Lennox® Ventilation

Present-day houses are fabricated with efficiency top of mind. But that also means they’re firmly sealed and can feel stuffy.

With proper ventilation, your house can fend off mildew, allergen increases and similar air quality problems. Efficient ventilation also allows you to air out intense odors, like food smells or tobacco smoke.

While cracking a window can air things out at times, it can’t be used in all weather. It can also be difficult if an individual in your home deals with allergies.

Lennox® home ventilation systems in Marshalltown, Iowa, have an energy-efficient option: swapping stuffy inside air with renewed outdoor air. They’re designed to operate with any heating and cooling system. Plus, they don’t produce any ozone, a toxic gas that can inflame your lungs.

Kapaun & Brown Inc. can help you choose the best model for your home and the local environment. Give our heating and cooling professionals a ring at 641-812-2028 to start taking in fresher air now.

Categories of Ventilation Systems

There are two categories of ventilation systems—heat recovery ventilation (HRV) and energy recovery ventilation (ERV).

Either is perfect for new homes or renovated homes with energy upgrades, but are designed with multiple climates in mind.

Places with a wide assortment of weather patterns, including the Midwest, can benefit from each system. Contact us for additional information about which system is the best fit for Marshalltown.

Heat Recovery Ventilation

HRV functions best in chillier climates. It pushes out air from your space, swapping out fresh air from outside.

As an energy-efficient benefit, it holds on to the heat from your indoor air. That way, you shouldn’t have to pay to heat fresh (but chillier) air from outside.

Energy Recovery Ventilation

ERV is a good fit for warm, humid areas. It extracts the heat and moisture out of your home’s air and directs it outside. This allows you to maintain the best humidity levels in your rooms. Well-adjusted humidity can keep your family more comfortable and allow you to use your air conditioning less often—saving you more money on cooling bills.
