Product Feature: Garage Ventilation

Industry News

While your kitchen may be the heart of your home, your garage is often the working hub of your house. Many people across the country use their garages to house their larger possessions, work on DIY projects, or even turn them into workout spaces.

For such an active area of the house, garages can often be overlooked when it comes to ventilation. Here’s a look at why it’s so important and how RVI can help to create a healthier, more comfortable space in your home.

Do Garages Need Ventilation?

Garages play host to a variety of different items, from cars and bikes to DIY tools and holiday decorations. With so many diverse objects, you’ll have a ton of dirt and contaminants making their way into your home, from car exhaust fumes to allergens and dust from rarely-used tools.

What’s more, garages will often have far worse ventilation than the rest of the house, without windows or a proper ventilation system. Although we might not spend as much time in there as we do in our kitchen or bedrooms, it’s still vital to keep air flowing in order to decrease odors, fumes, and pollutants, and keep flooring and walls dry. 

In our Northern Wisconsin climate, this is more important than anywhere else. Our long winters mean our cars track wet mud and snow into our garages each and every day. Left unchecked, the moisture that our cars bring in can eventually cause serious damage to our floors and walls.

Proper ventilation can also help combat extremely high or low temperatures in the garage, making it a more comfortable space to be in. In addition, if your garage shares a wall with your living space, controlling the garage temperature in the garage could help to improve the efficiency of your home overall, saving both energy and money.

How Garage Ventilation Can Help

With all those issues in mind, investing in proper garage ventilation can help to prevent those health and aesthetic problems from ever happening. RVI’s Professionally Installed Garage Ventilation System is designed to remove unwanted moisture, dust, toxins, and other harmful contaminants from the air.

Including features such as the Panasonic Fan WhisperGreen Select Multi-Speed Fan, and venting to the exterior, our system is the ideal high-performance garage ventilation system. Our teams can install it for you professionally to give you full peace of mind for the future.

When you’re building a new home, you want it to last for years. Getting the right ventilation system doesn’t just improve the comfort of your garage and safeguard your health, but it will also protect the interior of your garage from mold and contaminant build-up. This will enhance the lifetime of your garage and save you maintenance costs down the line.
