When it comes to total home comfort and indoor air quality, there’s nothing like breathing in fresh, clean air throughout the year. Of course, the climate in Naples may not make that seem possible during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten piece of indoor air quality that gets overlooked: ventilation.
When most people think about ventilation, they typically think about opening a few windows in their home or using their screen doors. While this is still commonplace, it’s not feasible through the year in Naples. That’s where we can thank the improvements in technology that have provided 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 grasping 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, it 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 types 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 as a result of the climates in those areas. ERVs are almost exclusive to southern regions that have increased humidity levels.
Ventilation is just the beginning of things when talking about indoor air quality.
