Ventilation: A Breath of Fresh Air for Your Ronkonkoma Home and Indoor Air Quality08/12/2015When it comes to total home comfort and indoor air quality, there are few things like breathing in fresh, clean air year-round. Of course, the climate in Ronkonkoma 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 cracking a few windows in their home or using their screen doors. While this is still commonplace, it’s not realistic through the year in Ronkonkoma. That’s where we can thank the developments in technology that have presented 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 advantages of traditional ventilation while removing odors, chemicals and other impurities from your home’s indoor air. The process not only ensures 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 relatively easy as there are two types 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 climates in those areas. ERVs are almost exclusive to southern regions that have increased humidity levels. Ventilation is just the beginning of things when discussing indoor air quality.
