When it comes to total home comfort and indoor air quality, there’s nothing like breathing in fresh, clean air all the time. Of course, the climate in Norton may not make that seem realistic during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten piece of indoor air quality that gets overlooked: ventilation.
When most people think about ventilation, they usually 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 Norton. That’s where we can be thankful for the developments in technology that have provided 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 run by grasping just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the advantages of traditional ventilation while eliminating 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.
Picking a ventilation system is pretty 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 due to the weather in those areas. ERVs are mostly exclusive to southern regions that have higher than normal humidity levels.
Ventilation is just the beginning of things when discussing indoor air quality.
