Ventilation: A Breath of Fresh Air for Your Lake Worth Home and Indoor Air Quality

When it comes to total home comfort and indoor air quality, there are few things like breathing in fresh, clean air year-round. Of course, the climate 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 ignored: ventilation.

When most people think about ventilation, they usually think about propping open a few windows in their home or using their screen doors. While this is still ordinary, it’s not feasible through the year in Lake Worth. That’s where we can thank the developments in technology that have provided us with heating and cooling equipment that offers the same effects of having your windows or doors cracked open for ventilation.

Today’s ventilation systems run by drawing just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the benefits of traditional ventilation while removing odors, chemicals and other impurities from your home’s indoor air. The process not only provides you with 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 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 due to the climates in those areas. ERVs are almost exclusive to southern regions that have higher than normal humidity levels.

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