When it comes to complete home comfort and indoor air quality, there aren’t many things like breathing in fresh, clean air throughout the year. Of course, the environment in Neptune City 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 typically think about cracking a few windows around their home or using their screen doors. While this is still conventional, it’s not realistic year-round in Neptune City. That’s where we can thank the developments 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 contaminants from your home’s indoor air. The process not only means you have nicer feeling air, but it also removes stale air from your home, helping make your home’s air as comfortable as it can be without wasting energy.
Selecting a ventilation system is fairly easy as there are two kinds 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 environments in those areas. ERVs are almost exclusive to southern regions that have greater humidity levels.
Ventilation is just the beginning of things when talking about indoor air quality.
