We all know that the biggest secret to having a well-ventilated room depends upon what you keep in your surroundings.
If you have pets that walk around freely in the house, it’s pretty obvious that they have probably dragged something infectious from outside into the home.
Also, whenever allergy season kicks in, your home becomes even more sensitive to pollen and other allergies. This is why it is essential that you keep your home well scented, fresh and ventilated at all times.
And in case you are wondering how all of that’s going to be possible, continue reading this post for tips.
Tips for well-designed homes
If your home has pavements and grounds, cover them with grass or absorbing materials that are low heat. You can opt for grass too if you want.
This will allow lesser heat to be retained with the ground. Not just that, it also directs cool air within your building or home and allows your home to stay cool and well ventilated all day.
Another thing that improves air circulation within the home is earth mounds. They protect your home while keeping prairie dogs, insects and more.
Earth mounds are perfect elements to add to your garden, yard, landscape or home to improve air circulation during summer.
Water elements to are wonderful ways to keep your homes well ventilated. For this, you can add swimming pools, fountains and more to keep sure your surroundings are cool and the air around you is fresh. In that way, your home will always be full of fresh air.
For homes that are new
Air deflectors are easy to position. You can do it vertically or horizontally to redirect any airflow. Instead, you can install it like slats, louvers or overhangs that can be placed on a bigger level. This can definitely improve air motion and redirect it.
Clerestories provide your home with natural illumination while improving air movement too. Since hot air always goes upwards, a clerestory will be able to act as space and vent so that the hot air accumulates perfectly while keeping your entire home well ventilated.
Windows must always be placed towards either or the north or south or even both. This improves ventilation while hindering any kind of aesthetic views. This also encourages a natural breeze and draws the right kind of airflow within interiors during summer.
Note: If your home is traditional, you could have balconies, patios, courts, and atriums to make sure there are more open spaces…
