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 weather in Newark may not make that seem possible 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 cracking a few windows around their home or using their screen doors. While this is still commonplace, it’s not practical year-round in Newark. That’s where we can be grateful for the developments 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 work by drawing just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the advantages 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 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 sorts 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 due to the weather in those areas. ERVs are mostly exclusive to southern regions that have greater humidity levels.
Ventilation is just the beginning of things when thinking about indoor air quality.
