When it comes to whole home comfort and indoor air quality, there’s nothing like breathing in fresh, clean air throughout the year. Of course, the weather in Northglenn may not make that seem possible during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten part of indoor air quality that gets ignored: 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 conventional, it’s not practical year-round in Northglenn. That’s where we can be grateful for the advancements in technology that have left us with heating and cooling equipment that creates 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 perks 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 removes 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 fairly easy as there are two kinds 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 as a result of 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 talking about indoor air quality.
