Why is good ventilation important? Well, these days, we spend roughly 90% of our time indoors! So indoor air quality has never been more essential. In fact, indoor air pollution can cause greater health risks than outdoor air, even in highly industrial or congested areas. Proper Ventilation actually protects your home from unwanted toxins, pollutants, and odors. It can even help protect the overall structure of your building by eliminating excess moisture from the air. Uncontrolled moisture means higher levels of mold or mildew and more pests, such as dust mites and insects. Happily, you can reduce your utility bills and lower your overall maintenance costs with good ventilation.
