When it comes to complete home comfort and indoor air quality, there aren’t many things like breathing in fresh, clean air throughout the year. Of course, the climate in Haines City may not make that seem probable during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten part of indoor air quality that gets overlooked: ventilation.
When most people think about ventilation, they normally think about propping open a few windows throughout their home or using their screen doors. While this is still ordinary, it’s not practical year-round in Haines City. That’s where we can thank the developments in technology that have presented us with heating and cooling equipment that creates the same effects of having your windows or doors propped open for ventilation.
Today’s ventilation systems work by drawing just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the benefits of traditional ventilation while getting rid of odors, chemicals and other contaminants from your home’s indoor air. The process not only ensures you have nicer feeling air, but it also removes 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 due to 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 discussing indoor air quality.
