Having your home be as energy-efficient as possible has many benefits, including lowering your energy bill. However, this can negatively impact the ventilation in your house. Energy-efficient homes are sealed to prevent heated or cooled air from seeping out, but it also prevents any contaminants from exiting your home.
Simply opening the windows won’t help. You need heat and energy recovery ventilators. These systems let you ventilate your house without affecting the heating or cooling or your home.
What Are HRV and ERV Systems?
Heat recovery ventilators and energy recovery ventilators are whole-house ventilation devices. These systems contain heat exchangers that allow them to transfer heat between air streams. This means that they can still bring fresh air into your home while simultaneously cooling or heating the space. This prevents you from wasting energy.
For example, if the air in your house seems stale on a hot summer day, you may want to open the door or windows, but you don’t want to risk letting heat into your property. An HRV or ERV can help. These systems bring fresh air into your home and pre-cool the air in the process. This allows you to increase your home comfort as well as high indoor air quality.
Choosing an HRV or ERV
Once you’ve determined that you need better ventilation in your house, the next step is to select a heat or energy recovery ventilator.
The main difference between these systems is ERV systems also transfer moisture during the heat exchange process. This can help eliminate humidity from your house. HRV systems do not transfer moisture, but they are effective in colder climates.
Because of the cold temperatures we experience in the Mid-Valley, many homeowners opt for the HRV units. However, this might not be the right choice for you. Instead, call Advantage Heating & Air Conditioning, LLC, and let our experts help you determine which unit is best for your house.
