When it comes to complete home comfort and indoor air quality, there are few things like breathing in fresh, clean air throughout the year. Of course, the climate in Payson may not make that seem possible during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten piece of indoor air quality that gets ignored: ventilation.
When most people think about ventilation, they usually think about cracking a few windows throughout their home or using their screen doors. While this is still ordinary, it’s not realistic year-round in Payson. That’s where we can be thankful for the improvements in technology that have presented 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 work 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 impurities from your home’s indoor air. The process not only means 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.
Selecting a ventilation system is pretty 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 as a result of 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.
