Ventilation: A Breath of Fresh Air for Your Kennesaw and surrounding areas Home and Indoor Air Quality

Air Quality

When it comes to total home comfort and indoor air quality, there aren’t many things like breathing in fresh, clean air throughout the year. Of course, the weather in Kennesaw and surrounding areas may not make that seem possible during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten piece of indoor air quality that gets ignored: ventilation.

When most people think about ventilation, they typically think about cracking a few windows in their home or using their screen doors. While this is still commonplace, it’s not realistic year-round in Kennesaw and surrounding areas. That’s where we can be grateful for the advancements in technology that have left us with heating and cooling equipment that produces the same effects of having your windows or doors cracked open for ventilation.

Today’s ventilation systems run by drawing 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 eliminates 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 kinds 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 as a result of the climates in those areas. ERVs are nearly exclusive to southern regions that have increased humidity levels.

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