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

When it comes to total home comfort and indoor air quality, there’s nothing like breathing in fresh, clean air all the time. Of course, the environment in Waterloo may not make that seem possible during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten piece 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 ordinary, it’s not practical year-round in Waterloo. That’s where we can be grateful for the developments in technology that have provided us with heating and cooling equipment that produces the same effects of having your windows or doors opened 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 getting rid of odors, chemicals and other pollutants from your home’s indoor air. The process not only means you have nicer feeling air, it removes 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 relatively easy as there are two sorts of systems used: Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERVs) and Heat Recovery Ventilators (HRVs). Nearly all of the United States, and all of Canada, are recommended to use HRVs because of the weather in those areas. ERVs are nearly exclusive to southern regions that have greater humidity levels.

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