Ventilation: A Breath of Fresh Air for Your Crestview Home and Indoor Air Quality

When it comes to whole home comfort and indoor air quality, there are few things like breathing in fresh, clean air all the time. Of course, the weather in Crestview may not make that seem realistic during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten part of indoor air quality that gets overlooked: ventilation.

When most people think about ventilation, they usually think about cracking a few windows around their home or using their screen doors. While this is still ordinary, it’s not feasible throughout in Crestview. That’s where we can be thankful for the advancements in technology that have left us with heating and cooling equipment that offers the same effects of having your windows or doors propped open for ventilation.

Today’s ventilation systems operate by drawing just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the perks of traditional ventilation while eliminating odors, chemicals and other impurities from your home’s indoor air. The process not only provides you with nicer feeling air, it removes stale air from your home, helping make your home’s air as comfortable as it can be without wasting energy.

Picking a ventilation system is relatively 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 climates in those areas. ERVs are nearly exclusive to southern regions that have higher than normal humidity levels.

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