When it comes to whole home comfort and indoor air quality, there aren’t many things like breathing in fresh, clean air year-round. Of course, the environment in Brookfield 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 typically think about opening a few windows throughout their home or using their screen doors. While this is still commonplace, it’s not practical year-round in Brookfield. That’s where we can be thankful for the developments in technology that have presented us with heating and cooling equipment that produces the same effects of having your windows or doors propped open for ventilation.

Today’s ventilation systems run by grasping 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 means you have nicer feeling air, but it also eliminates 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 pretty easy as there are two kinds 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 environments in those areas. ERVs are nearly exclusive to southern regions that have increased humidity levels.

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