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

When it comes to complete home comfort and indoor air quality, there aren’t many things like breathing in fresh, clean air throughout the year. Of course, the climate in Tucson may not make that seem probable during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten part of indoor air quality that gets ignored: ventilation.

When most people think about ventilation, they typically think about cracking a few windows in their home or using their screen doors. While this is still commonplace, it’s not realistic year-round in Tucson. That’s where we can thank the improvements in technology that have presented 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 run by drawing just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the perks of traditional ventilation while removing odors, chemicals and other pollutants 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.

Choosing a ventilation system is fairly 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 because of the weather in those areas. ERVs are nearly exclusive to southern regions that have increased humidity levels.

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