When it comes to whole home comfort and indoor air quality, there are few things like breathing in fresh, clean air year-round. Of course, the environment in Dresden may not make that seem possible during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten part of indoor air quality that gets ignored: ventilation.
When most people think about ventilation, they typically think about opening a few windows throughout their home or using their screen doors. While this is still ordinary, it’s not realistic year-round in Dresden. That’s where we can be thankful for the developments in technology that have presented us with heating and cooling equipment that offers 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 benefits 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, but it also 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 fairly 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 due to the weather 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.
