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

When you contemplate indoor air quality, you might imagine the fresh, clean spring air coming through an open window and a comfortable home—a feeling you would crave all year. Unfortunately, the weather in Jefferson City makes this difficult during the more severe months. But do you have to give up this fresh air just because the weather isn’t cooperating? The answer is “no.” With good ventilation, your indoor air quality can be exceptional—no matter what it’s like outside.

Ventilation requires more than just opening a few windows or doors in your home. While it's positively refreshing on picturesque, mild days, it’s not something you can do throughout the year in Jefferson City. The good news is that technological advances have allowed us to replicate the benefits of clean, fresh air flowing through your windows and doors 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 perks of conventional ventilation like eliminating odors, chemicals and other contaminants from your indoor air. This process removes stale air from your home and produces nicer feeling air. It’s a good 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 hotter southern regions.
