Energy Recovery Ventilator
Energy Recovery Ventilator
Energy recovery ventilation (ERV) is a process that removes your contaminated indoor air and replaces it with fresh air, while keeping your temperature level the same. It is a highly beneficial process that keeps the air in your home healthier.
Indoor Air Quality and Energy Savings With ERVs
Because energy recovery ventilators (ERVs) are designed to provide fresh air and reduce the amount of energy used to cool or heat a home, they can make a great addition to Columbus homeowners’ HVAC systems. With the extreme temperatures residents experience during the summer and winter, these units work well to help fight the temperature swings. Unlike a heat recovery ventilator (HRV), ERVs work to control indoor humidity as well as temperature. This makes an ERV the better choice over an HRV for HVAC systems.
For example, during the hot and humid summer months an ERV can bring fresh air into your space and expel the stale air. It can do this without compromising the energy efficiency of your air conditioning system, as well. Because it removes excessive moisture from the air, an ERV also helps combat mold and mildew growth while making the air more comfortable.
In the winter, an ERV can recover heat from the stale air being exhausted, transferring it to the fresh air coming into the room. This reduces the amount of energy you’ll need to heat the air, keeping your utility bills low and improving your air quality.
These qualities and more make these units a good investment if you live in Columbus. You’ll enjoy a more comfortable living space while cutting down on energy costs and maintaining healthier air. Our experts can help you find the equipment that best suits your needs, so call us today.
