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

When it comes to complete home comfort and indoor air quality, there are few things like breathing in fresh, clean air all the time. Of course, the environment in Hickory may not make that seem probable 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 normally think about propping open a few windows in their home or using their screen doors. While this is still ordinary, it’s not feasible throughout in Hickory. That’s where we can thank the advancements in technology that have presented us with heating and cooling equipment that creates the same effects of having your windows or doors opened for ventilation.

Today’s ventilation systems work 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 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 fairly easy as there are two types 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 as a result of the climates in those areas. ERVs are almost exclusive to southern regions that have higher than normal humidity levels.

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