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

August 12, 2015

When it comes to total home comfort and indoor air quality, there are few things like breathing in fresh, clean air throughout the year. Of course, the weather in Anaheim may not make that seem possible 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 usually think about opening a few windows in their home or using their screen doors. While this is still ordinary, it’s not realistic year-round in Anaheim. That’s where we can be thankful for the advancements in technology that have left us with heating and cooling equipment that produces 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 advantages of traditional ventilation while removing 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 fairly easy as there are two kinds 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 due to 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 thinking about indoor air quality.
