Many homes in Lawrenceville, GA, are tightly sealed in order to avoid unwanted air exchange with the outdoors. While this tight seal may be ideal for your home’s energy-efficiency and temperature control, it’s not so good for the quality of the air. Consider these benefits of bringing fresh air into your home with an inline ventilator.
Understand How an Inline Ventilator Works
An inline ventilator is a type of small fan mounted in your home’s ducts. They’re usually installed in a ceiling or attic segment of the duct. The fan aids with the extraction of stale, polluted air from inside your home. It also helps bring fresh outdoor air into your home. The ventilator is wired directly into your home’s electrical system. They have a relay switch that coordinates with your home’s heating and cooling system.
Remove Indoor Air Pollutants
For the best results, inline ventilators are often placed close to a bathroom or kitchen. Bathrooms and kitchens are the main sources of humidity and particles in your home’s air. The inline ventilators also help pull dust, spores, and pet dander out of your home’s living spaces.
Bring Fresh Air Into Your Home
Inline ventilators have powerful motors. Their high-capacity motors allow them to bring in more fresh air than a typical attic fan or a passive ventilation system. According to the Department of Energy, these supply ventilation systems also provide you with better control of your home’s temperature and humidity levels. The air pulled into your home through the ventilator passes through your HVAC system’s coils, so it is heated or cooled before it enters your living areas. The fresh air is also filtered, so pollen or particles aren’t brought into your home.
