When it comes to total home comfort and indoor air quality, there aren’t many things like breathing in fresh, clean air year-round. Of course, the climate in Litchfield Park may not make that seem probable 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 Litchfield Park. That’s where we can thank the advancements in technology that have presented us with heating and cooling equipment that produces the same effects of having your windows or doors propped open for ventilation.
Today’s ventilation systems work by pulling just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the benefits of traditional ventilation while removing odors, chemicals and other pollutants from your home’s indoor air. The process not only means you have 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.
Picking a ventilation system is relatively 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 because of the weather in those areas. ERVs are nearly exclusive to southern regions that have higher than normal humidity levels.
Ventilation is just the beginning of things when thinking about indoor air quality.
