Ventilation: A Breath of Fresh Air for Your Englewood Home and Indoor Air Quality08/12/2015When it comes to whole home comfort and indoor air quality, there are few things like breathing in fresh, clean air throughout the year. Of course, the climate in Englewood may not make that seem realistic 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 typically think about opening a few windows around their home or using their screen doors. While this is still commonplace, it’s not practical throughout in Englewood. That’s where we can thank the developments in technology that have presented us with heating and cooling equipment that produces the same effects of having your windows or doors propped 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 pollutants from your home’s indoor air. The process not only provides you with nicer feeling air, it gets rid of 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 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 due to the climates in those areas. ERVs are mostly exclusive to southern regions that have increased humidity levels. Ventilation is just the beginning of things when thinking about indoor air quality.
