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 environment in Temple/Belton may not make that seem realistic during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten aspect of indoor air quality that gets overlooked: ventilation.
When most people think about ventilation, they normally think about propping open a few windows in their home or using their screen doors. While this is still commonplace, it’s not feasible year-round in Temple/Belton . That’s where we can be grateful for the improvements in technology that have provided 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 grasping just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the advantages of traditional ventilation while getting rid of odors, chemicals and other impurities from your home’s indoor air. The process not only provides you with 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.
Choosing a ventilation system is fairly easy as there are two sorts of systems used: Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERVs) and Heat Recovery Ventilators (HRVs). Most of the United States, and all of Canada, are recommended to use HRVs because of the environments in those areas. ERVs are nearly exclusive to southern regions that have greater humidity levels.
Ventilation is just the beginning of things when thinking about indoor air quality.
