Ventilation: A Breath of Fresh Air for Your Reeds Spring Home and Indoor Air Quality08/12/2015When it comes to total home comfort and indoor air quality, there aren’t many things like breathing in fresh, clean air all the time. Of course, the weather in Reeds Spring may not make that seem possible during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten aspect of indoor air quality that gets overlooked: ventilation. When most people think about ventilation, they normally think about propping open a few windows around their home or using their screen doors. While this is still commonplace, it’s not realistic through the year in Reeds Spring. That’s where we can be grateful for the developments in technology that have provided us with heating and cooling equipment that offers the same effects of having your windows or doors opened for ventilation. Today’s ventilation systems run by grasping just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the perks of traditional ventilation while eliminating odors, chemicals and other impurities 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 sorts 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 almost exclusive to southern regions that have increased humidity levels. Ventilation is just the beginning of things when talking about indoor air quality.
