When you picture indoor air quality, you might imagine the fresh, clean spring air gliding through an open window and a comfortable home—a feeling you may wish for all year. Unfortunately, the weather in Georgetown makes this difficult during the less pleasant months. Should you just give up this fresh air just because the weather isn’t nice? The answer is “no.” With good ventilation, your indoor air quality can be premium—no matter what it’s like outside.
Ventilation is more than just opening a few windows or doors in your home. While it's definitely revitalizing on beautiful, mild days, it’s not something you can do year-round in Georgetown. The positive is that technological advances have allowed us to replicate the benefits of clean, fresh air flowing through your windows and doors using your heating and cooling equipment.
By tapping into just the right amount of fresh, outdoor air, today’s ventilation systems provide you with the advantages of conventional ventilation like eliminating odors, chemicals and other contaminants from your indoor air. This process eliminates stale air from your home and creates nicer feeling air. It’s a fantastic way to make your home’s air as comfortable as possible without wasting energy.
There are two types of ventilation systems available: Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERVs) and Heat Recovery Ventilators (HRVs). Because of the climate, it's recommended that homes in most of the United States and all of Canada to use HRVs. ERVs are used most often in the muggy southern regions.
