When it comes to whole home comfort and indoor air quality, there aren’t many things like breathing in fresh, clean air all the time. Of course, the climate in Eastland may not make that seem realistic during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten part of indoor air quality that gets overlooked: ventilation.
When most people think about ventilation, they typically think about opening a few windows throughout their home or using their screen doors. While this is still ordinary, it’s not practical year-round in Eastland. That’s where we can be grateful for the advancements in technology that have provided us with heating and cooling equipment that creates the same effects of having your windows or doors cracked open for ventilation.
Today’s ventilation systems operate by drawing just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the benefits of traditional ventilation while eliminating odors, chemicals and other pollutants from your home’s indoor air. The process not only provides you with nicer feeling air, but it also gets rid of stale air from your home, helping make your home’s air as comfortable as it can be without wasting energy.
Selecting a ventilation system is relatively easy as there are two kinds of systems used: Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERVs) and Heat Recovery Ventilators (HRVs). The majority of the United States, and all of Canada, are recommended to use HRVs due to the climates in those areas. ERVs are almost exclusive to southern regions that have greater humidity levels.
Ventilation is just the beginning of things when discussing indoor air quality.
