When it comes to complete home comfort and indoor air quality, there aren’t many things like breathing in fresh, clean air year-round. Of course, the environment in Yukon may not make that seem probable during hot and cold months, but there is an often forgotten aspect of indoor air quality that gets unnoticed: ventilation.

When most people think about ventilation, they typically think about propping open a few windows in their home or using their screen doors. While this is still commonplace, it’s not feasible year-round in Yukon. That’s where we can be thankful for the improvements in technology that have left us with heating and cooling equipment that creates the same effects of having your windows or doors opened for ventilation.

Today’s ventilation systems operate by grasping just the right amount of fresh air from outside, providing you with the benefits of traditional ventilation while removing odors, chemicals and other pollutants from your home’s indoor air. The process not only means you have nicer feeling air, but it also removes stale air from your home, helping make your home’s air as comfortable as it can be without wasting energy.

Selecting a ventilation system is pretty easy as there are two kinds of systems used: Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERVs) and Heat Recovery Ventilators (HRVs). The majority of the United States, and all of Canada, are recommended to use HRVs because of the environments in those areas. ERVs are nearly exclusive to southern regions that have increased humidity levels.

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