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

August 12, 2015

When it comes to complete home comfort and indoor air quality, there’s nothing like breathing in fresh, clean air all the time. Of course, the environment in Plover 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 usually think about propping open a few windows throughout their home or using their screen doors. While this is still commonplace, it’s not realistic throughout in Plover. That’s where we can thank 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 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 contaminants from your home’s indoor air. The process not only means you have 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.

Choosing a ventilation system is relatively easy as there are two sorts 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 as a result of the climates in those areas. ERVs are nearly exclusive to southern regions that have greater humidity levels.

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