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 climate in Croydon may not make that seem probable 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 cracking a few windows throughout their home or using their screen doors. While this is still conventional, it’s not realistic year-round in Croydon. That’s where we can be grateful for the advancements in technology that have provided us with heating and cooling equipment that produces the same effects of having your windows or doors cracked open for ventilation.

Today’s ventilation systems work by pulling 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 impurities from your home’s indoor air. The process not only ensures you have nicer feeling air, but it also gets rid of stale air from your home, helping make your home’s air as comfortable as it can be without wasting energy.

Selecting a ventilation system is pretty 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 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.
