Ventilation: A Breath of Fresh Air for Your Bloomington Home and Indoor Air Quality08/12/2015When it comes to total home comfort and indoor air quality, there are few things like breathing in fresh, clean air all the time. Of course, the climate in Bloomington may not make that seem probable during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten aspect of indoor air quality that gets unnoticed: 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 conventional, it’s not feasible through the year in Bloomington. That’s where we can be grateful for the improvements in technology that have left us with heating and cooling equipment that produces 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 advantages of traditional ventilation while eliminating odors, chemicals and other pollutants from your home’s indoor air. The process not only ensures you have nicer feeling air, it gets rid of 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 fairly easy as there are two sorts of systems used: Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERVs) and Heat Recovery Ventilators (HRVs). Most of the United States, and all of Canada, are recommended to use HRVs because of 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 talking about indoor air quality.
