Making Sure Your House Has Proper Ventilation
One of the most important things to remember when you are building a new home or business or remodeling an older home or business is to make sure that it is properly ventilated. Improper ventilation can be the cause of many problems including leaks, wood rot, corrosion and algae growth. There are some things that you can do to help prevent these things from happening such as installing a roof ventilator, whole house fans or an exhaust fan roof vent. Since going green is on many people's lists nowadays it is also possible for you to install a solar powered roof vent fan in your home or business.
You should also remember that crawl space ventilation can be equally important when it comes to keeping your home properly ventilated. Keeping your crawl space from drawing moisture can prevent rotting and deterioration of your base boards and foundation. It can also help to prevent the growth of mold and mildew. A crawl space vent also helps to vent out treated wood gases and radon gases that may have built up in your crawl space. This can help you ensure the health of your family by removing these hazards from your home.
Another way to insure your ventilation needs are met is a whole house window fan. These fans are often an inexpensive way to cool your entire home. Cool air is drawn in through open windows from the outside and the warm air is then expelled through the roofing vent. This method is often comparatively less expensive than traditional window air conditioning units. Industrial wall exhaust fans are also a popular way to remove humidity, excess heat and fumes from your home or your place of business.
This type of ventilation can also be used in cold weather in the form of a heat recovery ventilator. This device has a heat exchanger that transfers the heat into fresh air and uses separate blowers to draw in fresh air and expel the stale air. There are many choices available when it comes to getting your home well ventilated. Some research by you will be warranted in order for you to find the right venting system for your home ventilation needs.

Roof Leak - Fix One-Type by Double Sealing the Vent Pipes
By J Delms On the rear roof of a house, the highly flexible rubbery seal and flashing around the plumbing-drainage vent are generally replaced when the roof is replaced. However, this seal will dry out, crack, and leak before the roof needs replacing. One way to fix or prevent this leakage without replacing the surrounding roof shingles is to double-up on the vent-pipe seal itself. Here's how. [READ FULL ARTICLE]
