Ventilation: A Breath of Fresh Air for Your Boynton Beach Home and Indoor Air Quality

August 12, 2015

When it comes to whole home comfort and indoor air quality, there’s nothing like breathing in fresh, clean air throughout the year. Of course, the climate in Boynton Beach may not make that seem probable during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten aspect of indoor air quality that gets overlooked: ventilation.

When most people think about ventilation, they normally think about propping open a few windows in their home or using their screen doors. While this is still conventional, it’s not practical throughout in Boynton Beach. That’s where we can be thankful for the advancements in technology that have presented us with heating and cooling equipment that offers the same effects of having your windows or doors cracked open for ventilation.

Today’s ventilation systems run by drawing just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the perks of traditional ventilation while getting rid of odors, chemicals and other pollutants from your home’s indoor air. The process not only ensures you have nicer feeling air, it removes 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 types 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 due to the climates in those areas. ERVs are nearly exclusive to southern regions that have greater humidity levels.

Ventilation is just the beginning of things when thinking about indoor air quality.
