When it comes to whole home comfort and indoor air quality, there aren’t many things like breathing in fresh, clean air year-round. Of course, the environment in Buellton 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 conventional, it’s not practical year-round in Buellton. That’s where we can thank the advancements in technology that have provided us with heating and cooling equipment that produces the same effects of having your windows or doors cracked open 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 getting rid of odors, chemicals and other pollutants from your home’s indoor air. The process not only means 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 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 environments in those areas. ERVs are nearly exclusive to southern regions that have increased humidity levels.
