This week in the Examiner, Kieran McCarthy of KMC Homes discusses the best ventilation systems to employ in your home.
Given that we are still (unfortunately) in the middle of a pandemic one thing we are all becoming much more conscious of is the quality of the air that we breathe. Whether it is opting for country air instead of city air, outdoor air instead of indoor air or longing for better ventilated indoor areas, it’s all up for discussion now.
As it turns out, ventilation of dwellings particularly new builds and deep retrofits of existing houses has advanced considerably even in the last 8-10 years. Much of this has been in conjunction with an improvement in the heat loss control of houses where air leakage (drafts) have been all but eliminated through airtightness measures (placing tapes and membranes to control drafts).
