When you picture indoor air quality, you might dream of the fresh, clean spring air coming through an open window and a comfortable home—a feeling you would love to experience all year. Unfortunately, the weather in Monroe makes this difficult during the less pleasant months. But do you have to give up this fresh air just because the weather isn’t cooperating? The answer is “no.” With proper ventilation, your indoor air quality can be premium—no matter what it’s like outside.
Ventilation is more than just opening a few windows or doors in your home. While it's absolutely revitalizing on picturesque, mild days, it’s not something you can do just any day in Monroe. The positive is that technological advances have allowed us to replicate the benefits of refreshing outdoor air using your heating and cooling equipment.
By drawing in just the right amount of fresh, outdoor air, today’s ventilation systems provide you with the perks of conventional ventilation like eliminating odors, chemicals and other contaminants from your indoor air. This process purges stale air from your home and creates nicer feeling air. It’s a great way to make your home’s air as comfortable as possible without wasting energy.
There are two types of ventilation systems available: Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERVs) and Heat Recovery Ventilators (HRVs). Because of the climate, it's recommended that homes in most of the United States and all of Canada to use HRVs. ERVs are used most often in the muggy southern regions.
