Keeping Cool and Smart with an Energy Recovery Ventilator If you reside in a warmer climate, perhaps you’ve questioned if improving your indoor air ventilation is actually energy efficient. After all, it’s costly keeping your home cool. If you properly ventilate, you may bring some of that heat back in the house, making your HVAC system work overtime and increasing your energy bill. Well, you’ll be glad to know that you can have your triple-layer chocolate 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 transfer 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 suitable for warmer climates. They’re also ideal for newer or remodeled homes that tend to be more energy efficient, and are likely sealed more tightly, leading to inadequate airflow. If you want to avoid pockets of stale and/or contaminated air, you may want to research options for an energy recovery ventilator for your Hillsborough area home.
