When it comes to complete home comfort and indoor air quality, there’s nothing like breathing in fresh, clean air throughout the year. Of course, the environment in Hudsonville 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 cracking a few windows around their home or using their screen doors. While this is still commonplace, it’s not realistic year-round in Hudsonville. That’s where we can be thankful for the advancements in technology that have presented us with heating and cooling equipment that creates the same effects of having your windows or doors propped open for ventilation.
Today’s ventilation systems run by grasping just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the perks of traditional ventilation while getting rid of odors, chemicals and other pollutants from your home’s indoor air. The process not only provides you with nicer feeling air, but it also 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 pretty easy as there are two sorts 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 as a result 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.
