Energy Recovery Ventilation
The Future Is Now (& Really Comfortable!)
It's easy to think of an HVAC system as an older, proven technology that has no more room for improvement - but that is not the case. Advances in technology are always coming down the line to make your system more energy-efficient, more ecologically friendly and more capable of providing the comfortable home you want.
One such advance is Energy Recovery Ventilation (also called ERV), a new HVAC solution that combines the benefits of an air filtration system with a high-tech heat and moisture exchange system that uses your home's own temperature to pre-heat or pre-cool the incoming air and maintain a constant, comfy humidity.
How Does It Work?
In the summer months, your ERV system will draw heat and moisture from the incoming air and exchange it with the already cooled air heading out the exhaust back outside. This cools the outer air down on its way to the main HVAC system, making it so it doesn't have to work as hard to make the air comfortable. In the winter months, this process is reversed; heat from the inner air gets traded with the incoming air, warming it up before your furnace or heat pump takes over.
The air also passes through a filtration system that traps germs, dust, smoke, VOCs or other contaminants from outside and keeps them from entering your home. The constant exchange of air helps prevent the air in your home from becoming stale or unpleasant and helps to inhibit the growth of mold or mildew.
Altogether, an ERV is the equivalent of giving your HVAC system superpowers. All the things you need for a perfectly comfortable home - steady temperatures, stable humidity and clean air - are provided by this advanced system. If that's not enough, its extra efficiency will save you money on your energy bill as well.
