When it comes to complete home comfort and indoor air quality, there’s nothing like breathing in fresh, clean air year-round. Of course, the weather in Moline may not make that seem realistic 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 cracking a few windows in their home or using their screen doors. While this is still conventional, it’s not feasible year-round in Moline. That’s where we can be thankful for the advancements in technology that have left us with heating and cooling equipment that offers the same effects of having your windows or doors propped open for ventilation.
Today’s ventilation systems work by pulling 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 contaminants from your home’s indoor air. The process not only provides you with 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.
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 because of the environments in those areas. ERVs are mostly exclusive to southern regions that have increased humidity levels.
Ventilation is just the beginning of things when talking about indoor air quality.
