Ventilation: A Breath of Fresh Air for Your East Hanover 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 East Hanover may not make that seem realistic during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten part of indoor air quality that gets overlooked: ventilation. When most people think about ventilation, they typically think about cracking a few windows in their home or using their screen doors. While this is still commonplace, it’s not realistic throughout in East Hanover. 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 drawing 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 pollutants from your home’s indoor air. The process not only ensures 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. Picking a ventilation system is pretty easy as there are two sorts 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 as a result of the weather in those areas. ERVs are mostly exclusive to southern regions that have increased humidity levels. Ventilation is just the beginning of things when talking about indoor air quality.
