What’s an Air Exchanger and What Does it Do for Your Home?
Exchanging air—doesn’t your home do that already, thanks to its ventilation system? If that’s your line of thinking when it comes to air exchangers, we don’t blame you! It’s not every day that homeowners walk around talking about their HVAC systems, after all.
But if you don’t understand what this machine can truly do for your home, you’re missing out on a major comfort-boosting and air-purifying opportunity. Air Comfort Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc., is here to delve deeper into the world of air exchangers and prove how they can radically change your household’s air.
What’s an Air Exchanger?
Simply put, it’s a device that brings fresh air from the outdoors into your home, while simultaneously decreasing your home’s humidity levels. When installed correctly, they’re incredibly energy efficient.
But why on earth would you want one? Sure, fresh air is nice—but what’s so practical about having a machine that brings it into your home?
What Role do Air Exchangers Play?
Homes these days are designed to be energy-efficient, and that’s great! However, it does mean that these homes use a fair bit of insulation, which in turn means that their ventilation systems might not work as efficiently as they could be.
This, of course, means that all the humidity that your day-to-day activities generates
● Mold infestations
● Roof damage from water-filled air rising and being unable to escape your home
● Rooms feeling stuffy and suffocating
● The degradation of expensive hardwood flooring from too much water expansion
In short: disaster! Excessive humidity is one of the best ways to ruin all sorts of assets. With an air exchanger, though, that threat will become a thing of the past, as your humidity levels will be drastically decreased with its presence. When your air is dehumidified, you can breathe a sigh of relief.
