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

When it comes to whole home comfort and indoor air quality, there’s nothing like breathing in fresh, clean air throughout the year. Of course, the environment in Pacheco may not make that seem probable during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten part of indoor air quality that gets unnoticed: ventilation.

When most people think about ventilation, they normally think about propping open a few windows in their home or using their screen doors. While this is still conventional, it’s not practical throughout in Pacheco. That’s where we can be grateful for the advancements in technology that have left us with heating and cooling equipment that creates the same effects of having your windows or doors opened for ventilation.

Today’s ventilation systems operate 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 impurities from your home’s indoor air. The process not only ensures 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). Most 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.
