Modern HVAC systems are more energy-efficient than older HVAC models.
They are also smarter and can communicate with the indoor space to create the right indoor environment.
However, for these systems to work, you have to take good care of them. One of the best ways to do this is by ensuring your air conditioner only receives fresh air from the outside. The right quality and amount of fresh air is important to your HVAC system in two ways. One, it dilutes stale or polluted indoor air, and two, it pressurizes your indoor air. When fresh outdoor air gets into your living space, it mixes with the stale indoor air and dilutes it. Therefore, the air is less polluted. If this does not happen, the indoor air becomes more stuffy and highly polluted. This poses health risks to everyone within the building. Apart from this, your HVAC system relies on clean and fresh air to work well. Typically, air with dirt takes a toll on your system. This happens when your system works harder to condition your indoor space. The air also contains high levels of pollutants and dirt, which get stuck in your system, clogging the filters and curtailing the normal functioning of your HVAC system. Eventually, your system’s efficiency decreases. To avoid all these, you have to install a fresh air system to clean outdoor air flowing into your home and guarantee a sufficient supply of fresh air within your indoor space. Ultimately, when you supply enough fresh and clean air into your home long enough, your HVAC system will last longer.
