When it comes to whole home comfort and indoor air quality, there’s nothing like breathing in fresh, clean air throughout the year. Of course, the weather in Circleville may not make that seem realistic during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten part of indoor air quality that gets ignored: ventilation.
When most people think about ventilation, they typically think about cracking a few windows in their home or using their screen doors. While this is still conventional, it’s not realistic year-round in Circleville. That’s where we can be thankful for the developments in technology that have provided us with heating and cooling equipment that offers the same effects of having your windows or doors opened for ventilation.
Today’s ventilation systems operate by pulling just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the benefits of traditional ventilation while eliminating odors, chemicals and other contaminants from your home’s indoor air. The process not only provides you with nicer feeling air, but it also removes stale air from your home, helping make your home’s air as comfortable as it can be without wasting energy.
Choosing a ventilation system is pretty easy as there are two sorts of systems used: Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERVs) and Heat Recovery Ventilators (HRVs). Nearly all of the United States, and all of Canada, are recommended to use HRVs due to the climates in those areas. ERVs are mostly exclusive to southern regions that have increased humidity levels.
Ventilation is just the beginning of things when discussing indoor air quality.
