Ventilation: A Breath of Fresh Air for Your Port Saint Lucie 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 all the time. Of course, the weather in Port Saint Lucie may not make that seem realistic 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 cracking a few windows in their home or using their screen doors. While this is still ordinary, it’s not feasible through the year in Port Saint Lucie. That’s where we can be grateful 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 propped open for ventilation. Today’s ventilation systems run by grasping just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the perks of traditional ventilation while getting rid of odors, chemicals and other pollutants 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. Picking a ventilation system is relatively easy as there are two kinds 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 environments in those areas. ERVs are nearly exclusive to southern regions that have increased humidity levels. Ventilation is just the beginning of things when discussing indoor air quality.
