Ventilation: A Breath of Fresh Air for Your Upland 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 weather in Upland may not make that seem probable 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 typically think about opening a few windows throughout their home or using their screen doors. While this is still ordinary, it’s not realistic through the year in Upland. That’s where we can be grateful for the improvements in technology that have left 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 pulling just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the perks of traditional ventilation while eliminating odors, chemicals and other contaminants 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. Choosing a ventilation system is pretty easy as there are two types 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 due to the environments in those areas. ERVs are almost exclusive to southern regions that have higher than normal humidity levels. Ventilation is just the beginning of things when discussing indoor air quality.
