Ventilation: A Breath of Fresh Air for Your Grove City Home and Indoor Air Quality08/12/2015When it comes to total home comfort and indoor air quality, there’s nothing like breathing in fresh, clean air all the time. Of course, the weather in Grove City may not make that seem possible during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten piece of indoor air quality that gets unnoticed: ventilation. When most people think about ventilation, they usually think about cracking a few windows around their home or using their screen doors. While this is still conventional, it’s not feasible through the year in Grove City. 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 drawing just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the advantages of traditional ventilation while removing odors, chemicals and other impurities 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. Picking a ventilation system is fairly 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 as a result of 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.
