When you contemplate indoor air quality, you might envision the fresh, clean spring air gliding through an open window and a comfortable home—a feeling you would love to experience all year. Unfortunately, the weather in Moline makes this difficult during the harsher months. But do you have to give up this fresh air just because the weather isn’t playing fair? The answer is “no.” With appropriate ventilation, your indoor air quality can be at its finest—no matter what it’s like outside.
Ventilation involves more than just opening a few windows or doors in your home. While it's absolutely revitalizing on beautiful, mild days, it’s not something you can do throughout the year in Moline. The positive is that technological advances have allowed us to replicate the benefits of fresh spring air using your heating and cooling equipment.
By simply pulling in just the right amount of fresh, outdoor air, today’s ventilation systems provide you with the benefits of standard ventilation like eliminating odors, chemicals and other contaminants from your indoor air. This process removes stale air from your home and creates nicer feeling air. It’s a great way to make your home’s air as comfortable as possible without wasting energy.
There are two types of ventilation systems available: Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERVs) and Heat Recovery Ventilators (HRVs). Because of the climate, it's recommended that homes in most of the United States and all of Canada to use HRVs. ERVs are used most heavily in the humid southern regions.
