When it comes to total home comfort and indoor air quality, there are few things like breathing in fresh, clean air throughout the year. Of course, the weather in Naples may not make that seem probable during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten piece of indoor air quality that gets ignored: ventilation.
When most people think about ventilation, they normally think about cracking a few windows throughout their home or using their screen doors. While this is still conventional, it’s not practical year-round in Naples. That’s where we can thank 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 work by pulling just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the advantages of traditional ventilation while eliminating odors, chemicals and other pollutants from your home’s indoor air. The process not only provides you with 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.
Choosing a ventilation system is pretty easy as there are two kinds 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 due to the weather in those areas. ERVs are mostly exclusive to southern regions that have higher than normal humidity levels.
Ventilation is just the beginning of things when thinking about indoor air quality.
