Contemporary residences are produced with efficiency top of mind. But that also means they’re thoroughly sealed and can have stuffy air.

With proper ventilation, your space can avoid mildew, allergen buildup and related air quality challenges. Correct ventilation also helps remove strong odors, like cooking smells or tobacco smoke.

While relying a window can help for a time, it isn’t useful year-round. It can also be challenging if anyone in your family suffers from allergies.

Three Red Flags that Show Your Home Needs a Ventilation System

There are a a couple signs you need house ventilation, starting with:

Odors Won’t Go Away

You may have a house ventilation problem if you are having trouble getting rid of intense odors, including cooking smells or cigarette smoke.

Stale Air

Your home’s air should be fresh, not stale or stuffy.

Excessive Dirt

While some dust is inevitable, rooms with poor airflow can have larger quantities of dust.

Classes of Ventilation Systems

There are two kinds of ventilation systems—heat recovery ventilation (HRV) and energy recovery ventilation (ERV).

Each one is great for new homes or recently updated homes with energy upgrades, but are designed with different climates in mind.

Areas with a wide variety of weather patterns, including the Midwest, can find value from both systems. Contact us for extra information about which system is best for Milledgeville and Middle Georgia.

Heat Recovery Ventilation

HRV functions best in cold climates. It exhausts air from your home, replacing it with fresh air from outside your home.

As an energy-efficient option, it maintains the heat from your indoor air. That way, you won’t have to pay to treat fresh (but colder) air from the outdoors.

Energy Recovery Ventilation

ERV is a good fit for warm, humid climates. It extracts the heat and moisture out of your home’s air and guides it outdoors. This lets you maintain proper humidity levels in your rooms. Balanced humidity can keep your place more comfortable and cause you to use your air conditioning less often—saving you more money on cooling bills.

Which Ventilation System is Best for Your Home?

There are two varieties of ventilation equipment—heat recovery ventilation (HRV) and energy recovery ventilation (ERV).

While they’re each suited for new or remodeled energy-efficient homes, the type you need is dependent on your local climate. Homes in certain areas, such as the Midwest, can benefit from both systems.
