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 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 normally think about opening a few windows throughout their home or using their screen doors. While this is still commonplace, it’s not practical throughout in Litchfield Park. That’s where we can be grateful for the advancements in technology that have left us with heating and cooling equipment that produces the same effects of having your windows or doors opened for ventilation.
Today’s ventilation systems operate by drawing just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the perks of traditional ventilation while eliminating odors, chemicals and other pollutants from your home’s indoor air. The process not only means you have nicer feeling air, it eliminates 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 fairly easy as there are two kinds of systems used: Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERVs) and Heat Recovery Ventilators (HRVs). Most 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.
