Proper ventilation and air circulation keeps the air fresh and healthy indoors. Like the lungs, homes need to be able to breathe and to achieve this you will need to have good circulation and ventilation. Air indoors can build up high levels of moisture, odors, gases, dust, and other air pollutant. To keep the air safe indoors, the air needs to be circulated and filtered.
Indoor spaces need to be able to move enough air to provide that crucial circulation. For almost all homes, open windows and HVAC systems can circulate enough air for a safe environment. Some sources, such as stoves and bathrooms, need special venting that can remove the pollution they produce.
Ventilation and circulation help to reduce indoor air pollution, but it works best if paired with keeping known sources of air pollution out of the building. Outdoor air can also bring pollution indoors as well, so taking steps to reduce outdoor air pollution is important as well. This can be done with installing the correct filters and servicing your HVAC system regularly.
