Ventilation: A Breath of Fresh Air for Your Branchville Home and Indoor Air Quality

Air Quality

When it comes to whole home comfort and indoor air quality, there’s nothing like breathing in fresh, clean air year-round. Of course, the environment in Branchville may not make that seem probable during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten piece of indoor air quality that gets unnoticed: ventilation.

When most people think about ventilation, they usually think about cracking a few windows in their home or using their screen doors. While this is still ordinary, it’s not feasible through the year in Branchville. That’s where we can thank the advancements in technology that have presented 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 pulling just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the perks of traditional ventilation while getting rid of odors, chemicals and other contaminants from your home’s indoor air. The process not only means you have 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 pretty 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 weather in those areas. ERVs are mostly exclusive to southern regions that have greater humidity levels.

Ventilation is just the beginning of things when discussing indoor air quality.
