Proper home ventilation is especially important when your house is closed up during winter. Here are some tips to improve your indoor air quality this winter.

Keep Your House Clean

Using a quality vacuum to remove dust and dirt is a great way to improve indoor air quality, but unless you’re using a central vacuum system, such as the PurePower™ Series from NuTone, you’re just recirculating dirty air throughout your home. Unlike a canister or upright vacuum, a central vac system actually exhausts the dirt and dirty air outside your home.

Remove Moisture from Bathrooms

Too much moisture from showering and bathing can cause the growth of mold and mildew in your home. Properly installed bath vent fans, such as the new InVent™ Series from Broan, remove excess moisture and vent it to the outside. Broan fans can also come with a built-in humidistat to cut the fan on and off automatically as needed.

Add Spot Ventilation to Rooms

Bathrooms are the only room that needs good ventilation Broan also makes combination exhaust fans and recessed light fixtures, such as their 744 Series which are perfect for removing musty air in closets and laundry rooms.
