There are positives and negatives to having a well-sealed home in Martinsburg, WV. On the one hand, it increases the effectiveness and efficiency of your heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system. On the other, it often hampers the circulation of air inside a home. This can lead to stuffy and stagnant air. Thankfully, there are products available that can help air circulation problems in your home.

Your HVAC System’s Fan

One of the easiest and most effective ways to circulate air in your house is with your own HVAC system. Even if the temperature inside your house is comfortable, you don’t need to heat or cool your house to use the HVAC system to circulate air. Instead, you can simply set your system to the fan option. This option will take the interior air, pass it through the filter system, and clean it before putting it back out into the house.

Exhaust Fans

The kitchen and the bathroom are the two most important rooms in the house for ventilation. These are the rooms where the most heat and humidity tend to accumulate. Exhaust fans work in a similar fashion to how window fans work but in reverse. Instead of blowing air into a room, exhaust fans pull damp air and moisture up and force it outside. By doing so, exhaust fans make sure that humidity can’t take over a house, and they also help remove contaminants from the air.

Attic Fans and Vents

While it’s often overlooked, it’s important that you don’t forget your attic when you’re working to circulate air throughout your home. A whole house ventilation system is an ideal option for improving your indoor air quality. This works by having attic fans that pull out the indoor air and replace it with fresh air from outside.

However, fans aren’t the only option when it comes to attic ventilation. You can also have a ridge vent or gable vent installed if your home doesn’t already have one. Attic vents help improve circulation in the attic by allowing the wind to push the air around.

Dehumidifiers and Humidifiers

Humidity or lack of humidity can also be an issue with your home’s air quality and circulation. If your home has too much or too little moisture in the air then you might want to consider adding a humidifier or dehumidifier. A humidifier will add moisture back into the air while a dehumidifier will pull moisture out of the air. Both systems will filter the air as they’re running and both will also aid in air circulation.

Ceiling Fans

Ceiling fans are an ideal way to circulate air in individual rooms. They are both functional and attractive and they make sure that air is always circulating properly in your house. Additionally, you can run ceiling fans at the same time you’re running your HVAC system to help the air circulate better between higher and lower zones in your house and help the air reach all the rooms in your house.

Doors and Windows

While it seems too simple to work properly, opening your doors and windows is actually an easy way to circulate air throughout the house. Obviously, this solution isn’t without its drawbacks though. First, you don’t want the weather outside to be too hot or too cold because this will affect the comfort inside your home.

Also, you need some way to make sure pests can’t get inside, and you certainly can’t leave windows and doors open if no one is home. However, a gentle breeze from outside works wonders in circulating air in your home and opening interior doors can even create a nice cross breeze.

Improving air circulation in your home can make a big difference in the health of your family and the comfort of your home.
