When it comes to total home comfort and indoor air quality, there aren’t many things like breathing in fresh, clean air year-round. Of course, the climate in Brookfield may not make that seem possible 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 normally think about propping open a few windows in their home or using their screen doors. While this is still ordinary, it’s not practical year-round in Brookfield. That’s where we can be thankful for the improvements in technology that have left us with heating and cooling equipment that creates the same effects of having your windows or doors propped open for ventilation.
Today’s ventilation systems run by pulling just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the advantages of traditional ventilation while removing odors, chemicals and other contaminants from your home’s indoor air. The process not only ensures you have nicer feeling air, but it also gets rid of 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 fairly easy as there are two types 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 as a result of the environments in those areas. ERVs are almost exclusive to southern regions that have increased humidity levels.
Ventilation is just the beginning of things when talking about indoor air quality.
