Consider investing in an HRV system in Surrey and the Lower Mainland. Proper ventilation in any home is not only a comfort issue; ventilation can significantly affect health and wellbeing. Cooking, showering, breathing, and other life functions naturally produce moisture. In a badly ventilated space, excessive moisture can cause mould, dust mites, bacteria, and other nasty growths. Mould spores can become airborne and cause respiratory health problems and allergic reactions.
Mould and mildew aside, your appliances such as gas ranges and space heaters emit gases, carbon monoxide, and other pollutants. If your house is new, the materials used to build it can also pollute the air inside – we’ve all scrunched up our noses with new-house-paint-smells!
