What’s an ERV System?

So you might be wondering to yourself … what is an ERV system? “ERV” stands for Energy Recovery Ventilator. An energy recovery ventilator is a whole-house ventilator device that provides your home with a controlled method of ventilation. ERVs in particular pre-cool the fresh air that’s coming into your home. ERV systems eliminate the problem ofchoosing between fresh air or a cool home. These systems can help you have both. An ERV system can recover around 70% to 80% of the energy in your home’s existing air and deliver this energy to your home’s incoming air. They’re incredibly cost-effective in a high heating, high humidity climate like ours.

Your air quality can really take a nosedive during the dead of winter or the height of summer. If you’re ready to improve your home’s indoor air quality while reducing the amount of strain on your heating or cooling system, it’s time to contact our professionals.
