When you picture indoor air quality, you might imagine the fresh, clean spring air drifting through an open window and a comfortable home—a feeling you may wish for all year. Unfortunately, the weather in Grand Prairie makes this difficult during the harsher months. Should you just give up this fresh air just because the weather isn’t playing fair? The answer is “no.” With proper ventilation, your indoor air quality can be at its finest—no matter what it’s like outside.
Ventilation is more than just opening a few windows or doors in your home. While it's absolutely revitalizing on beautiful, mild days, it’s not something you can do year-round in Grand Prairie. The good news is that technological advances have allowed us to create the benefits of fresh spring air using your heating and cooling equipment.

There are two types of ventilation systems available: Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERVs) and Heat Recovery Ventilators (HRVs). Because of the climate, it's recommended that homes in most of the United States and all of Canada to use HRVs. ERVs are used most heavily in the humid southern regions.
