Contemporary houses are made with efficiency as a goal. But that also means they’re thoroughly sealed and can have stuffy air.

With proper ventilation, your home can avoid mildew, allergen buildup and similar air quality challenges. Efficient ventilation also allows you to remove strong odors, like food smells or tobacco smoke.

While cracking a window can help for a bit, it doesn’t work year-round. It can also be difficult if anyone in your family deals with allergies.

Three Indications Your Family Needs a Ventilation System

There are a several indications you need house ventilation, including:

Odors Never Go Away

You might have a house ventilation issue if you have trouble getting rid of intense odors, like cooking smells or cigarette smoke.

Stagnant Air

Your house’s air should be fresh, not stale or stuffy.

Excess Dust

While some dust is inevitable, rooms with poor airflow might have a substantial amount of dust.

Classes of Ventilation Systems

There are two categories of ventilation systems—heat recovery ventilation (HRV) and energy recovery ventilation (ERV).

Both are perfect for new homes or renovated homes with energy upgrades, but are built with different climates in mind.

Places with a wide assortment of weather patterns, including the Midwest, can find value from both systems. Contact us for extra information about which system is best for Buellton.

Heat Recovery Ventilation

HRV operates best in chillier climates. It exhausts air from your house, replacing it with fresh air from around your home.

As an energy-efficient option, it holds on to the heat from your indoor air. That way, you shouldn’t have to pay to heat fresh (but chillier) air from the outdoors.

Energy Recovery Ventilation

ERV is great for warm, humid climates. It draws the heat and moisture out of your space’s air and guides it outside. This helps you keep the best humidity levels in your house. Balanced humidity can keep your house more comfortable and cause you to use your air conditioning less frequently—saving you more money on cooling costs.

Which Ventilation System is Best for Your Home?

There are two varieties of ventilation equipment—heat recovery ventilation (HRV) and energy recovery ventilation (ERV).

While they’re each suited for new or remodeled energy-efficient homes, the type you need is dependent on your local climate. Homes in certain areas, such as the Midwest, can benefit from both systems.
