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

When it comes to complete home comfort and indoor air quality, there are few things like breathing in fresh, clean air all the time. Of course, the environment in Grand Prairie may not make that seem probable during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten piece of indoor air quality that gets overlooked: ventilation.

When most people think about ventilation, they usually think about opening a few windows throughout their home or using their screen doors. While this is still ordinary, it’s not realistic through the year in Grand Prairie. That’s where we can be grateful for the improvements in technology that have left us with heating and cooling equipment that produces the same effects of having your windows or doors propped open for ventilation.

Today’s ventilation systems work by pulling just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the benefits of traditional ventilation while getting rid of odors, chemicals and other impurities 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.

Choosing a ventilation system is pretty 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 because of the climates in those areas. ERVs are almost exclusive to southern regions that have greater humidity levels.

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