When homeowners consider how to improve the comfort of their home or the efficiency of their HVAC system, ventilation is usually not the first thing that comes to mind. Ventilation is critical to the health and comfort of any home. When your attic, crawl space, or basement is not properly vented, it retains moisture and heat, making your home uncomfortable.
Leto Plumbing & Heating offers a wide range of home ventilation services and can assist you in keeping your home healthy and comfortable. Call us today for a free home evaluation and quote on any of our ventilation services!

Importance of Proper Ventilation for Indoor Air Quality
A poorly ventilated environment can be hazardous to your health. A ventilation system can aid in the removal of pollutants, bacteria, and odors. It can also control the temperature of a room to make it more comfortable and less likely to grow mold.
HVAC systems can also worsen issues with indoor air quality. The HVAC system may be contaminated (for example, due to mold in the duct lining or bacteria on the coils or filters), and the system may spread these pollutants throughout the home. Second, pollutants can be spread from one area of the house to another via the HVAC duct distribution system. Regular maintenance and duct sealing can help to alleviate these issues.
Luckily, Leto Plumbing & Heating can take care of any HVAC maintenance you need to improve the ventilation and air quality in your home or business. Contact us today to learn more or to schedule an appointment with our expert team of professionals.

What is the Main Purpose of Ventilation?
An efficient ventilation system is an essential component of any home or business. Any system that allows air to flow and move between the inside and outside of a property, providing fresh air for the occupants, is referred to as ventilation.
While outdoor air quality is an issue, indoor pollution can be just as bad, if not worse. Other contaminants, such as traffic fumes, can enter from the outside, especially if natural ventilation is used without filters. An efficient ventilation system can help maintain a constant flow of clean air, preventing the accumulation of potentially dangerous pollutants.
At Leto Plumbing & Heating, we care about your health and safety. Therefore, we are here to help clean and inspect your home ventilation system to ensure the air you breathe is clean and fresh. Reach out to us to learn more or to schedule an appointment today!
