Ventilation: A Breath of Fresh Air for Your Plover Home and Indoor Air Quality

Air Quality

When 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 environment in Plover may not make that seem realistic during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten aspect of indoor air quality that gets ignored: ventilation.

When most people think about ventilation, they typically think about opening a few windows around their home or using their screen doors. While this is still ordinary, it’s not feasible year-round in Plover. That’s where we can be grateful for the advancements in technology that have provided us with heating and cooling equipment that produces the same effects of having your windows or doors opened for ventilation.

Today’s ventilation systems work by drawing just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the perks of traditional ventilation while removing odors, chemicals and other contaminants from your home’s indoor air. The process not only means 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.

Selecting a ventilation system is relatively easy as there are two kinds 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 weather 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 discussing indoor air quality.
