When it comes to complete home comfort and indoor air quality, there’s nothing like breathing in fresh, clean air all the time. Of course, the weather in Muskogee may not make that seem probable during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten piece of indoor air quality that gets overlooked: ventilation.
When most people think about ventilation, they typically think about cracking a few windows throughout their home or using their screen doors. While this is still commonplace, it’s not practical year-round in Muskogee. That’s where we can thank the advancements in technology that have provided us with heating and cooling equipment that offers the same effects of having your windows or doors opened for ventilation.
Today’s ventilation systems operate by drawing just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the advantages of traditional ventilation while removing odors, chemicals and other pollutants from your home’s indoor air. The process not only means you have nicer feeling air, but it also 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 fairly easy as there are two kinds of systems used: Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERVs) and Heat Recovery Ventilators (HRVs). The majority of the United States, and all of Canada, are recommended to use HRVs due to the environments in those areas. ERVs are nearly exclusive to southern regions that have greater humidity levels.
Ventilation is just the beginning of things when thinking about indoor air quality.
