One way to live happily is to stay healthy. Maintaining your health can also be done in various ways, you know! Ranging from sports, eating nutritious foods, to meditation for mental health. But did you know that a healthy place to live is also very important?
A healthy home not only has the characteristics of an environmentally friendly home, but also has a good air circulation system. Therefore, the home ventilation system determines how healthy your home is. An ideal home ventilation system must be able to channel the air to the brim, provide sufficient openings, and can filter out dust or dirty air.
The house ventilation system itself is divided into two types, namely the natural home ventilation system and the mechanical home ventilation system. Let’s look at the following house ventilation ideas!
Natural Home Ventilation with Windows
The window is a natural and permanent ventilation that is generally installed above the main window in homes in the tropics. What often happens mistakes in the use of ventilation of this house is the size and number of windows not adjusted to the area of the room. Minimal ventilation of this type of house must cover 5% of the room area. For installation, try installing a boven facing each other (cross ventilation) so that air can go in and out immediately and not stay indoors. Other natural ventilation ideas: loster ventilation and jalousie ventilation.
Mechanical Home Ventilation System
In homes that use a mechanical ventilation system, usually the home ventilation used is a suction fan (exhaust fan). This air filter is mounted above the ceiling in each room, connected by an air flow path centered on the attic of the Heat Recovery Unit (MVHR). The process, the air that has been sucked first extracted. The result is clean air will be channeled back into the room, while polluted air will be discharged outside the house.
House ventilation with a mechanical system is very effective in cleaning contaminated air, it can even trap dust and insects.
