Ventilation and air exchange at your home

Ventilation and air exchange in indoor spaces.

 

Ventilation:

In modern times, fresh and clean air in the living space has become an indispensable factor for ensuring daily well-being and comfort. One of the most effective ways to ensure optimal air quality is through air ventilation. Ventilation systems not only refresh the air but also maintain an appropriate level of humidity, protecting the living space from mold and dust.

Considering that a significant part of a person’s daily life is spent indoors, and concentration is required for everyday tasks, maintaining the circulation of fresh air is crucial. Ventilation is becoming increasingly relevant in both new construction and renovation projects. New buildings are constructed according to higher insulation and energy efficiency standards, making the presence of air ventilation an essential standard requirement. With the help of ventilation, not only in new projects but also in other buildings, it is possible to eliminate CO2 emissions, particulate matter, unpleasant odors, as well as moisture that cannot be naturally purified.

 

Indoor air circulation:

The indoor microclimate significantly affects human health, well-being, and productivity. People usually don’t immediately notice good indoor air quality but rather experience its consequences if the air quality deteriorates, such as fatigue, excessive tiredness, loss of concentration, and other symptoms that can contribute to respiratory and cardiovascular diseases in the long term. The quantity of outdoor air CO2 emissions, as a result of industrial pollution and transportation emissions, can also negatively impact indoor air quality.

Often, CO₂ concentration, human-exhaled microbes, and household chemicals contribute to indoor air pollution. To ensure high-quality air indoors, regular air exchange is necessary. Air exchange in indoor spaces, facilitated by trickle vents, is an effective and convenient way to regulate the inflow of fresh air, promoting a favorable indoor environment.

 

Air intake into living spaces:

In apartments, a common issue is the supply of fresh air, as changing apartment doors or windows may not ensure proper air circulation. Air exchange is particularly important at night, as each person spends an average of 7-8 hours sleeping to ensure well-being. During this time, microbes accumulate in the air of enclosed spaces, and the concentration of CO2 often exceeds permissible norms.

A substantial portion of the real estate properties in ex-soviet countries consists of multi-apartment buildings constructed before 1993. During this period, these buildings were designed and built with natural ventilation systems, intending to allow fresh air inflow through window gaps.

Ventilation problems arise when old windows are replaced with new (PVC, wood, or aluminum) windows with strong sealing. The new window structures are more airtight, thus hindering the circulation of fresh air in the rooms. Often, people may not notice that the use of new windows does not ensure air circulation or only become aware of it when mold appears on the window frame. To ensure fresh air exchange, it is recommended to add Ventsys trickle vents which will, provide a controlled inflow of fresh air indoors. Ventsys trickle vents can be installed in the new windows which hasn’t been installed at home yet, or they can be added to already installed windows in a building, allowing the preservation of fresh air circulation.

Ventilation is a regular and controlled supply of fresh air and its exchange in indoor spaces to maintain the desired air quality. The ventilation system allows you to control the desired amount of air quality indoors, ensuring a healthy microclimate.
