HEATING & COOLING INSIGHTS

BLOG

HVAC stands for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. Ventilation is the oft-overlooked member of that trio. Nevertheless, it's absolutely crucial to a healthy home environment and efficient heating and cooling. This point becomes even more important since modern construction techniques lead to sealed houses that are very efficient but also much more prone to inadequate ventilation.

 

Indoor Air Quality


Indoor air quality (IAQ) is an important factor. At Dave Broussard A/C & Heating, we have more than a decade of experience helping homeowners in Broussard, Louisiana, maintain the best possible air quality. What you may not realize is that an inadequately ventilated house can actually have higher concentration levels of pollutants than outside air. Proper ventilation ensures an influx of fresh air that lowers pollution in an energy-efficient way.

 

 

Moisture


Another important aspect of ventilation is that it helps to avoid condensation. Excess moisture is problematic in a house for a number of reasons. It can lead to mold, which can greatly affect indoor air quality even before you can smell or see it. Moisture can exacerbate allergies, asthma, and other respiratory conditions. Condensation can also cause your wood surfaces and furniture to degrade faster. Ventilation isn’t the only way to deal with moisture, but it's the first line of defense in a healthy home.

 

 

Deodorization


Ensuring a steady flow of fresh air is very important for maintaining an odor-free residence. A house that's well-ventilated won’t have moisture problems. A home that's also dusted and vacuumed regularly generally won’t have the smells that people often try to disguise with artificial air fresheners.

 

 

Evenness of Heating and Cooling


Your ventilation system is also crucial to your heating and cooling because it distributes the conditioned air throughout the house. If the ventilation is inadequate, then you're more likely to experience areas that are hotter or cooler than the rest.

Is it worth it to sign up for a regular HVAC maintenance plan? We often get asked this question by both homeowners and even business owners. The truth is that a maintenance plan may seem like a “gimmick” sold by HVAC companies to add on to your bill. We find that most people that are hesitant about signing up for a plan are confused about what they’re buying into, or why it matters in the long run.

Staying warm can be expensive during the winter months, and there's nothing fun about having to pay a pricey heating bill. It can be annoying having to bundle up with two pairs of socks, jackets, and extra layers of clothing to stay warm in your own home to save money.
