las Vegas, NV overwork your air conditioning system. Even when cooler temperatures arrive, your home can feel stuffy, and the air inside may become stale. Whole-home ventilation systems are a cost-effective and energy-efficient way to improve your home’s indoor air quality and comfort.
Ventilate Stale Air and Odors
Everyday activities, such as showering and cooking, create odors. The stale air in your home smells unpleasant and doesn’t feel good on your skin. Whole-home ventilation systems blow the stale air and odor-causing chemicals out of your home and allow fresh, clean air to enter.
Extract Heat and Humidity
When it’s not hot enough for your air conditioner to cycle, your home may still get uncomfortably warm. Heat from sunlight, cooking, appliances, and your body accumulates, even if the outdoor temperature isn’t too high. Humidity from cooking and showering also increases throughout the day. The upper level of your home could get uncomfortably warm and sticky. Whole-home ventilation systems extract this heat and humidity, so you’ll feel more comfortable.
Promote Better Circulation
Whole-home ventilation systems promote better air circulation. Respiratory droplets from coughing and sneezing will be extracted before you breathe them into your lungs. According to the Centers for Disease Control, better air circulation helps you breathe easier and lowers your risk of respiratory infections. During cold and flu season, better air circulation may lessen your risk of getting sick.
Poor airflow makes your skin feel clammy. When there’s not enough airflow, the heat released by your body stays close to you, so you feel too warm. Inadequate airflow also allows particles and off-gassed chemicals to build up in your home. Whole-home ventilation systems increase airflow. Your skin will feel cooler, even if the air temperature in your home hasn’t changed.
