When it comes to total 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 Wisconsin Rapids 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 usually think about propping open a few windows in their home or using their screen doors. While this is still ordinary, it’s not realistic throughout in Wisconsin Rapids. That’s where we can thank the developments in technology that have left us with heating and cooling equipment that creates the same effects of having your windows or doors opened for ventilation.
Today’s ventilation systems run by grasping just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the benefits of traditional ventilation while removing odors, chemicals and other pollutants from your home’s indoor air. The process not only provides you with nicer feeling air, it removes 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). Nearly all of the United States, and all of Canada, are recommended to use HRVs due to the climates 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.
