If you’re considering a home ventilation system to help reduce allergy symptoms, you may be interested in what such a system entails.
Generally, home ventilation systems are installed in your roof space and draw in air from two key areas:
- The roof space (this has warm, dry air)
- The outside of your home
Home ventilation systems will filter the incoming air to take out toxins, and specifically for those suffering from allergies – elements such as pollen or dust mites.
Avoiding moisture in the home
One of the best ways to reduce allergy symptoms when ventilating your home is considering how you can reduce the moisture in your home. This is really key in rooms such as your kitchen and bathroom.
- In the kitchen you should always try to turn on your exhaust fan when cooking. This helps to reduce the amount of moisture in the air, especially taking away steam produced from boiling water and saucepans on the stove.
- In your bathroom, it’s really important to avoid mould growth as much as possible. Always make sure that your bathroom is well ventilated. This could be small measures such as opening a window after you have showered, or running your bathroom fan for a period of time after showering. If you do have a bathroom fan, always make sure it is vented to outside so that moisture is expelled.
Maintaining ventilation systems
Whichever ventilation system you choose – whether it’s as simple as a basic fan or as advanced as the Odyssey home ventilation system, you need to make sure that you maintain them to ensure they work as efficiently as possible.
Make sure you check your ventilation systems regularly to avoid build up of dirt or dust. Your ventilation systems will work best and for long periods of time without needing replacement when they are well maintained and monitored.
