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

When it comes to total home comfort and indoor air quality, there aren’t many things like breathing in fresh, clean air year-round. Of course, the environment in Mount Pleasant may not make that seem realistic during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten aspect of indoor air quality that gets ignored: ventilation.

When most people think about ventilation, they normally think about cracking a few windows around their home or using their screen doors. While this is still conventional, it’s not realistic year-round in Mount Pleasant. That’s where we can be thankful for the improvements in technology that have left 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 work by grasping just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the advantages of traditional ventilation while eliminating odors, chemicals and other contaminants from your home’s indoor air. The process not only means 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.

Selecting a ventilation system is pretty easy as there are two types 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 greater humidity levels.

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