Improving Ventilation In Your House

November 30, 2023

If your home is well-sealed but you’re beginning to have problems with air quality or a stuffy house, then you probably need to improve ventilation in your residence. Without ventilation, you can end up with harmful gases and chemicals sealed into your house. Furthermore, moisture won’t escape and may result in a mold problem. This means that you could end up with serious consequences to your health. Also, humid air makes your cooling system have to work harder, which will cause it to wear out faster and need repairs.

What Is Proper Home Ventilation?

Professionally installed ventilation systems, such as the ones offered by Colair, Inc. in Mission, Edinburg, and McAllen, bring air into your home with filtration rather than through cracks and leaks. Such systems are designed to prevent too much moisture and to keep the air cleaner.

What Types Of Ventilation Are There?

There are three main types of ventilation:

  • Natural ventilation from windows, doors, and cracks
  • Spot ventilation using exhaust fans
  • Whole-house ventilation with duct systems and fans

Natural ventilation is the easiest, but it can result in problems such as making your air conditioner work harder, thereby raising your electrical bills. Spot ventilation is easy to implement but is less effective than whole-house ventilation.

Ways You Can Help Yourself

There are things you can do on your own to improve air ventilation in your home. Use exhaust fans regularly, such as in the bathroom after a shower or in the kitchen while cooking. When the temperature and humidity outside is right, you can open a window and turn on fans to get air moving. You can also get humidifiers that are easy to set up and will help prevent mold.
You should make sure to take care of water leaks too. They can lead to mold within your walls and insulation.

Turn To Us

The Colair team, Eddie, Joe and others have done an exceptional job. They are servicing both of my AC’s, the one they installed and the one installed by another company. I recently encountered issues with my older unit and they fixed it promptly and discovered it was a design issue with the original install. They came back a couple of days later and fixed the design issue as a more permanent solution.I wish I had called Colair many years ago. They are a great team and I have been very happy with their work. Thanks Colair!

_I was scheduled to have my home's HVAC unit checked out today since I'm on the Colair Preventative Program that entails preventive maintenance twice a year. Raul Martinez was the technician assigned for the job today. Raul was very thorough and checked out both inside and outside units. After completing all the components, Randy was very informative by informing me of the readings or results of all the components evaluated today. It is great to know that my HVAC is running top notch and one thing less to worry about. Raul did want to make me aware of an issue to be concerned about. Raul pointed out that my inside unit was developing a buildup of what seemed to be mold. Raul called a supervisor, Noah Gonzalez, to come by and further evaluate the issue. Noah was able to explain to me that the duct network needed to be checked for efficiency due to the age of the ducts. Noah went up and discovered several areas that were leaking air generated by the unit. Noah showed me pictures of what he discovered. First, he pointed out that the insulation in the attic was ready to be replaced and then Noah showed me the results of the tests conducted on the duct network. Noah made me aware of the positive and negative reasons in addressing and replacing the duct network and insulation in attic. I had been thinking of replacing the ducts, but now I see the time had come. We discussed price, advantages in replacing now instead of later. Overall, I was very pleased with the inevitable.Thank you Raul Martinez and Moah Gonzalez, and Colair for giving me peace of mind and comfort throughout the year. See you in 6 months Colair!
