When it comes to complete home comfort and indoor air quality, there aren’t many things like breathing in fresh, clean air year-round. Of course, the weather in Santa Clarita may not make that seem possible during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten piece of indoor air quality that gets ignored: ventilation.

When most people think about ventilation, they usually think about propping open a few windows throughout their home or using their screen doors. While this is still conventional, it’s not feasible year-round in Santa Clarita. That’s where we can thank the developments in technology that have presented us with heating and cooling equipment that produces the same effects of having your windows or doors opened for ventilation.

Today’s ventilation systems run by grasping just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the perks of traditional ventilation while eliminating odors, chemicals and other impurities from your home’s indoor air. The process not only provides you with nicer feeling air, but it also eliminates 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 pretty easy as there are two sorts 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 weather in those areas. ERVs are mostly exclusive to southern regions that have increased humidity levels.
