When it comes to complete home comfort and indoor air quality, there’s nothing like breathing in fresh, clean air throughout the year. Of course, the weather in Lake Worth 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 typically think about propping open a few windows throughout their home or using their screen doors. While this is still commonplace, it’s not practical through the year in Lake Worth. That’s where we can be grateful for the improvements in technology that have provided us with heating and cooling equipment that creates the same effects of having your windows or doors opened for ventilation.
Today’s ventilation systems operate by pulling just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the advantages of traditional ventilation while getting rid of odors, chemicals and other impurities from your home’s indoor air. The process not only ensures 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.
Selecting a ventilation system is relatively easy as there are two kinds 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 almost exclusive to southern regions that have higher than normal humidity levels.
