Ventilation: A Breath of Fresh Air for Your Holdrege Home and Indoor Air Quality08/12/2015When 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 weather in Holdrege may not make that seem possible 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 normally think about propping open a few windows around their home or using their screen doors. While this is still conventional, it’s not realistic through the year in Holdrege. That’s where we can be thankful for the developments in technology that have left us with heating and cooling equipment that produces the same effects of having your windows or doors opened for ventilation. Today’s ventilation systems operate by grasping just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the perks of traditional ventilation while getting rid of 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 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 as a result of the climates in those areas. ERVs are almost exclusive to southern regions that have higher than normal humidity levels. Ventilation is just the beginning of things when thinking about indoor air quality.
