When it comes to complete home comfort and indoor air quality, there aren’t many things like breathing in fresh, clean air year-round. Of course, the climate in Tucker may not make that seem possible during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten piece of indoor air quality that gets unnoticed: ventilation.
When most people think about ventilation, they typically think about propping open a few windows throughout their home or using their screen doors. While this is still ordinary, it’s not realistic throughout in Tucker. That’s where we can thank the developments in technology that have presented us with heating and cooling equipment that creates the same effects of having your windows or doors opened for ventilation.
Today’s ventilation systems work by drawing just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the benefits of traditional ventilation while eliminating odors, chemicals and other contaminants from your home’s indoor air. The process not only ensures you have nicer feeling air, it gets rid of 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 relatively easy as there are two types 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 due to the climates in those areas. ERVs are almost exclusive to southern regions that have increased humidity levels.
Ventilation is just the beginning of things when discussing indoor air quality.
