When it comes to whole home comfort and indoor air quality, there’s nothing like breathing in fresh, clean air throughout the year. Of course, the weather in Thousand Palms may not make that seem realistic during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten aspect of indoor air quality that gets unnoticed: ventilation.

When most people think about ventilation, they normally think about opening a few windows in their home or using their screen doors. While this is still conventional, it’s not realistic year-round in Thousand Palms. That’s where we can thank the developments in technology that have provided us with heating and cooling equipment that produces the same effects of having your windows or doors opened for ventilation.

Today’s ventilation systems work by pulling 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, but it also 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 relatively 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 as a result of the environments in those areas. ERVs are almost exclusive to southern regions that have higher than normal humidity levels.

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