Ventilation: A Breath of Fresh Air for Your Shelby Township Home and Indoor Air Quality08/12/2015When it comes to whole home comfort and indoor air quality, there’s nothing like breathing in fresh, clean air year-round. Of course, the environment in Shelby Township may not make that seem realistic during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten aspect of indoor air quality that gets ignored: ventilation. When most people think about ventilation, they normally think about propping open a few windows in their home or using their screen doors. While this is still commonplace, it’s not feasible through the year in Shelby Township . That’s where we can be grateful for the improvements in technology that have provided us with heating and cooling equipment that offers the same effects of having your windows or doors propped open for ventilation. Today’s ventilation systems run by pulling just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the perks of traditional ventilation while eliminating odors, chemicals and other pollutants from your home’s indoor air. The process not only means 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. Picking a ventilation system is relatively 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 as a result of the weather in those areas. ERVs are almost exclusive to southern regions that have increased humidity levels. Ventilation is just the beginning of things when discussing indoor air quality.
