Nobody wants a whirlwind running through their home, but nobody wants hot muggy air floating about either. The modern home can provide all the best technology in the world, but ther basic knowledge of airflow is irreplaceable. For the most part, we know that keeping our windows open throughout the day will refresh our home and allow us to breathe in some cool new air. Yet, during the summer when very hot days are coming one after the other, knowing how to help our home breathe itself, is very useful. What happens when you don’t have free airflow? The used up air that we have already breathed is recycled, and we can sometimes congest too much carbon dioxide which makes us feel tired and groggy. This is why sometimes a walk in fresh air can stop you from throwing up. A free flow of air is healthy in mind respects.
One up, one down
To start things off simply, implement the one up and one down method. In your downstairs, open up the largest window you can find. Move the curtains and any other objects such as photos and books out of the way. Then go to your upstairs and open the smallest window you can find. Then keep all the doors open that lead to each of those windows. You should be able to walk to each window without having to open a door. What this does is accelerate the pressure. The large window is thrusting in new gulps of air while the small window is trying to force out large quantities of air. The small window speeds up the air flow because of the disturbance in pressure giving your home a nice new cycle of fresh air.
Blast the AC
Sometimes you’re not in the mood to open the doors or windows. It could be a very busy pollen season and if you suffer from hayfever you don’t want everything in the home giving your allergic reactions. So blasting the AC is sometimes the only option left. Modern AC units can manage to work all day long at a very high setting. However, you do have a repair on standby 24 hours a day so you should feel free to give them a call if you ever need either a checkup or a repair. If anything needs to be replaced, they can do that for you too. If you are going to jam your AC on high all day, then have a professional company’s number on hand just in case something goes wrong.
Block the fans
Extraction fans have a window to the outside. However, if they are not on what happens is that air from the outside filters inward. If you’re trying to shuffle the muggy air out, the last thing you need is a breeze that is forcing it back in. in this regard, you should block the extraction fans with a tea towel or a solid object while you open the doors and windows.
Fresh clean air should be abundant in the home. Not only does it help us with our morale, but we’re much healthier also. Start off with the one up and one down method.
