Some air is fit to breathe, but not all of it! Long story short: You want to bring healthy air in and push unhealthy air out. That’s the essence of ventilation
From indoor air quality upgrades to bath and kitchen fans, PV Heating & Air delivers effective ventilation services that ensure you’re always breathing healthy air.
Here’s how we help you improve home ventilation
To that end, we help you select and install:
- Fresh air systems and air cleaning systems for advanced air filtration and purification
- Whole house dehumidifiers with fresh air ventilation controls
- Energy recovery ventilators (ERVs) for balanced ventilation in any home, including high-performance construction
- Custom ventilation systems and designs to maintain a proper pressure balance and clean, healthy air throughout your home
That’s why PV Heating & Air designs and/or installs:
- Exhaust air and make-up air systems for gas appliances that virtually eliminate the possibility of carbon monoxide leaks
- Safe, properly installed ventilation ducts for clothes dryers
- Replacement chimney liners that comply with modern ventilation codes
- Bathroom fans and kitchen hoods that are properly sized for your space
When it comes to domestic ventilation services, what should you expect?
The “V” in HVAC stands for “ventilation,” but it’s something very few HVAC companies know how to address with good results.
At PV Heating & Air, we believe indoor air quality stands side by side with working heating and air conditioning systems. And when it comes to ventilation, you should set your expectations high!
- Analyze your home to confirm whether you’re getting too much or too little fresh air
- Perform a blower door test and thermal imaging analysis to help you prioritize ventilation and energy efficiency upgrades.
- Calculate the right amount of ventilation for your home
- Determine whether mechanical systems are necessary for proper ventilation
- Reduce unwanted air infiltration by sealing air leaks and duct leaks
- Design and install off-the-shelf or custom ventilation systems that provide the right balance of fresh, filtered air
What are the two main types of home ventilation?
Uncontrolled ventilation is what you probably have today. Air infiltrates your home via gaps and cracks around floor and attic penetrations, not to mention doors and windows.
With this kind of ventilation, there’s no way to control whether you’re getting too much or too little air. And never mind humidity and airborne pollutants! You’re at the mercy of mother nature and your home’s construction quality.
It’s the “bad” kind of ventilation that people often call us to tame.
Controlled ventilation usually involves a mechanical system. After determining where unconditioned, unfiltered air infiltrates your home, home performance or HVAC contractor seals the offending air leaks and installs a ventilation device that’s tuned to your home’s needs.
The type of device depends on your home and your ventilation needs. In the Atlanta area, the most common options are an energy recovery ventilator (ERV) or ventilating dehumidifier with fresh air. Occasionally, a custom system with ventilation fans and dampers is required.
With a controlled ventilation system, you can control the amount of ventilation you receive, keep humidity levels at a comfortable level, and filter all incoming air!
Atlanta ventilation services designed just for you. That’s how PV Heating & Air rolls.
Different homes have vastly different ventilation needs. Figuring out how much ventilation your home needs – and what kind – requires time, expertise, and a lot of measurements.
Blower door tests, room-by-room pressure readings, air quality inspections… We go through these steps because they make a difference.
How much air? How should we bring it in? Which rooms need it most? What’s the CFM on that fan? At PV Heating & Air, we always ask these questions.
Why? Because the answers show us how to keep your air clean and comfortable
