Carrier® HVAC systems help efficiently regulate temperature levels inside the home, keeping everyone nice and comfortable. However, for a truly complete home comfort solution, it’s important to pay attention to your ventilation as well. Residential ventilation systems are usually not as complex as their commercial counterparts, but they’re just as important. Unfortunately, many homeowners still make ventilation mistakes when operating their heating and cooling units.
Let our HVAC professionals at Bartlett walk you through a few of the most common problems people face with faulty ventilation and what you can do about them.
Your choice of duct style, materials and construction all play a big role in maintaining proper air circulation within your Carrier HVAC system. While it may not seem like creases, wrinkles and other physical deformities would cause major issues, they can have an effect on how smoothly air flows through your duct network. Have your technician straighten out any visible issues to ensure maximum circulation at all times.
At 100% relative humidity, the air becomes oversaturated with water vapor and condensation occurs. This is typically not a big deal within ventilation ducts, but the extra moisture can promote the growth and spread of mold, which means increased health risks for you and your family. You can avoid condensation problems by insulating exhaust and supply vents going into and out of your system; you don’t necessarily need to insulate the entire network.
Indoor Air Quality
Ventilation is also a great way to avoid having your Carrier HVAC system circulate stale air within your home. With a proper outside source of fresh air, you can keep the indoor air quality of your home at an optimal level.
