When you contemplate indoor air quality, you might envision the fresh, clean spring air drifting through an open window and a comfortable home—a feeling you would crave all year. Unfortunately, the weather in Bend makes this difficult during the less pleasant months. Should you just give up this fresh air just because the weather isn’t playing fair? The answer is “no.” With proper ventilation, your indoor air quality can be exceptional—regardless of what it’s like outside.
Ventilation is more than just opening a few windows or doors in your home. While it's positively uplifting on delightful, mild days, it’s not something you can do throughout the year in Bend. The positive is that technological advances have allowed us to create the benefits of clean, fresh air flowing through your windows and doors 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 perks of traditional ventilation like eliminating odors, chemicals and other contaminants from your indoor air. This process purges stale air from your home and generates 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 heavily in the hotter southern regions.
