When it comes to whole home comfort and indoor air quality, there’s nothing like breathing in fresh, clean air throughout the year. Of course, the environment in Narvon may not make that seem probable during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten piece of indoor air quality that gets unnoticed: ventilation.

When most people think about ventilation, they usually think about opening a few windows around their home or using their screen doors. While this is still commonplace, it’s not practical year-round in Narvon. That’s where we can be thankful for the improvements in technology that have presented us with heating and cooling equipment that produces the same effects of having your windows or doors cracked open 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 contaminants from your home’s indoor air. The process not only provides you with 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 pretty easy as there are two types 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 weather in those areas. ERVs are almost exclusive to southern regions that have increased humidity levels.

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