Ventilation: A Breath of Fresh Air for Your Suffolk/Nassau County Home and Indoor Air Quality

When it comes to whole home comfort and indoor air quality, there’s nothing like breathing in fresh, clean air year-round. Of course, the environment in Suffolk/Nassau County may not make that seem possible during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten piece of indoor air quality that gets unnoticed: ventilation.

When most people think about ventilation, they typically think about opening a few windows throughout their home or using their screen doors. While this is still ordinary, it’s not feasible year-round in Suffolk/Nassau County. That’s where we can be grateful for the advancements in technology that have provided 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 drawing 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 provides you with 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 as a result of 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 talking about indoor air quality.
