At Trophy Signature Homes, our goal has always been focused on building modern homes throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth area while keeping energy efficiency top-of-mind. Good home ventilation is a crucial element in our High-Efficiency Home promise, and with our spray foam insulation and mechanical ventilation system working in tandem, we ensure that all of our homes will promote a cleaner, indoor environment for you.
Why is mechanical ventilation important?
At times, even indoor air quality can be polluted, and with much of our days spent inside our homes—especially now that many of us are working remotely—it’s more crucial than ever to have clean indoor air. Our Fresh Air system helps keep your indoor air filtered and clean. Without proper ventilation and filtration, moisture/humidity, odors and additional pollutants could begin to build up within your home—which could potentially cause further damage to various areas of your home, such as your insulation, venting or plumbing.
And at Trophy Signature Homes, a mechanical ventilation system comes standard!
How does mechanical ventilation work?
When you have a mechanical ventilation system in your home, it creates positive air pressure within each room. This means that each room is keeping the air contained, and promoting a cleaner, indoor environment for you and your loved ones to comfortably live in. It also ensures that no contaminated air from outside can get in, and it reduces the chances of radon intrusion into your home.
The mechanical ventilation, insulation and filtration systems we have in all of our homes are specifically designed to help keep dust, allergens and other airborne pollutants out. Our system uses exhaust fans to pull stale or moist air out of the rooms that generate it the most—like your kitchen and bathroom—and then bring in fresh, filtered air into the rooms to maintain a comfortable indoor environment.
Is the investment worth it?
According to Energy.gov, improved ventilation is known to be one of the most cost effective and energy efficient ways to stabilize air temperatures. In the Texas heat especially, good ventilation throughout the home is extremely important. The attic acts as a buffer between the outside air and the air within your home, so it’s important that you have a mechanical ventilation system to maintain a consistent temperature, starting in the attic.
What goes into your Trophy Home
At Trophy Signature Homes, each standard feature that goes into our high-efficiency homes plays a role in ensuring our homeowners live a safe and healthy life. Our team understands that crafting modern homes throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth area focuses as much on the foundations and inner workings of the home as it does on the exterior and interior design of it.
