Our ventilation systems bring fresh air into your home without sacrificing the heat or cooling you have already paid for.
Have you noticed stuffy air in your home in winter? Do you have a perfectly good air conditioner but hate using it because it makes your indoor air smell stale? If so your home may lack adequate ventilation.
Before the energy crisis of the 1997s, homes had natural ventilation thanks to lack of insulation and gaps around doors and windows. These days we have much better insulation so we do not have to lose heat , but that creates a new problem: getting fresh air into our homes.
Its not just about stuffy winter air , once inside, pollutants accumulate. In fact, according to the EPA indoor air is often 2,5 times more polluted and can be up to 100 times more polluted than outdoor air. A ventilator can be a very effective part of enjoying your home and keeping your family healthy.
Here are some basic explanations of what they do.
HRVs transfer heat from outgoing air to incoming air. The two different airflow streams never meet, only the heat is kept. Efficiency levels can vary from 55% up to 93% in the very best products.
ERVs transfer heat AND also transfer humidity. This makes them more efficient, and they also help keep your indoor humidity levels more manageable. In summer, ERVs remove humidity from incoming air (making less work for your AC), but in winter it reverses and they remove humidity from outgoing air.
Here are some simple rules of thumb for choosing between an HRV and ERV. Please keep in mind that sometimes your specific home will not fall into one of these exact categories, so for best results consult a professional.
An HRV or an ERV may not completely eliminate the need for a humidifier or dehumidifier, it will help them work more efficiently.
