Pillar 2: Ventilate

For Health, Comfort & Fresh Air

Sealing your house is important. And so is proper ven2tilation.

Building science shows that a healthy home needs a certain amount of fresh air exchange to reduce water vapor and prevent mold and mildew. Adequate ventilation helps remove dirty indoor air, replacing it with cleaner outdoor air.

Consider that as much as 40% of the air in your home comes from your crawlspace! Proper ventilation with energy efficient exhaust fans and a heat recovery ventilator (HRV) helps keep the air you’re breathing clean.

Mold, mildew, and musty smells are common in our damp Pacific Northwest climate. This is bad news for those with allergies or other sensitivities.

Many of our customers are pleasantly surprised at the difference a few upgrades to save on energy bills can make on their allergy symptoms.

When you improve ventilation, you will reduce your energy bills, reduce humidity (and mold and mildew), and enjoy some health benefits too.
