We all know how the interior of our houses can get during the difficult months. Summer and winter, with their closed and sealed windows and doors, lead to our interior air becoming stale and recycled as it is endlessly recirculated. Quality heating, ventilating, and air conditioning systems can help prevent the problem from becoming unlivable, but there is only so much that a machine can do. The fact is, over those long months, the air in your house will become stale, and only by taking advantage of the milder months to air your place out will that feeling go away.
What many people do not realize is that the stagnant air in a home can become a hazard. Beyond just feeling unpleasant, stale air carries the diseases your household accumulates during the long seasons. In larger office buildings, it’s often refered to as sick building syndrome, and it is a major health concern. The problem increases due to an inadequate HVAC system; damp and dirty ventilation systems are a breeding ground for bacteria. Be sure to get your HVAC serviced regularly, and air your home out when possible, and you’ll be healthier for it.
