When it comes to total home comfort and indoor air quality, there aren’t many things like breathing in fresh, clean air throughout the year. Of course, the climate in Thedford may not make that seem probable during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten piece of indoor air quality that gets ignored: ventilation.
When most people think about ventilation, they usually think about opening a few windows in their home or using their screen doors. While this is still commonplace, it’s not realistic year-round in Thedford. That’s where we can be grateful for the improvements 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 run 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 impurities 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.
Selecting a ventilation system is fairly easy as there are two types 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 because of the weather in those areas. ERVs are almost exclusive to southern regions that have higher than normal humidity levels.
Ventilation is just the beginning of things when talking about indoor air quality.
