您是否知道您的家庭的室内空气可能比洛杉矶在散发日污染?

Cigarette smoke, dust, soot, bacteria, molds, carbon monoxide, formaldehyde, radon, pesticides, and vapors from scores of household cleansers and building materials are just some of the contaminants that may be tainting your home’s air.

“Sufficient evidence exists to conclude that indoor air pollution represents a major portion of the public’s exposure to air pollution,” states a report issued by the Environmental Protection Agency.

在室内,空气污染物被困并积聚,特别是在今天的气密,超级绝缘房屋中。当污染物积累时,一些浓度可能超过室外水平的100倍。

High indoor humidity can be a serious problem, too. Humid air encourages mold, mildew, and bacterial growth, which are health hazards. In winter, condensation collects on windows and can damage paint, insulation, roofs, and exterior walls. And in summer, high humidity feels uncomfortable and strains air conditioning.

Then again, a little humidity is important to a home’s comfort, particularly in the winter.

Proper ventilation inside a house is important for any number of reasons. The most obvious is comfort.

在炎热的夏日,通风可以提供冷却漏洞,而无需费用。但更重要的是舒适,通风在房子及其居民的健康中发挥着关键作用。

各种风扇和呼吸机进行这项工作,包括整个房屋风扇,浴室风扇,厨房装饰罩,阁楼风扇,热恢复呼吸机等。房子还具有更多的被动通风,以阁楼和地板下方的通风口的形式。

例如,全外粉丝:想象一下,这是炎热的夏日结束,温度终于开始冷却外面。

您可以打开窗户,然后打开整个房子风扇,通常安装在阁楼中,然后在您家中迅速迅速耗尽内置的热量,同时从外面带来凉爽的空气。你的房子几乎瞬间舒适,你甚至没有打开交流。

良好的阁楼通风至关重要。夏季,通风不当的阁楼可以捕获热量并将其辐射到下面的房间,将压力放在空调 - 和钱包上。

在冬天,来自下面的生活空间的加热空气可以升到阁楼。如果阁楼通风良好,这种加热,潮湿的空气会导致绝缘,托梁和椽子上的破坏性冷凝。

Hot air trapped in the attic during winter can also cause snow to melt at the top of your roof and then refreeze at the cooler eaves, leading to ice buildup and, possibly, roof leaks. The solution for the problems of both seasons is to install attic vents that allow warm air to flow out and cooler air to be brought in.

在本周分的部分中,您将找到有关如何选择和雇用各种类型的通风,如何购买合适的工具的信息,以及如何安装和修复此设备。
