Ventilation: A Breath of Fresh Air for Your Rocky Mount Home and Indoor Air Quality08/12/2015When it comes to total home comfort and indoor air quality, there’s nothing like breathing in fresh, clean air throughout the year. Of course, the climate in Rocky Mount 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 usually 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 Rocky Mount. That’s where we can be thankful for the advancements in technology that have left us with heating and cooling equipment that creates 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 advantages of traditional ventilation while removing odors, chemicals and other contaminants from your home’s indoor air. The process not only ensures you have nicer feeling air, it removes 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 relatively easy as there are two sorts of systems used: Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERVs) and Heat Recovery Ventilators (HRVs). The majority of the United States, and all of Canada, are recommended to use HRVs because of the environments in those areas. ERVs are nearly exclusive to southern regions that have increased humidity levels. Ventilation is just the beginning of things when talking about indoor air quality.
