Ventilation: A Breath of Fresh Air for Your Hendersonville Home and Indoor Air Quality08/12/2015When 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 weather in Hendersonville may not make that seem realistic during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten part of indoor air quality that gets unnoticed: ventilation. When most people think about ventilation, they usually think about opening a few windows around their home or using their screen doors. While this is still conventional, it’s not realistic through the year in Hendersonville. That’s where we can be grateful for the advancements in technology that have provided us with heating and cooling equipment that produces 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 getting rid of 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 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 because of the climates in those areas. ERVs are almost exclusive to southern regions that have increased humidity levels. Ventilation is just the beginning of things when thinking about indoor air quality.
