There has been a growing need to improve indoor air quality since the air that we breathe matters a lot. We should be more concerned about our indoor air quality than our outdoor air quality since the indoor air quality can be up to five times poorer than the outdoor air quality.

Maintaining good air quality is particularly essential when you or a family member suffers from allergies or experience any other breathing complications. However, most people tend to take air quality for granted. Air circulation helps regulate temperature, prevent particle build up and mould. It also makes your home safer and more comfortable.

Here are some of the top ways of improving your indoor air circulation.

Open Your Doors and Windows

This is the most simple and obvious thing that you need to do to enhance air circulation in your indoor spaces. By simply opening the windows of different rooms of your house, you can create a cross flow that helps to improve the circulation of your entire home.

When it is cold outside, consider opening one or two windows for at least 15 minutes twice a day. This won’t affect your heat, but it will greatly enhance air circulation in your home.

Turn on Ceiling Fans

Running your ceiling fans is a great way to improve air circulation. Ceiling fans help the air to move around your house, turning on your ceiling fan will also allow you to run your AC less often which is cost-effective when it comes to saving electricity. Ceiling fans are usually the best option for making your interior spaces cooler during periods of moderate weather and low humidity.

 Incorporate House Plants

Various researchers have studied plants and established that they are a great way of purifying your interior air. Since plants are nature’s lungs, it makes a lot of sense if you bring them indoors.

If you are concerned about ventilation and air flow within your home or work space then contact Solent. As experts in the ceiling fan industry, we at Solent understand how vital it is to have good air flow and our ceiling fans are guaranteed to provide you with a breath of fresh air.
