What to Look When Shopping for a Ventilation System for Your Home
When considering a ventilation system for your home, you will want to keep several things in mind. One of the most important is the area you live in. For homes in hot, humid climates such as South Florida, certain types of ventilation systems work better than others.
Of course, it’s always wise to seek the help of trusted experts when installing or replacing a ventilation system but it always helps to be forearmed with some basics about a ventilation system for your home.
You will want a system that runs quietly and has fairly simple-to-understand controls for the entire family. Also, especially if you have allergy sufferers in the home, you will want a ventilation system for your home that evenly distributes clean or fresh air in your home. Make sure that the system has a filter on the air intake to prevent poor air quality in your home.
There are several different types of ventilation systems you can consider for the South Florida area.
- Supply ventilation systems are a good choice for hot climates with mild winters.
- Balanced ventilation, which has two fans, one pulling fresh air into the home and the other exhausting air from the home, works well in all climates.
- Energy Recovery Ventilators work well in South Florida, transferring heat and moisture to the out-flowing airstream during the long cooling season.
For residents of Martin, Palm Beach and Indian River counties, the exhaust ventilation system is probably not the best choice. The system does not remove moisture from the incoming air, which can be a problem in our humid climate.
When considering a ventilation system for your home, remember that based on federal EPA findings, indoor air is likely to be five times more polluted than outdoor air.
