An Introduction to Whole House Ventilation Systems

By in

Customer demand for whole house ventilation systems is on the rise for several reasons, some of which include code changes and a desire for something better than small exhaust fans. If you’re considering one of these systems, contact us for more information to be sure you get the one that meets your needs and budget.

The purpose of a whole house ventilation system is to maintain indoor air quality. Ventilation is accomplished by exchanging the air indoors with that of the outdoors. In other words, removing stale, stuffy, moist or odor-ridden air in a home with fresh outdoor air is the ultimate goal of these systems.

If you already have exhaust fans or a forced-air heating and air conditioning system in your home, you’re off to a good start. Most whole house ventilation systems rely on these, they are less expensive and are equipment that is familiar to builders and homeowners. The fans can be adapted for whole-house ventilation; however, this type of setup is not ideal for all parts of the country. In fact, supply ventilation systems or balanced heat-recovery ventilation systems may make more sense than exhaust or forced-air systems. Your Glenwood Springs air conditioning experts can help you determine what type of system is best for your home.

If you have a whole-house ventilation system, you should know it’s there and running in the background. If you notice any unusual noises, drafts or extreme increases to your energy bill, get it checked out by a professional Aspen air conditioning expert. Do not disable your system, as that can cause a deterioration in your indoor air quality, resulting in further, more extensive and expensive problems.
