Ventilation: A Breath of Fresh Air for Your Minocqua Home and Indoor Air Quality08/12/2015When it comes to whole home comfort and indoor air quality, there aren’t many things like breathing in fresh, clean air throughout the year. Of course, the climate in Minocqua may not make that seem realistic 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 cracking a few windows throughout their home or using their screen doors. While this is still ordinary, it’s not realistic year-round in Minocqua. That’s where we can be grateful for the developments in technology that have presented 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 drawing just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the benefits of traditional ventilation while eliminating odors, chemicals and other pollutants from your home’s indoor air. The process not only ensures you have nicer feeling air, it eliminates 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 pretty 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 due to the weather in those areas. ERVs are nearly exclusive to southern regions that have greater humidity levels. Ventilation is just the beginning of things when discussing indoor air quality.
