Ventilation: A Breath of Fresh Air for Your Orrville Home and Indoor Air Quality08/12/2015When it comes to complete home comfort and indoor air quality, there aren’t many things like breathing in fresh, clean air year-round. Of course, the climate in Orrville may not make that seem possible during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten piece of indoor air quality that gets ignored: ventilation. When most people think about ventilation, they usually think about cracking a few windows throughout their home or using their screen doors. While this is still conventional, it’s not feasible throughout in Orrville. That’s where we can thank the improvements in technology that have left us with heating and cooling equipment that creates the same effects of having your windows or doors cracked open for ventilation. Today’s ventilation systems work by drawing just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the advantages of traditional ventilation while eliminating odors, chemicals and other contaminants from your home’s indoor air. The process not only provides you with nicer feeling air, it eliminates 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 relatively 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 as a result of the environments in those areas. ERVs are mostly exclusive to southern regions that have higher than normal humidity levels. Ventilation is just the beginning of things when discussing indoor air quality.
