There’s no way around it, proper ventilation within your home is imperative for two main reasons: It provides a way for fresh, new air to enter your living space and a way for old, stale air to exit. Many people will assume that opening a window will do the trick, but the truth is that good indoor air quality can help provide optimum health. Stale air is hard on the lungs, especially if you’re someone who has allergies. Ventilation fans can help–especially Panasonic ventilation fans.
If your home is sealed tight and well insulated from the brisk cold weather or hot outdoors, you will save loads on energy and money. However, if you don’t have a way to cycle the old out, allowing the new to be welcomed with open arms, all of those nasty pollutants will remain indoors such as pet dander, dirt, dust, mold and other germs. These germs won’t have a way to escape so they will just move around your home happily.
If you’re like most people, that simply does not sound appealing. Well, luckily, the use of ventilation fans can save the day. Usually, these types of fans are installed in bathrooms and kitchens to help circulate the air to ensure that moisture (in bathrooms) and smoke (in kitchens) are removed from the area.
If you’re looking to purchase and install a ventilation fan, in order for them to be effective they should:
- Exhaust to the outside. If, for some reason, your fan exhausts to another area in your home, such as an attic or basement, moisture can build up, causing extreme damage.
- Be whisper quiet. A noisy exhaust fan is not enjoyable for anyone in the house, regardless of where it is installed. Think about it: If your Panasonic ventilation fan is LOUD, how likely will you be to use it? Not very.
While having a Panasonic ventilation fan in your bathroom or kitchen is very important, you can also install ventilation fans in your garage. If you park your car in the garage it will naturally release carbon monoxide and other components that should be released to the outdoors–for the safety of you and of those you love. Even if you don’t park your vehicle in your garage, gas-powered equipment like lawn mowers, weed wackers or other landscaping equipment give off carbon monoxide. If there is no way for it to be flushed outdoors, it will enter your home.
Carbon monoxide is an unwanted guest.
