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

When it comes to complete home comfort and indoor air quality, there are few things like breathing in fresh, clean air year-round. Of course, the environment in Kearney may not make that seem realistic 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 usually think about propping open a few windows throughout their home or using their screen doors. While this is still commonplace, it’s not practical throughout in Kearney. That’s where we can be thankful for the advancements in technology that have left us with heating and cooling equipment that offers the same effects of having your windows or doors cracked open for ventilation.

Today’s ventilation systems work by grasping just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the perks of traditional ventilation while removing odors, chemicals and other contaminants from your home’s indoor air. The process not only means you have nicer feeling air, it eliminates 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 kinds 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 environments 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.
