Ventilation: A Breath of Fresh Air for Your Bossier City Home and Indoor Air Quality08/12/2015When it comes to total home comfort and indoor air quality, there aren’t many things like breathing in fresh, clean air year-round. Of course, the environment in Bossier City may not make that seem realistic during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten aspect of indoor air quality that gets unnoticed: ventilation. When most people think about ventilation, they typically think about propping open a few windows throughout their home or using their screen doors. While this is still ordinary, it’s not feasible through the year in Bossier City. That’s where we can thank the improvements in technology that have presented us with heating and cooling equipment that creates the same effects of having your windows or doors opened for ventilation. Today’s ventilation systems operate by grasping just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the advantages 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 gets rid of 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 kinds 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 environments 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.
