When it comes to whole home comfort and indoor air quality, there aren’t many things like breathing in fresh, clean air all the time. Of course, the climate in Rock Hill may not make that seem probable during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten piece of indoor air quality that gets overlooked: ventilation.
When most people think about ventilation, they usually think about propping open a few windows around their home or using their screen doors. While this is still ordinary, it’s not realistic year-round in Rock Hill. That’s where we can be grateful for the improvements in technology that have left us with heating and cooling equipment that produces the same effects of having your windows or doors propped open for ventilation.
Today’s ventilation systems run by drawing just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the advantages of traditional ventilation while eliminating odors, chemicals and other pollutants from your home’s indoor air. The process not only provides you with nicer feeling air, but it also eliminates 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 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 as a result of the climates in those areas. ERVs are almost exclusive to southern regions that have higher than normal humidity levels.
Ventilation is just the beginning of things when thinking about indoor air quality.
