During the cold winter months in Deerfield, Illinois, you keep your home’s doors and windows tightly shut. As a result, the air in your home can get stale and feel stuffy. It’s important to expel that old air and replace it with fresh air from the outside to freshen your home. Let’s look at different ventilation systems and how adding them can make your home’s air cleaner this winter.

Heat Recovery Ventilators

Designed specifically for cold climates, heat recovery ventilators keep fresh air circulated throughout your home while minimizing heat loss. Heat recovery ventilators pull fresh outdoor air inside and expel stale indoor air. These systems are highly efficient as they use the outgoing air’s heat energy for the energy exchange. With cross-flow configurations, heat recovery ventilators restrict the mixing of stale and fresh air.

Air Purification Systems

Air cleaners and purifiers help to kill bacteria, viruses, and pollutants that can be harmful to your family’s health. Our air purification systems can be placed inline with your existing ductwork and HVAC system. Most of the models can capture up to 95 percent of contaminated particulates, killing or inactivating nearly all of the germs. An air purifier is essential if someone in your home suffers from asthma or allergies.

Exhaust and Ceiling Fans

In areas of your home that have excess moisture — bathrooms and kitchens in particular — be sure to have good exhaust fans to exhaust that warm moist air outside. Adding ceiling fans to your home can greatly improve airflow. As a result, it’ll make your house feel less stuffy.

Even with exhaust fans and ceiling fans, adding heat recovery ventilators and air purifiers to your home will keep your it healthier. You’ll notice a vast improvement in the indoor air quality and health of your family this winter by adding ventilation systems.
