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

Air Quality

When 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 weather in Fort Worth 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 usually think about opening a few windows throughout their home or using their screen doors. While this is still commonplace, it’s not practical year-round in Fort Worth. That’s where we can be thankful for the improvements 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 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 contaminants from your home’s indoor air. The process not only means you have 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.

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

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