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 climate in Greensburg may not make that seem probable during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten aspect of indoor air quality that gets ignored: ventilation.
When most people think about ventilation, they normally think about cracking a few windows in their home or using their screen doors. While this is still commonplace, it’s not realistic year-round in Greensburg. That’s where we can thank the advancements in technology that have presented 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 operate by grasping just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the advantages of traditional ventilation while removing odors, chemicals and other impurities from your home’s indoor air. The process not only ensures you have nicer feeling air, but it also 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 pretty 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 as a result of the climates 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.
