Tips to Improve Air Circulation in Your Home

Having the most comfortable home is about more than just blocking out heat. We all have Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems in our homes, but do we fully understand their key aspects? You can have a room be at any temperature, and it can still be stuffy. You see, it’s essential to have proper air circulation; this doesn’t necessarily mean you need to get new equipment, you could just use what you have more efficiently. If you have fans, ACs, or heaters, you can improve your home’s air circulation.

Ceiling Fans
Ceiling fans are an excellent way to cool down your home and circulate the indoor air to make it less stuffy. Ceiling fans have been around for a long time and will continue to be used because of how effective they are. But have you ever considered how you can make yours perform even better? Ceiling fans are often powered by alternating current (AC), which usually comes from the mains electrical power supply, but you can power them with direct current (DC) power too. Jeff Eller from Modern Fan Outlet says that DC motors make ceiling fans very efficient and provide excellent air flow. Setting your ceiling fan to rotate counterclockwise is also a great way to get more air flowing. You see, the air blades have a certain curvature, and the counterclockwise rotation streamlines the airflow in a different pattern, making your room feel much more comfortable.

Open Layouts
Having an open layout in your home can immensely improve how it feels. Not only does it make the space seem bigger in size, but it also makes it less confining and helps eliminate any tight or stuffy areas. We aren’t suggesting that you tear down any walls, but keeping some doors open, or arranging your furniture in such a way that it doesn’t create obstructed paths can help air travel throughout your home easier. This allows your AC, heater, or fan to spread their heat or air more efficiently. Open doors and windows can also create cross-breezes because of a fluid mechanics principle called choking, where a temporary restriction in the cross-sectional area of an airstream will increase the speed of the air flowing. However, if your issue is not with the air circulation, but rather the temperature, close the doors and cool or heat the space with the HVAC unit cramped to fully feel its effect.

AC Unit Placement
We all know that cold air falls and hot air rises. While it's more about air density, the premise remains true. Place your AC unit closer to your ceiling for better air circulation. If you can place a hood or some form of shield around your AC unit, you can direct the air to flow in a certain direction. You can also consider using an AC unit with adjustable fins to achieve that. Be sure not to place your AC unit behind any obstructions when installing it. It is also a good idea to consult an AC repair Denver specialist for reliable AC installation and repair.

Improving your air circulation is important to have a comfortable home. Understanding that temperature is not the only factor that affects the air inside your home will help you remedy any ventilation problems you face. Consider the tools you have at your disposal to have the most relaxing summer possible.
