Ventilation: A Breath of Fresh Air for Your Las Vegas Home and Indoor Air Quality

When it comes to total home comfort and indoor air quality, there’s nothing like breathing in fresh, clean air all the time. Of course, the environment in Las Vegas may not make that seem possible during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten aspect of indoor air quality that gets ignored: ventilation.

When most people think about ventilation, they normally think about propping open a few windows around their home or using their screen doors. While this is still conventional, it’s not practical through the year in Las Vegas. That’s where we can be grateful for the developments in technology that have provided us with heating and cooling equipment that produces the same effects of having your windows or doors cracked open for ventilation.

Today’s ventilation systems work by drawing just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the perks of traditional ventilation while eliminating odors, chemicals and other pollutants from your home’s indoor air. The process not only provides you with nicer feeling air, it eliminates stale air from your home, helping make your home’s air as comfortable as it can be without wasting energy.

Picking a ventilation system is relatively easy as there are two types of systems used: Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERVs) and Heat Recovery Ventilators (HRVs). Most of the United States, and all of Canada, are recommended to use HRVs as a result of the environments in those areas. ERVs are nearly exclusive to southern regions that have greater humidity levels.

Ventilation is just the beginning of things when talking about indoor air quality.
