What is Balanced Ventilation?

Most HVAC systems in a home operate on a supply- or exhaust-based system. The issue with this is that when the air is constantly coming from only one source, it’s subject to more pollution. It’s commonly believed that the air in a home that uses these types of systems, can have air that’s up to 10 times more polluted than the air outside. We receive many health benefits from the filtration systems our HVAC systems provide, and a balanced ventilation system provides even more. All Temp Co., Inc. is happy to provide you with more information on balanced ventilation to see if it’s something that would benefit your family.

How a Balanced Ventilation System Provides Cleaner Air

With a balanced ventilation system, the outdoor air that enters into the home is kept at the same rate as the dirty air that’s pushed out of the home. Typically, operating from the attic, the system results in an even exchange and provides much cleaner air in the home. An easy way to picture this would be from cross-ventilation by opening our windows on both sides of the home. The flow of air is constant and provides the benefits that we get from our traditional HVAC system at the same time.

Who Benefits From Balanced Ventilation?

This type of ventilation is especially useful for homes with children, seniors, and anyone that suffers from breathing problems from asthma or allergy symptoms. It works well to remove humidity from homes, so households in areas particularly susceptible to mold also benefit from these systems.
