Better Ventilation, Better Home Health & Comfort

In a recent ACHR news cover story, ACHR contributor Samantha Sine writes about the growing importance of ventilation for healthy, comfortable homes. It’s one thing to have top-notch HVAC equipment (e.g. AC unit, furnace), but ventilation (e.g. ductwork) is what actually distributes and circulates conditioned air throughout the home.

Proper ventilation improves indoor air quality (IAQ) and is critical for homeowners who want to feel healthy and comfortable in their homes.

Unfortunately, many homeowners don’t realize the importance of ventilation. In the ACHR article, Sine interviewed an HVAC contractor and Moon Air, Inc. Owner Steve Moon who pointed out, “Typically, customers are not looking for better ventilation, since most of them don’t even know it is a challenge.”


Contractors need to be educating homeowners about ventilation and how it relates to common indoor air quality (IAQ) issues in homes such as excessive dust, airborne allergens, and mold.


Are you a homeowner reading this article? Do yourself a favor and make sure your local contractor considers your home’s ventilation the next time you have your home serviced. Contractors that only focus on the HVAC equipment (e.g. AC unit, furnace) and not the ductwork are doing you a disservice.
