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

When it comes to whole home comfort and indoor air quality, there aren’t many things like breathing in fresh, clean air all the time. Of course, the climate in Dallas may not make that seem possible during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten part of indoor air quality that gets overlooked: ventilation.

When most people think about ventilation, they typically think about propping open a few windows around their home or using their screen doors. While this is still conventional, it’s not realistic throughout in Dallas. That’s where we can be thankful for the advancements in technology that have provided 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 drawing 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, it removes stale air from your home, helping make your home’s air as comfortable as it can be without wasting energy.

Picking a ventilation system is pretty easy as there are two types of systems used: Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERVs) and Heat Recovery Ventilators (HRVs). The majority of the United States, and all of Canada, are recommended to use HRVs as a result of the weather in those areas. ERVs are nearly exclusive to southern regions that have increased humidity levels.

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