Newer homes have better insulation than older dwellings. As a result, they’re more energy-efficient. Unfortunately, pollutants like dust can stay indoors along with conditioned air. Indoor air often has more contaminants than outdoor air, and people spend most of their time inside. A whole-home ventilation system can help you save energy, keep your family feeling comfortable and make your Severna Park, Maryland, home healthier.
Many whole-home ventilation systems are called energy recovery ventilators (ERVs). They push stale air out of your home and bring fresh air inside. They precondition the incoming air with the thermal energy removed from the outgoing air. That way, you can get rid of contaminants while conserving power. Your heater and air conditioner won’t need to work as hard as they would if you opened a door or a window for ventilation. Whole-home ventilation can lower your utility bills and extend your HVAC system’s life by reducing wear.
Whole-home ventilation gets rid of bad smells and excess humidity. As a result, it makes your home feel more welcoming for family members and guests. It also reduces pests and biological growth. Less dust in your home also means that you won’t have to vacuum as often.
A Healthier Home
ERVs filter incoming air and make sure that it never mixes with stale air. Removing pollutants can prevent asthma and allergy symptoms and many other health issues. It can keep colds and the flu from spreading and remove volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These substances evaporate at room temperature, and they’re in many household products. They can cause headaches, dizziness, fatigue and other problems.
