The Importance of the “V” in HVAC: Ensuring Great Ventilation

The Importance of the “V” in HVAC: Ensuring Great Ventilation

It’s easy to grow spoiled by Jacksonville’s gorgeous weather. Being so near the coast—or, in many cases, right on it—means that there’s always a fresh breeze available for airing out the home. Yet as you consider closing up your home in favor of turning on the air conditioner, it’s important to spare a thought concerning your home’s ventilation.

Good ventilation and air circulation doesn’t just prevent the musty smell of stagnant air. It can also prevent a host of health problems that might not otherwise affect your family. An HVAC professional, such as Snyder Heating and Air Conditioning, can help you ensure your home is well-ventilated.

The Importance of Good Ventilation

Sufficient airflow plays an important part in your home’s comfortable atmosphere. When you fry a delicious fresh fish for supper or cook up your favorite garlicky pasta dish, good ventilation helps prevent the buildup of strong scents that might otherwise unpleasantly linger. It can also help mitigate pet odors as well as the musty smell of stale air.

However, good ventilation does more than keep your home smelling nice. Proper airflow prevents excess moisture from building up in your home. Moisture left to linger can cause wood to rot, or can damage drywall. This can lead to expensive home repairs as well as to the growth of mold, which can negatively impact your health.

Good Ventilation and Health Concerns

Mold represents the best-known health concern linked to poor home ventilation. A mold infestation can severely impact your family’s health, and can lead to pricey home repairs. Symptoms of mold exposure begin mild, with complaints such as eye, throat, or nose irritation. Continued exposure can lead to respiratory distress or worse—autoimmune diseases.

Stagnant air can lead to a buildup of unhealthy emissions. Proper airflow can help dissipate concentrations of radon gas, which can occur naturally. Household furnishings and chemicals may also put off volatile organic compounds, or VOCs, which are nearly impossible to eliminate from inside air. Good ventilation can control dangerous concentrations of these compounds.

Those with allergies or respiratory concerns may find good airflow helps mitigate their conditions. Proper ventilation can assist in filtering allergens out of the home. It can also prevent the growth of mold, which may exacerbate respiratory difficulties.

HVAC Professionals – Your Ventilation Experts

Few homes can achieve good ventilation through natural means alone, especially during seasons with extreme weather—like hurricane force winds and rain or extreme heat, for example—where windows remain closed. Fans may help keep the air moving, but they do not solve the overarching problem with a home’s airflow and air quality. Addressing this root cause could help keep the home’s residents healthier.

The HVAC professionals at Snyder Heating and Air Conditioning can assist with ensuring your home has proper ventilation throughout. We have years of experience and expertise working with Jacksonville’s unique airflow needs. Contact us today!

Customer Reviews

This was an exceptional experience! We woke up to our A/C on but not cooling (it was 6am and already 81 in the house). The person who set up our appointment was very nice, able to get us seen same-day, and let us know of some options to help save us money.

-Christy Cormier

The service from Sam and Chris was excellent! They were very knowledgeable and professional. They were able to answer all of my questions and completed all of my electrical issues. I will definitely use them again for future jobs. Thank you!

-Adrienne Beal

From the get go I could tell that the Snyder employees were truly professionals and didn’t push to make sales like other companies I’ve talked to my whole life. They took the time to explain so that I could make a decision. The installers and later the duct cleaners were very respectful during their work here. Thank you.

-Mike Daniels

Snyder Heating and AC is dependable, always on time and techs have always been courteous and knowledgeable. Emanuel was a great addition to the company. He was friendly and knew what he was doing. Thank you for great service.

-Linda Ackley

Snyder came in and did a total overhaul of our duct system. They had a great knowledge of what to do to make our home so comfortable! The technicians were all so professional and took great care of us! We’re so thankful for their expertise. Great and easy communication with the call center. We will definitely use them again!

-Crystal Hill

Snyder provided an amazing experience from start to finish. Most of us dread getting estimates with pressuring salespeople. Erik was a great guy, explained all my options and didn’t try to pressure me to act quickly! Justin followed up with my husband and I to offer further assistance in our decision. Again, no pressure, just helped with our follow up questions.

-Michele Bauer

Very prompt, professional, courteous, and cleaned up after repair. Had water line break in my front yard and no pressure. Very pleased and would highly recommend Snyder for all your plumbing, and AC needs. Thank you for making a rough morning get better with ease and professionalism.

-Chuck Jr.

Snyder was easy to get in contact with and had availability the next day. Clint came out and needed some parts so had to reschedule us for the next day for installation. He did a great job converting our old 3 knob shower to one. Looks great! Professional and courteous. 100% recommend this company, especially Clint.
