Keeping Cool and Smart with an Energy Recovery Ventilator If you’ve chosen to live life in a warmer area, perhaps you’ve questioned if improving your indoor air ventilation is truly energy efficient. After all, it’s costly keeping your home cool. If you properly ventilate, you could allow some of that heat back in the house, making your HVAC system work overtime and impacting your energy bill. Well, you’ll be happy to know that you can have your favorite kind of cake AND eat it too… with an energy recovery ventilator. In various ways, it’s just like the Heat Recovery Ventilator: two fans drive the air in and out of your home, bringing fresh air in, while eliminating stale air. But unlike the heat recovery ventilator, energy recovery ventilators move the heat back out of the house. Not only is the heat transferred, but water vapor is too, removing a lot of incoming humidity. Now you’ve got controlled ventilation that has high energy efficiency. Energy recovery ventilators are ideal for warmer climates. They’re also great for newer or remodeled homes that tend to be more energy efficient, and are likely sealed more tightly, leading to inadequate airflow.
