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 Mechanicsburg may not make that seem realistic 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 typically think about opening a few windows in their home or using their screen doors. While this is still ordinary, it’s not realistic year-round in Mechanicsburg. That’s where we can be thankful for the advancements in technology that have left us with heating and cooling equipment that produces the same effects of having your windows or doors cracked open for ventilation.
Today’s ventilation systems work by grasping just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the advantages of traditional ventilation while eliminating odors, chemicals and other contaminants from your home’s indoor air. The process not only provides you with 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.
Picking a ventilation system is pretty 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 because of the climates 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.
