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 environment in New Castle may not make that seem realistic 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 commonplace, it’s not realistic year-round in New Castle. That’s where we can be thankful for the developments in technology that have left us with heating and cooling equipment that produces the same effects of having your windows or doors opened for ventilation.
Today’s ventilation systems run by drawing just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the advantages of traditional ventilation while getting rid of odors, chemicals and other impurities 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). The majority of the United States, and all of Canada, are recommended to use HRVs because of the environments in those areas. ERVs are almost exclusive to southern regions that have increased humidity levels.
Ventilation is just the beginning of things when talking about indoor air quality.
