Energy Recovery Ventilator: The Secret To Top-Quality Ventilation

Energy Recovery Ventilator: The Secret To Top-Quality VentilationHomes today are more energy efficient than ever before. However, tightly sealed, energy-efficient homes can develop problems with stale and stagnant air, poor air quality and too much or little humidity. Fortunately, there is a solution. Energy recovery ventilators (ERVs) are whole-house systems that supply your family with fresh conditioned air year-round, help control moisture and humidity in your home and help ventilate your home while maintaining energy efficiency.

How ERVs Work

ERVs are similar to heat-recovery ventilators (HRVs) in that both utilize heat exchangers to recycle energy. Out flowing, stale indoor air transfers its conditioned temperature (heated or cooled) to the inflowing fresh outdoor air through thin plates that separate the two airflows — saving a bundle on heating or cooling fresh outdoor air. During this energy exchange, ERVs also transfer a specified amount of moisture between the newly conditioned air to control humidity, depending on the settings. HRVs, though, do not have humidity control.

With the installation of an energy recovery ventilator in your home, your family will see the following benefits:

  • Heat-exchanger technology that reduces heating and cooling costs associated with conditioning fresh outdoor air, providing an energy-efficient means to receive a constant supply of fresh air,
  • A reduction of indoor air contaminants and pollutants by utilizing filtration in an ERV system,
  • Greater home comfort for your family year-round with temperature- and humidity-control technology, which is a huge benefit for Florida homeowners,
  • Humidity control which both reduces health issues and property damage caused by air that is either too dry or too humid,
  • And, easy installation and quiet operation.

If you like the idea of fresh indoor air, humidity control for Florida’s tropical climate and cleaner air with reduced allergens and contaminants, then an ERV may be the right solution.
