Ventilation is important in every household. This is because gases from combustion appliances like stoves can stay inside the house and pose risk to our family's health. More so, it can also threaten the safety of your house like being a source of fire. Lastly, it can damage the make-up of your house as gases can be harmful to insulation systems.
Ventilation is the exchange of indoor and outdoor air. This can be achieved through a natural method. This involves the opening of windows and doors through which indoor air can go out and outer air can get in. Some create holes or cracks on their walls to make this possible.
Ventilation can also be achieved through the use of exhaust fans. These fans are usually in kitchens where spot ventilation is required particularly when the area gets hot when you are cooking. Range hoods are additional items which can keep the ventilation going in your kitchen. Bathrooms compose another part of the house which would require proper ventilation. These small confined spaces can get well-ventilated using exhaust fans.
When natural and spot ventilation don't work, whole-house ventilation is advised. This is accomplished with the installation of more fans and duct systems. These are helpful when the indoor air gets stagnant inside and there is no other way to get them out and be replaced with fresh air from outside. With a ventilation system, a uniform exchange of indoor and outdoor air can be attained in a controlled manner. This can be cost more though compared to the two other options.
