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

August 12, 2015

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 Stuart may not make that seem possible during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten aspect of indoor air quality that gets ignored: ventilation.

When most people think about ventilation, they normally think about propping open a few windows throughout their home or using their screen doors. While this is still ordinary, it’s not practical throughout in Stuart. That’s where we can thank the advancements in technology that have left us with heating and cooling equipment that creates the same effects of having your windows or doors propped open for ventilation.

Today’s ventilation systems work by grasping just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the benefits 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 eliminates 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 sorts 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 climates in those areas. ERVs are nearly exclusive to southern regions that have increased humidity levels.

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