Ventilation: A Breath of Fresh Air for Your Chadron Home and Indoor Air Quality08/12/2015When 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 environment in Chadron may not make that seem possible during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten part of indoor air quality that gets overlooked: ventilation. When most people think about ventilation, they usually think about opening a few windows throughout their home or using their screen doors. While this is still ordinary, it’s not feasible through the year in Chadron. That’s where we can be grateful for the developments in technology that have left us with heating and cooling equipment that produces the same effects of having your windows or doors propped open for ventilation. Today’s ventilation systems run by pulling just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the perks of traditional ventilation while eliminating odors, chemicals and other contaminants from your home’s indoor air. The process not only provides you with 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. Selecting a ventilation system is pretty easy as there are two types of systems used: Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERVs) and Heat Recovery Ventilators (HRVs). Most of the United States, and all of Canada, are recommended to use HRVs as a result of 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 talking about indoor air quality.
