Ventilation: A Breath of Fresh Air for Your Redford 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 all the time. Of course, the environment in Redford may not make that seem probable during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten part of indoor air quality that gets ignored: ventilation. When most people think about ventilation, they typically think about opening a few windows around their home or using their screen doors. While this is still conventional, it’s not feasible through the year in Redford. That’s where we can be thankful for the improvements 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 work by drawing just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the advantages of traditional ventilation while getting rid of odors, chemicals and other pollutants 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). Most of the United States, and all of Canada, are recommended to use HRVs as a result of the weather in those areas. ERVs are mostly exclusive to southern regions that have increased humidity levels. Ventilation is just the beginning of things when thinking about indoor air quality.
