When it comes to whole home comfort and indoor air quality, there aren’t many things like breathing in fresh, clean air year-round. Of course, the climate in Central Point 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 usually think about opening a few windows around their home or using their screen doors. While this is still conventional, it’s not realistic year-round in Central Point. That’s where we can thank the advancements in technology that have left us with heating and cooling equipment that offers the same effects of having your windows or doors cracked open for ventilation.
Today’s ventilation systems work by pulling just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the benefits of traditional ventilation while removing odors, chemicals and other impurities 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.
Picking a ventilation system is fairly easy as there are two kinds of systems used: Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERVs) and Heat Recovery Ventilators (HRVs). Nearly all of the United States, and all of Canada, are recommended to use HRVs due to the climates in those areas. ERVs are nearly exclusive to southern regions that have greater humidity levels.
Ventilation is just the beginning of things when discussing indoor air quality.
