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

August 12, 2015

When it comes to whole home comfort and indoor air quality, there aren’t many things like breathing in fresh, clean air year-round. Of course, the climate 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 ignored: ventilation.

When most people think about ventilation, they usually think about propping open a few windows in their home or using their screen doors. While this is still ordinary, it’s not feasible year-round in Branchville. That’s where we can thank the improvements in technology that have presented us with heating and cooling equipment that creates the same effects of having your windows or doors opened for ventilation.

Today’s ventilation systems run by drawing just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the advantages of traditional ventilation while eliminating odors, chemicals and other pollutants from your home’s indoor air. The process not only ensures 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 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 due to the environments in those areas. ERVs are mostly exclusive to southern regions that have higher than normal humidity levels.

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