Modern homes (indeed, most modern buildings) have a dilemma when it comes to energy efficiency and indoor air quality: it is difficult to achieve both at the same time. The heavy insulation on a home is important to prevent heat loss and gain, and in Los Angeles, CA it is particularly important during the numerous hot days of the year to keep heat from moving inside a home. Proper insulation is one of the keys to lessening the amount of work that an air conditioning system must do. However, this seal against the outside results in stale and stuffy air developing inside; there simply isn’t enough fresh air circulation. Opening up windows and doors helps—but that makes the HVAC system work even harder.
There is a way to solve this problem, however: call AZ Air Conditioning and Heating and have our indoor air quality professionals install an energy recovery ventilator (ERV) in your home. We’ll explain what these are and how they can help your household. Contact us for further details.
