When it comes to total home comfort and indoor air quality, there are few things like breathing in fresh, clean air all the time. Of course, the climate in Murrieta may not make that seem possible during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten aspect of indoor air quality that gets ignored: ventilation.
When most people think about ventilation, they usually think about propping open a few windows throughout their home or using their screen doors. While this is still commonplace, it’s not realistic year-round in Murrieta. That’s where we can be thankful for the improvements in technology that have presented us with heating and cooling equipment that offers the same effects of having your windows or doors opened for ventilation.
Today’s ventilation systems operate by pulling 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 provides you with 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.
Choosing a ventilation system is fairly easy as there are two types 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 environments in those areas. ERVs are mostly exclusive to southern regions that have increased humidity levels.
Ventilation is just the beginning of things when talking about indoor air quality.
