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

When it comes to whole home comfort and indoor air quality, there aren’t many things like breathing in fresh, clean air all the time. Of course, the climate in Bloomfield 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 usually think about propping open a few windows in their home or using their screen doors. While this is still ordinary, it’s not realistic year-round in Bloomfield. That’s where we can thank the improvements 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 pulling just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the perks of traditional ventilation while getting rid of odors, chemicals and other pollutants from your home’s indoor air. The process not only ensures 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). Most of the United States, and all of Canada, are recommended to use HRVs due to 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 discussing indoor air quality.
