Ventilation: A Breath of Fresh Air for Your Ridgedale and the Branson area Home and Indoor Air Quality08/12/2015When it comes to complete home comfort and indoor air quality, there aren’t many things like breathing in fresh, clean air year-round. Of course, the climate in Ridgedale and the Branson area may not make that seem possible during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten aspect of indoor air quality that gets overlooked: 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 ordinary, it’s not feasible throughout in Ridgedale and the Branson area. That’s where we can be thankful for the developments in technology that have provided us with heating and cooling equipment that creates the same effects of having your windows or doors cracked open for ventilation. Today’s ventilation systems operate 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 impurities from your home’s indoor air. The process not only provides you with 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 fairly 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 because of the weather in those areas. ERVs are nearly exclusive to southern regions that have higher than normal humidity levels. Ventilation is just the beginning of things when discussing indoor air quality.
