When it comes to whole home comfort and indoor air quality, there aren’t many things like breathing in fresh, clean air all the time. Of course, the weather in Tucker may not make that seem realistic during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten part of indoor air quality that gets ignored: ventilation.
When most people think about ventilation, they usually think about propping open a few windows around their home or using their screen doors. While this is still conventional, it’s not realistic year-round in Tucker. That’s where we can be grateful for the advancements in technology that have left us with heating and cooling equipment that offers the same effects of having your windows or doors propped open for ventilation.
Today’s ventilation systems run by drawing just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the advantages of traditional ventilation while eliminating odors, chemicals and other pollutants from your home’s indoor air. The process not only ensures 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 fairly easy as there are two sorts of systems used: Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERVs) and Heat Recovery Ventilators (HRVs). The majority of the United States, and all of Canada, are recommended to use HRVs because of the weather in those areas. ERVs are mostly exclusive to southern regions that have greater humidity levels.
Ventilation is just the beginning of things when thinking about indoor air quality.
