Keeping Cool and Smart with an Energy Recovery Ventilator If you are living in a warmer climate, perhaps you’ve wondered if improving your indoor air ventilation is truly energy efficient. After all, it’s pricey keeping things cool. If you properly ventilate, you might let some of that heat back in the house, making your HVAC system work overtime and affecting 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 taking away 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 also, removing a lot of incoming humidity. Your home now has controlled ventilation that has high energy efficiency. Energy recovery ventilators are perfect for warmer climates. They’re also a good option for newer or remodeled homes that tend to be more energy efficient, and are likely sealed more tightly, leading to inadequate airflow.
