When it comes to total home comfort and indoor air quality, there are few things like breathing in fresh, clean air throughout the year. Of course, the climate in McKinney and Frisco may not make that seem probable during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten aspect of indoor air quality that gets overlooked: ventilation.
When most people think about ventilation, they normally think about cracking a few windows in their home or using their screen doors. While this is still ordinary, it’s not realistic year-round in McKinney and Frisco. That’s where we can be grateful for the developments in technology that have left us with heating and cooling equipment that produces the same effects of having your windows or doors propped 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 getting rid of odors, chemicals and other impurities from your home’s indoor air. The process not only ensures you have nicer feeling air, but it also 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 types 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 weather in those areas. ERVs are mostly exclusive to southern regions that have increased humidity levels.
Ventilation is just the beginning of things when thinking about indoor air quality.
