Ventilation: A Breath of Fresh Air for Your San Angelo Home and Indoor Air Quality08/12/2015When it comes to complete home comfort and indoor air quality, there’s nothing like breathing in fresh, clean air throughout the year. Of course, the climate in San Angelo may not make that seem possible 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 normally think about cracking a few windows around their home or using their screen doors. While this is still commonplace, it’s not feasible through the year in San Angelo. That’s where we can be thankful for the developments in technology that have provided us with heating and cooling equipment that offers the same effects of having your windows or doors opened for ventilation. Today’s ventilation systems operate by pulling just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the perks of traditional ventilation while removing odors, chemicals and other impurities from your home’s indoor air. The process not only means 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. Selecting a ventilation system is fairly 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 because of the environments in those areas. ERVs are nearly exclusive to southern regions that have greater humidity levels. Ventilation is just the beginning of things when discussing indoor air quality.
