Why Ventilation is Important
According to OSHA, one of the leading causes of poor indoor air quality is improper upkeep of the ventilation system. Poor ventilation can lead to an increased risk of asthma symptoms, in addition to several other respiratory diseases. Ventilation systems are the most important factor in any property with a heating and cooling processing. It’s responsible for moving the conditioned air throughout any property. It’s important to regularly perform maintenance on your ventilation system because it produces the indoor air quality (IAQ) of your space. This is especially true for commercial properties that have kitchens, laboratories, or manufacturing spaces.
Quality Air, Quality Business
Indoor air, if left unfiltered, can become a trap for dust, pollen, disease-causing viruses and bacteria, moisture, smoke, or even dangerous fumes such as carbon dioxide. Because of this, it’s highly important to have a well-designed ventilation system for your property. Depending on how your property is designed, there are several options for ventilation.

Mechanical ventilation often goes hand-in-hand with central heating and air systems through the use of an air handler that facilitates the exchange of indoor and outdoor air. Other forms of mechanical ventilation include exhaust fans in kitchens and bathrooms that help to clear the air of smoke, moisture, and other contaminants. Ceiling and floor fans that help to bring rooms to more comfortable temperatures can also be utilized. In cooler seasons, ceiling fans can even be used to collect warm air (since heat rises) and distribute it throughout the room.
Natural ventilation is any method that processes air without the use of fans or mechanical systems. While this can be achieved by opening windows and doors, it can also be achieved through the strategic design of your HVAC system. If you’re getting a new system installed, the technicians at Redding Heating & Air are skilled at placing ducts, vents, and other airflow mechanisms to achieve natural ventilation. Natural ventilation is not ideal for commercial spaces, though it can be beneficial for residential properties.
