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

August 12, 2015

When it comes to complete home comfort and indoor air quality, there aren’t many things like breathing in fresh, clean air throughout the year. Of course, the weather in Justin may not make that seem realistic during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten piece of indoor air quality that gets unnoticed: 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 feasible through the year in Justin. That’s where we can be thankful for the developments 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 operate by drawing just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the advantages of traditional ventilation while eliminating odors, chemicals and other impurities from your home’s indoor air. The process not only means 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.

Selecting a ventilation system is relatively 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 because of the environments in those areas. ERVs are mostly exclusive to southern regions that have increased humidity levels.

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