Ventilation: A Breath of Fresh Air for Your Bishop Home and Indoor Air Quality08/12/2015When it comes to complete home comfort and indoor air quality, there are few things like breathing in fresh, clean air throughout the year. Of course, the environment in Bishop may not make that seem possible during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten part of indoor air quality that gets ignored: ventilation. When most people think about ventilation, they typically think about opening a few windows in their home or using their screen doors. While this is still commonplace, it’s not feasible through the year in Bishop. That’s where we can be thankful for the developments in technology that have provided us with heating and cooling equipment that offers the same effects of having your windows or doors propped open 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 getting rid of odors, chemicals and other contaminants from your home’s indoor air. The process not only provides you with nicer feeling air, it gets rid of 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 climates in those areas. ERVs are mostly exclusive to southern regions that have higher than normal humidity levels. Ventilation is just the beginning of things when discussing indoor air quality.
