When it comes to complete home comfort and indoor air quality, there aren’t many things like breathing in fresh, clean air all the time. Of course, the environment in Holbrook may not make that seem possible 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 normally think about cracking a few windows around their home or using their screen doors. While this is still commonplace, it’s not feasible year-round in Holbrook. That’s where we can thank the improvements in technology that have left us with heating and cooling equipment that offers the same effects of having your windows or doors opened for ventilation.

Today’s ventilation systems work by drawing just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the benefits of traditional ventilation while eliminating odors, chemicals and other impurities from your home’s indoor air. The process not only means you have nicer feeling air, but it also eliminates 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 relatively easy as there are two sorts 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 because of the environments in those areas. ERVs are nearly exclusive to southern regions that have higher than normal humidity levels.

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