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

When it comes to total 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 typically think about propping open a few windows throughout their home or using their screen doors. While this is still ordinary, it’s not practical year-round in Kearney. That’s where we can thank the developments in technology that have provided 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 operate by grasping just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the benefits of traditional ventilation while removing odors, chemicals and other pollutants 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 fairly 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 discussing indoor air quality.
