Ventilation is important to keep fresh air circulating in a space. However, it is important to understand the common myths surrounding ventilation so that you don’t invest in something that you don’t need.
There are some things in life where the phrase “more is better” is perfectly appropriate, however, when it comes to ventilation, this isn’t always the case. It is important that you invest in the right size of ventilation system for the space you have.
By not having sufficient ventilation installed, you may find that the room suffers from moisture problems and poor indoor air quality. However, too many roof vents and your property may become more susceptible to leaks.
It is always advisable to speak to a professional regarding the appropriate amount of ventilation, before investing, as they will be able to advise you how much ventilation you need per square inch of ceiling space.
Many people are under the false impression that by installing ventilation, you remove warm air from a home and consequently cause a lack of efficiency. However, it is poor insulation that is the main culprit when it comes to warmth escaping a property. Additionally, poor installation can allow moisture moisture-laden air into a space which is likely to form condensation, causing further deterioration of the insulation.
It is important to know the difference between air conditioning and ventilation. An air conditioning unit will cool a room by ingesting the air in a room, cooling it, and releasing it back into the space. A ventilation system will mix the inside air with the air outside to improve the air quality of a space and reduce issues such as moisture and mould.
