When it comes to whole home comfort and indoor air quality, there’s nothing like breathing in fresh, clean air throughout the year. Of course, the climate in Macon 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 opening a few windows throughout their home or using their screen doors. While this is still ordinary, it’s not practical year-round in Macon. That’s where we can be grateful for the developments in technology that have presented us with heating and cooling equipment that offers the same effects of having your windows or doors propped open 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 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.
Choosing 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 discussing indoor air quality.
