When it comes to total home comfort and indoor air quality, there aren’t many things like breathing in fresh, clean air year-round. Of course, the climate in Safford may not make that seem realistic during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten part of indoor air quality that gets ignored: ventilation.
When most people think about ventilation, they typically think about opening a few windows around their home or using their screen doors. While this is still ordinary, it’s not realistic year-round in Safford. That’s where we can be thankful 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 opened for ventilation.
Today’s ventilation systems work by pulling just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the perks of traditional ventilation while removing odors, chemicals and other impurities from your home’s indoor air. The process not only ensures you have nicer feeling air, but it also eliminates stale air from your home, helping make your home’s air as comfortable as it can be without wasting energy.
Selecting 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 weather in those areas. ERVs are almost exclusive to southern regions that have greater humidity levels.
Ventilation is just the beginning of things when discussing indoor air quality.
