When you contemplate indoor air quality, you might dream of the fresh, clean spring air drifting through an open window and a comfortable home—a feeling you would love to experience all year. Unfortunately, the weather in Excelsior Springs makes this difficult during the more severe months. Is it necessary to give up this fresh air just because the weather isn’t cooperating? The answer is “no.” With appropriate ventilation, your indoor air quality can be at its finest—regardless of what it’s like outside.
Ventilation requires 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 year-round in Excelsior Springs. The good news is that technological advances have allowed us to create the benefits of fresh spring air using your heating and cooling equipment.
By drawing in just the right amount of fresh, outdoor air, today’s ventilation systems provide you with the benefits of traditional ventilation like eliminating odors, chemicals and other contaminants from your indoor air. This process purges stale air from your home and creates nicer feeling air. It’s a fantastic 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 frequently in the humid southern regions.
