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

When it comes to complete home comfort and indoor air quality, there’s nothing like breathing in fresh, clean air all the time. Of course, the weather in Pocatello may not make that seem realistic during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten piece of indoor air quality that gets overlooked: ventilation.

When most people think about ventilation, they usually think about opening a few windows throughout their home or using their screen doors. While this is still conventional, it’s not realistic through the year in Pocatello. That’s where we can thank the improvements in technology that have left us with heating and cooling equipment that creates the same effects of having your windows or doors cracked open for ventilation.

Today’s ventilation systems run by drawing just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the perks of traditional ventilation while getting rid of odors, chemicals and other pollutants from your home’s indoor air. The process not only means you have nicer feeling air, it gets rid of 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 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 climates 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.
