When it comes to complete home comfort and indoor air quality, there are few things like breathing in fresh, clean air all the time. Of course, the weather in St. Cloud may not make that seem realistic 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 typically think about cracking a few windows in their home or using their screen doors. While this is still commonplace, it’s not realistic throughout in St. Cloud. That’s where we can be thankful for the developments in technology that have provided 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 operate by grasping just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the perks of traditional ventilation while removing odors, chemicals and other pollutants from your home’s indoor air. The process not only ensures you have 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.
Selecting a ventilation system is fairly easy as there are two kinds 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 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 discussing indoor air quality.
