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

Air Quality

When it comes to whole home comfort and indoor air quality, there are few things like breathing in fresh, clean air all the time. Of course, the climate in Waxahachie 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 normally think about opening a few windows in their home or using their screen doors. While this is still commonplace, it’s not feasible throughout in Waxahachie. That’s where we can thank the developments in technology that have provided us with heating and cooling equipment that creates the same effects of having your windows or doors opened for ventilation.

Today’s ventilation systems operate by pulling just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the advantages of traditional ventilation while getting rid of odors, chemicals and other pollutants from your home’s indoor air. The process not only ensures you have nicer feeling air, it eliminates stale air from your home, helping make your home’s air as comfortable as it can be without wasting energy.

Choosing 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 because of the environments in those areas. ERVs are mostly exclusive to southern regions that have increased humidity levels.

Ventilation is just the beginning of things when talking about indoor air quality.
