Ventilation: A Breath of Fresh Air for Your Safford Home and Indoor Air Quality08/12/2015When it comes to complete home comfort and indoor air quality, there aren’t many things like breathing in fresh, clean air year-round. Of course, the weather in Safford may not make that seem probable during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten aspect of indoor air quality that gets unnoticed: ventilation. When most people think about ventilation, they usually think about opening a few windows throughout their home or using their screen doors. While this is still conventional, it’s not realistic year-round in Safford. That’s where we can be grateful for the developments in technology that have provided us with heating and cooling equipment that creates the same effects of having your windows or doors propped open for ventilation. Today’s ventilation systems work 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 provides you with nicer feeling air, it gets rid of 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). The majority of the United States, and all of Canada, are recommended to use HRVs because of the environments in those areas. ERVs are nearly exclusive to southern regions that have greater humidity levels. Ventilation is just the beginning of things when discussing indoor air quality.
