When it comes to complete home comfort and indoor air quality, there are few things like breathing in fresh, clean air year-round. Of course, the climate in Neptune City may not make that seem possible during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten piece of indoor air quality that gets overlooked: ventilation.
When most people think about ventilation, they normally think about cracking a few windows throughout their home or using their screen doors. While this is still ordinary, it’s not realistic year-round in Neptune City. 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 opened for ventilation.
Today’s ventilation systems operate by pulling just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the benefits 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, but it also 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 types of systems used: Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERVs) and Heat Recovery Ventilators (HRVs). The majority 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.
