Indoor air quality is a crucial factor in maintaining a healthy living environment. When it comes to ventilation for single or multifamily residences, there are three common types: supply, balanced, and exhaust. However, Field Controls advocates for the superior benefits of Central Fan Integrated Ventilation (CFIV).

Exhaust ventilation, although cost-effective, can lead to poor indoor air quality as it creates negative pressure, drawing in contaminated air from areas like the garage or basement. Balanced ventilation, such as HRV or ERV, balances fresh air supply and stale air exhaust, but can be more expensive to install.

On the other hand, CFIV utilizes a home’s forced air heating and cooling system to circulate and dilute indoor air. By piggybacking on the central system’s operation, CFIV optimizes circulation and minimizes energy penalties. Field Controls emphasizes that CFIV offers greater value and comfort compared to balanced or exhaust ventilation.

Choose Field Controls for fresh air ventilation and experience better air for better living.
