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 environment in McKinney and Frisco may not make that seem realistic during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten part of indoor air quality that gets unnoticed: ventilation.

When most people think about ventilation, they normally think about propping open a few windows around their home or using their screen doors. While this is still ordinary, it’s not feasible year-round in McKinney and Frisco. That’s where we can thank the developments in technology that have provided us with heating and cooling equipment that produces the same effects of having your windows or doors opened for ventilation.

Today’s ventilation systems work by pulling 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 provides you with 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 kinds 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 because of the weather in those areas. ERVs are nearly exclusive to southern regions that have increased humidity levels.

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