What Rooms in Your Home Require More Ventilation?

April 5, 2019

Ventilation and AC are essential for all homes. Poor ventilation could result in your home acquiring a bad musty smell, which is also the sign of a breeding ground for bacteria, allergens, and mold. Proper ventilation also prevents the accumulation of harmful gases such as carbon monoxide.

Poor ventilation forces gases to be entrapped within your home. Inhaling such vapors or coming into contact with them may affect your general health. These gases may also raise your home temperature, thereby forcing the AC to do extra work. This ends up increasing your power bills.

When it comes to home ventilation, no company does it better in Denver, CO, than Cooper Heating & Cooling. Of course, some areas need more ventilation than others. This depends on the number of gases or activities done in these rooms.

Kitchen

In most kitchens, there is burning going on. Carbon Monoxide is a common by-product of burnt gas. Allowing the said gas to accumulate in your kitchen, mostly when you are cooking, could be fatal in extreme cases. Carbon monoxide more commonly causes nausea.

It is therefore important to ensure the gas is properly ventilated as soon as it is produced. Ventilation in the kitchen should thus be more prevalent compared to other rooms. This also prevents the kitchen from becoming damp and destroying your food.

Bathroom

Showering with hot water produces a lot of steam. A lot of water is used in bathrooms. If this water is allowed to sit around for long, it makes the bathroom damp.

This decreases the quality of air in the bathroom and also decreases your comfort. It is therefore important to have proper ventilation in your bathroom.

Attics/Basement/Pantry

Poor ventilation in the attic causes accumulation of hot gases, which confuses the home AC. This forces it to cool rooms more instead of maintaining the required temperature.

Basements are known to be generally damp areas. Proper ventilation prevents this from happening and also prevents mold from growing. Proper ventilation in your pantry will prevent food from going bad.
