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 environment in Georgetown may not make that seem probable 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 normally think about propping open a few windows throughout their home or using their screen doors. While this is still ordinary, it’s not feasible year-round in Georgetown. That’s where we can be thankful for the developments in technology that have provided us with heating and cooling equipment that produces the same effects of having your windows or doors cracked open for ventilation.
Today’s ventilation systems run by grasping 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, but it also eliminates 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 talking about indoor air quality.
