Ventilation and Energy Efficiency

The point of energy efficiency is not just about saving money. It is also about conserving enough energy to protect human health, assure comfort and protect your home. The flow of air helps to rid your home of pollutants, gases, particles and odors but air can also get stuck, causing drafty walls and humidity levels. That is why it is so important to have good ventilation.

Ventilation plays a large part in determining the air quality in your house. It’s primary function is to replace stale indoor air with fresh air from outdoors. Ventilation can occur naturally through having open windows and a phenomena called the stack effect, but often times it is necessary to aid the process with fans and ventilation strategies.   

Fan ducts, dampers, control systems, filters and vents are all key components to a ventilation system and to ensuring proper ventilation in your home. Ventilation systems can be categorized as one of four types: exhaust, supply, balanced, and heat-recovery. American Spring has many years of experience providing the installation of ventilation systems and the diagnostic skills necessary to identify and fix any issues with your home's current ventilation.
