A ventilator air cleaner is an essential item to have in your home in order to keep air from becoming stale.

While it might be difficult to tell what constitutes “stale” air, there are several contaminants and pollutants that build up inside your home, and not taking the proper actions to get rid of them can lead to poor indoor air quality. In fact, the inside of a home is often more polluted than the outside, making it even more essential to ensure the air is kept as clean as possible.

There are two separate kinds of these products: local ventilators and whole-house ventilators. Both have their own way of functioning and ensuring the air in your home is kept fresh.

Local Ventilators:

  • Exhaust locally produced humid air, odours, gases and particles.
  • Are ideal for homes with workshops in the garage, basement or anywhere else, or in homes where chemicals are worked with often.

An example is a kitchen range hood or a bathroom exhaust fan.

Whole-house Ventilators:

  • Continuously exhaust a home’s entire volume of stale air.
  • Bring in an equal volume of fresh air from outdoors.
  • Help control humidity and dilute harmful gases, such as from insulation, press-wood furniture, carbon monoxide, cigarette smoke, etc.

These are often sold as heat recovery ventilators or energy recovery ventilators, as they both recover some of the energy you’ve put into the air before it becomes exhausted outside. In either case, a few looks at their benefits makes it clear that a ventilator air cleaner is crucial when it comes to ensuring that the stale air in your home is sent away and the air indoors is safe to breathe again.
