Thoren Rogers, Building Performance Division Manager with Barron Heating, talked about how to achieve clean and healthy air quality at home with a properly vented home and the right HVAC system. This will make more a more comfortable home environment and will save significant money on heating and electricity bill.  By taking a holistic approach, a “home performance contractor” can come to your home and measure quality of indoor air and see where there are problems (similar to an energy audit).  Leaky doors and windows usually not the problem; it’s usually leaks in the air duct system, and unbalanced air pressure that will suck in air from the wrong places, like the crawl space, wall spaces and the attic. Air from those places will bring in dust, dirt, allergens and even bits of fiberglass insulation.  The trick is to bring in (limited) fresh air from outside, vent out bad air, while maintaining balanced pressure.  A home performance assessment costs between $300-$500.

There are several common types of home ventilation systems. The latest innovation is called “energy recovery ventilation” (ERV): With such a system, the energy (heat) from normally exhausted home air is used to treat (precondition) the incoming ventilation air. During the warmer seasons, the system pre-cools and dehumidifies the incoming air. During the colder months it humidifies and pre-heats the incoming air.
