Ventilation: A Breath of Fresh Air for Your Moline Home and Indoor Air Quality08/12/2015When it comes to complete home comfort and indoor air quality, there are few things like breathing in fresh, clean air year-round. Of course, the climate in Moline may not make that seem realistic during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten aspect of indoor air quality that gets ignored: ventilation. When most people think about ventilation, they normally think about propping open a few windows around their home or using their screen doors. While this is still conventional, it’s not feasible through the year in Moline. That’s where we can be grateful for the advancements in technology that have left us with heating and cooling equipment that creates the same effects of having your windows or doors opened for ventilation. Today’s ventilation systems run by pulling just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the benefits of traditional ventilation while eliminating odors, chemicals and other impurities from your home’s indoor air. The process not only means you have nicer feeling air, it 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 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 climates in those areas. ERVs are nearly exclusive to southern regions that have greater humidity levels. Ventilation is just the beginning of things when talking about indoor air quality.
