Ventilation systems help maintain a healthy environment by regulating moisture and humidity, controlling temperatures, removing contaminated or stale air, ridding the air of dust or allergens, providing the proper exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide levels and exchanging fresh air throughout a confined space or spaces. Ventilation systems are used in various settings including homes and workplaces. DHC Comfort provides and installs many different kinds of ventilation systems for your home, studio or business. Below is a short explanation of the different types of ventilating systems we can do:
Attic Exhaust Fans
Attic fans are intended to cool hot attics by pushing the hot inside air - outside. Unless you've been in your attic during the hot summer, you may not know temperatures average around 150 degrees making your air conditioner work harder. DHC Comfort provides thermostatically controlled exhaust fans that automatically turn on when the space reaches the set temperature. We also now offer solar attic fans that are powered completely by free solar energy and qualify for a Federal Tax Credit!
Clothing Dryer Ventilation
A clothing dryer vent pushes the hot air from the dryer to outside your home. If your lint filter is ever full, the excess lint also is pushed outside. Lint is extremely flammable and can be dangerous if not vented properly.
An energy recovery ventilator (ERV) is able to take the outside air and exchange it with inside air, while transferring the heat energy. It's like opening a window in the middle of a cold winter without having a heavy impact on your utility bills. A ventilator is a key component to IAQ, and keeps the air fresh inside your home.
Industrial ventilation protects workers from gases and toxins by flushing bad air from work sites and adding clean air. Welding vapors, dust from a construction site and oil mists are types of pollutants that can be removed. Work sites need to use industrial ventilation systems to protect employees from contaminants.
Kitchen Ventilation Systems
When you cook - moisture, gas, grease, and smoke are released into the air and then settle on furniture, cabinets, window sills and paint. These fumes are destructive to your home furnishings as well as the quality of your indoor air. Whether you have a standard electric, standard gas or professional style stove, DHC Comfort installs the ventilation system you want and your kitchen needs.
Restroom Exhaust Fans
An exhaust fan in a restroom eliminates odors and humidity. While the removal of odor is convenient, removing humidity is important. Water from the sink and shower can create mold and rot without proper ventilation.
Ventilation systems bring a sense of safety, clean air and comfort to a home. There are many different ventilation systems designed to meet your needs and DHC Comfort is ready to help you through the entire process. From deciding which system meets your needs all the way through to installation, we will be there every step of the way.
