Bring the advantages of fresh air indoors
Today’s homes and commercial buildings are well-insulated and designed to be airtight in order to reduce energy use and costs associated with heating and cooling. While these structures are very efficient, the quality of the indoor environment is diminished due to a lack of ventilation. Without proper ventilation, you’ll be exposed to stale air that has a higher concentration of contaminants that cause an abundance of health issues, such as:
- Dry skin
- Itchy eyes
- Breathing difficulties
Installing a heat recovery ventilation (HRV) or energy recovery ventilation (ERV) system can drastically improve your indoor air quality and energy efficiency. Fresh air is brought into your building and dilutes the contaminants that contribute to poor air quality. Consistent humidity levels are easily maintained throughout the home or commercial building. Using these systems will allow you to conserve energy and cut back on your use of fossil fuels, lowering your heating and cooling costs.
