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

Air Quality

When it comes to total 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 Marietta may not make that seem realistic during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten piece of indoor air quality that gets ignored: ventilation.

When most people think about ventilation, they normally think about propping open a few windows throughout their home or using their screen doors. While this is still commonplace, it’s not practical through the year in Marietta. That’s where we can be thankful for the developments in technology that have left us with heating and cooling equipment that offers the same effects of having your windows or doors opened for ventilation.

Today’s ventilation systems operate by pulling just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the advantages of traditional ventilation while removing odors, chemicals and other contaminants from your home’s indoor air. The process not only provides you with 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 relatively easy as there are two sorts of systems used: Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERVs) and Heat Recovery Ventilators (HRVs). Most of the United States, and all of Canada, are recommended to use HRVs as a result of the climates in those areas. ERVs are mostly exclusive to southern regions that have higher than normal humidity levels.

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