When it comes to complete home comfort and indoor air quality, there’s nothing like breathing in fresh, clean air all the time. Of course, the climate in Haines City may not make that seem realistic during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten aspect of indoor air quality that gets unnoticed: ventilation.
When most people think about ventilation, they typically think about propping open a few windows in their home or using their screen doors. While this is still conventional, it’s not practical year-round in Haines City. That’s where we can be thankful for the improvements in technology that have presented 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 benefits 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 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 relatively easy as there are two kinds 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 higher than normal humidity levels.
Ventilation is just the beginning of things when thinking about indoor air quality.
