I recently had some major problems with air quality in our home. Because it was in the middle of December, with outside temperatures well below freezing, there was no chance of opening the windows. I’ve caulked, weatherstripped, insulated and taken every precaution to seal the beach house slim and prevent energy waste. Unfortunately, our efforts have also eliminated ventilation. Contaminants are trapped inside, circulated continually by the gas furnace and breathed by our family. Despite correctly vacuuming, scrubbing, dusting and mopping, there was still a fantastic deal of debris floating around in the air and accumulating on surfaces. Even decreasing the air filter in the heating idea and having the component professionally cleaned did not resolve the problem. I distraught that the abundance of dust, unpleasant smells and other allergens were a health threat. After researching all different types of air quality accessories, I decided to invest in a heat reusey ventilator. The component installed into the heating idea and provides a steady influx of fresh air without energy waste. The ventilator draws stale air out of the house, using it to preheat the fresh, incoming air. Not only do I get all the benefits of opening a window, the ventilation idea reduces the workload of the gas furnace. I’ve seen a significant reduction in our biweekly energy costs. Plus, our beach house feels fresher, cleaner and far more comfortable, the ventilator runs quietly, efficiently and only requires maintenance once per year. I leave it running 24/7, and looking forward to further benefits this warm season. Because the ventilator helps with excess heat and humidity, it will lessen demand on the air conditioner, saving money and improving comfort.
