When it comes to total home comfort and indoor air quality, there aren’t many things like breathing in fresh, clean air year-round. Of course, the climate in Tomball may not make that seem realistic during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten part of indoor air quality that gets unnoticed: ventilation.
When most people think about ventilation, they typically think about opening a few windows in their home or using their screen doors. While this is still ordinary, it’s not feasible year-round in Tomball. That’s where we can be grateful for the improvements in technology that have left us with heating and cooling equipment that offers the same effects of having your windows or doors cracked open for ventilation.
Today’s ventilation systems operate by pulling just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the advantages of traditional ventilation while eliminating odors, chemicals and other pollutants 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 pretty easy as there are two types 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 environments 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 thinking about indoor air quality.
