Ventilation: A Breath of Fresh Air for Your Chatsworth Home and Indoor Air Quality08/12/2015When it comes to whole home comfort and indoor air quality, there’s nothing like breathing in fresh, clean air all the time. Of course, the environment in Chatsworth may not make that seem probable 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 normally think about cracking a few windows in their home or using their screen doors. While this is still conventional, it’s not realistic through the year in Chatsworth. That’s where we can be thankful for the improvements in technology that have presented us with heating and cooling equipment that offers the same effects of having your windows or doors cracked 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 removing odors, chemicals and other contaminants from your home’s indoor air. The process not only ensures 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. Picking a ventilation system is relatively easy as there are two kinds 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 due to the weather in those areas. ERVs are almost exclusive to southern regions that have increased humidity levels. Ventilation is just the beginning of things when discussing indoor air quality.
