When it comes to total home comfort and indoor air quality, there are few things like breathing in fresh, clean air all the time. Of course, the environment in Magnolia may not make that seem realistic during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten part of indoor air quality that gets unnoticed: ventilation.
When most people think about ventilation, they usually think about opening a few windows throughout their home or using their screen doors. While this is still ordinary, it’s not realistic year-round in Magnolia. That’s where we can be thankful for the developments in technology that have presented us with heating and cooling equipment that produces the same effects of having your windows or doors cracked open for ventilation.
Today’s ventilation systems run by pulling just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the advantages 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 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). 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 greater humidity levels.
Ventilation is just the beginning of things when talking about indoor air quality.
