When it comes to whole home comfort and indoor air quality, there are few things like breathing in fresh, clean air year-round. Of course, the environment in Fort Lauderdale 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 normally think about propping open a few windows throughout their home or using their screen doors. While this is still conventional, it’s not feasible year-round in Fort Lauderdale. 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 propped open for ventilation.

Today’s ventilation systems operate by pulling 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 means you have nicer feeling air, but it also 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 sorts of systems used: Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERVs) and Heat Recovery Ventilators (HRVs). Nearly all of the United States, and all of Canada, are recommended to use HRVs due to 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.
