When you think of indoor air quality, you might imagine the fresh, clean spring air drifting through an open window and a comfortable home—a feeling you may wish for all year. Unfortunately, the weather in Circleville makes this difficult during the harsher months. But do you have to give up this fresh air just because the weather isn’t playing fair? The answer is “no.” With good ventilation, your indoor air quality can be premium—regardless of what it’s like outside.

The positive is that technological advances have allowed us to replicate the benefits of clean, fresh air flowing through your windows and doors using your heating and cooling equipment.

By drawing in just the right amount of fresh, outdoor air, today’s ventilation systems provide you with the advantages of standard ventilation like eliminating odors, chemicals and other contaminants from your indoor air. This process removes stale air from your home and creates nicer feeling air. It’s a fantastic way to make your home’s air as comfortable as possible without wasting energy.

There are two types of ventilation systems available: Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERVs) and Heat Recovery Ventilators (HRVs). Because of the climate, it's recommended that homes in most of the United States and all of Canada to use HRVs. ERVs are used most often in the humid southern regions.
