When it comes to complete home comfort and indoor air quality, there’s nothing like breathing in fresh, clean air year-round. Of course, the weather in Paxinos may not make that seem realistic during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten aspect of indoor air quality that gets ignored: ventilation.
When most people think about ventilation, they normally 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 Paxinos. That’s where we can be thankful for the improvements in technology that have provided 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 operate by drawing just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the perks of traditional ventilation while eliminating odors, chemicals and other impurities from your home’s indoor air. The process not only ensures you have nicer feeling air, but it also 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 relatively easy as there are two sorts 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 weather in those areas. ERVs are nearly exclusive to southern regions that have higher than normal humidity levels.
Ventilation is just the beginning of things when talking about indoor air quality.
