When it comes to complete home comfort and indoor air quality, there aren’t many things like breathing in fresh, clean air all the time. Of course, the weather in Genoa may not make that seem possible during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten piece of indoor air quality that gets ignored: ventilation.
When most people think about ventilation, they normally think about cracking a few windows throughout their home or using their screen doors. While this is still conventional, it’s not feasible year-round in Genoa. 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 opened 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 eliminating 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.
Picking a ventilation system is fairly easy as there are two types 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 mostly exclusive to southern regions that have greater humidity levels.
Ventilation is just the beginning of things when thinking about indoor air quality.
