Craft Rooms: The Importance of Proper Ventilation

February 21, 2019 | Blog

Craft Rooms: The Importance of Proper VentilationSome hobbies require fresh air ventilation because the materials they use degrade indoor air quality (IAQ), like volatile organic compounds (VOCs). VOCs exposure poses health hazards that adequate fresh air can remedy. These gases cause problems from minor irritations to serious health conditions. Adequate fresh air is the best way to reduce your risk.

You don’t have to give up working on crafts when you can’t have the windows open due to weather concerns. You and your HVAC pro can discover the best ways for you to ensure adequate fresh air when the HVAC system is running and when it isn’t.

Balanced Ventilating Systems

These devices are the most convenient and energy efficient ways to maintain high air quality year-round through mechanical ventilation methods. They pull out the same amount of air from your home as they pull inside. The HVAC industry uses energy recovery ventilators (ERVs) and heat recovery ventilators (HRVs) to maintain healthy indoor air without driving up energy costs measurably.

The core of the ventilators captures the heat energy of the outgoing air and puts it back into the incoming air. Additionally, ERVs are able to remove much of the humidity of the incoming air, which makes it easier to keep your home comfortable during the cooling season. HVAC pros can install the HRV or ERV to ventilate your craft room and even your whole house.

Exhaust Ventilation

Exhaust fans are the easiest way to keep the air in your craft room free from air pollutants, but they’re not energy efficient when you need to heat or cool your home. However, that’s still a small price to pay for good air quality and avoiding the harmful pollutants VOCs cause. You can use a window fan to pull fresh air out a window in your craft room or install a kitchen hood over your work area.

Ventilation is a key component of maintaining good air quality in your craft room. To learn more, contact CCAC, providing HVAC services for Coastal Bend homeowners.

Great company. Contacted my current AC company to check on my warranty before charging me anything. Saved me a bunch of money and headache if dealing with anything. Would definitely recommend them and use them again.
