Assessing the Wellness Value of your home is a way to see how your home adds to your wellbeing. Sometimes wellness is associated with eating healthy, going to the gym, or nourishing your brain. But shaping your environment is just as important as shaping your body. Having windows that let in lots of natural daylight or a great water filtration system are some things that contribute to this. But Fantech believes the air you breathe is the most important quality of wellness your home can have.
See what experts have to say on the importance of Fresh Air in your home.
1. Walk into your utility room. Does your HVAC system connect to the outdoors in any way? If not, you are probably recirculating stale air. 2. Does your kitchen or bathroom have an exhaust fan that connects to the outdoors through the roof or through the wall? If not, the humidity and odors associated with bathing and cooking are being sent back into your home.3. When it’s cold outside, do your windows constantly collect condensation? If this is the case, your home may not have the ability to expel excess humidity. If humidity can’t escape, neither can VOCs or other harmful particulates.
If you can say yes to all three of these then you have an A. But if not, your Wellness Value could use a boost. Fantech can help!
Clean air at home starts with a clean air filter.
Changing filters every 1 to 3 months is the first step to maintaining healthier indoor air quality. It's especially important to keep on schedule when you have children in the household who may be sensitive to airborne allergens.

Thanks to space-age technology, your home can keep inside in and outside out more efficiently than ever before. But locking the fresh air out is a bad idea. A fresh air appliance will allow you to bring it all in without sacrificing the energy your home worked so hard to produce.
Fresh air appliances provide balanced whole house ventilation while recovering the energy during air exchange. These systems also known as Heat Recovery Ventilators (HRVs) and Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERVs). These products are simple to install and maintain. A wide range of airflows can satisfy almost any project - from studio apartments to 5 bedroom residential homes.
