Ventilation: A Breath of Fresh Air for Your Zelienople Home and Indoor Air Quality08/12/2015When it comes to complete home comfort and indoor air quality, there aren’t many things like breathing in fresh, clean air year-round. Of course, the environment in Zelienople may not make that seem possible during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten aspect of indoor air quality that gets unnoticed: ventilation. When most people think about ventilation, they typically think about propping open a few windows throughout their home or using their screen doors.

That’s where we can thank the improvements in technology that have presented us with heating and cooling equipment that produces the same effects of having your windows or doors opened for ventilation. Today’s ventilation systems run by grasping just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the benefits of traditional ventilation while removing odors, chemicals and other pollutants from your home’s indoor air. The process not only means you have nicer feeling air, it eliminates 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 sorts of systems used: Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERVs) and Heat Recovery Ventilators (HRVs). Nearly all of the United States, and all of Canada, are recommended to use HRVs due to the climates in those areas. ERVs are nearly exclusive to southern regions that have increased humidity levels. Ventilation is just the beginning of things when discussing indoor air quality.
