Ventilation: A Breath of Fresh Air for Your Greencastle Home and Indoor Air Quality08/12/2015When it comes to whole home comfort and indoor air quality, there are few things like breathing in fresh, clean air all the time. Of course, the weather in Greencastle may not make that seem probable 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 propping open a few windows in their home or using their screen doors. While this is still commonplace, it’s not realistic throughout in Greencastle. That’s where we can thank the developments in technology that have provided 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 work 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 provides you with nicer feeling air, it eliminates 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 pretty 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 due to the climates in those areas. ERVs are nearly exclusive to southern regions that have higher than normal humidity levels. Ventilation is just the beginning of things when talking about indoor air quality.
