When it comes to whole home comfort and indoor air quality, there aren’t many things like breathing in fresh, clean air all the time. Of course, the environment in Paxinos may not make that seem probable during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten part of indoor air quality that gets ignored: ventilation.
When most people think about ventilation, they usually think about propping open a few windows around their home or using their screen doors. While this is still ordinary, it’s not feasible through the year in Paxinos. That’s where we can be grateful for the advancements in technology that have presented us with heating and cooling equipment that offers the same effects of having your windows or doors propped open for ventilation.
Today’s ventilation systems run by drawing 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 eliminates 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 relatively easy as there are two types 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 environments in those areas. ERVs are almost exclusive to southern regions that have increased humidity levels.
Ventilation is just the beginning of things when thinking about indoor air quality.
