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 Palm Coast may not make that seem realistic 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 normally think about propping open a few windows around their home or using their screen doors. While this is still commonplace, it’s not realistic year-round in Palm Coast. That’s where we can thank the advancements in technology that have presented us with heating and cooling equipment that creates the same effects of having your windows or doors opened for ventilation.

Today’s ventilation systems work by grasping 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, but it also 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 fairly 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 as a result of the weather in those areas. ERVs are mostly exclusive to southern regions that have higher than normal humidity levels.

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