When it comes to complete home comfort and indoor air quality, there are few things like breathing in fresh, clean air throughout the year. Of course, the weather in Boynton Beach may not make that seem realistic during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten part of indoor air quality that gets overlooked: ventilation.
When most people think about ventilation, they usually think about propping open a few windows around their home or using their screen doors. While this is still ordinary, it’s not feasible year-round in Boynton Beach. That’s where we can thank the improvements in technology that have left us with heating and cooling equipment that creates the same effects of having your windows or doors cracked open for ventilation.
Today’s ventilation systems run by grasping just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the advantages of traditional ventilation while removing odors, chemicals and other contaminants from your home’s indoor air. The process not only ensures you have nicer feeling air, but it also gets rid of 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 fairly 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 greater humidity levels.
Ventilation is just the beginning of things when thinking about indoor air quality.
