Modern residences are built with efficiency as a goal. But that also means they’re firmly sealed and can have stale air without much movement.
With the right ventilation, your home can dodge mildew, allergen buildup, and related air quality challenges. Correct ventilation also allows you to remove severe odors, like kitchen smells or tobacco smoke.
While opening a window can help for a time, it doesn’t work in all weather. It can also be problematic if a household member deals with allergies.

3 Signals Your House Needs a Ventilation System
If you have issues getting strong odors out of your house, you likely have a ventilation concern.
The air in your house should feel fresh, but stuffy zones mean you might have poor ventilation.
Dust can develop more quickly in areas with insufficient air movement.
Categories of Ventilation Systems
There are two categories of ventilation systems—heat recovery ventilation (HRV) and energy recovery ventilation (ERV).
Either is a good fit for new homes or remodeled homes with energy enhancements, but are made with many climates in mind.
Places with a wide assortment of weather patterns, like the Midwest, can benefit from each system. Contact us for additional information about which option is the best fit for Saint Petersburg.
Heat Recovery Ventilation
HRV functions best in cooler climates. It pushes out air from your home, switching it out for fresh air from outside your home.
As an energy-efficient benefit, it maintains the heat from your indoor air. That way, you don’t have to pay to heat fresh (but colder) air from outside.
Energy Recovery Ventilation
ERV is best for warm, humid locations. It sucks the heat and moisture out of your house’s air and leaves it out of your home. This lets you hold ideal humidity levels in your home. The right amount of humidity can keep your place more comfortable and cause you to use your air conditioning less often—saving you more money on cooling costs.
