Indoor Air Quality
- Maintenance Plan
One of the major annoyances when it comes to indoor air quality is that it often finds itself in conflict with climate control. Say you want to open the windows and get some fresh air flowing into your home. Your air conditioner has been running for a while, and the air is starting to get a bit stale. The problem, though, is that it’s 100+ degrees outside. If you open the windows to get some fresh air, you’re just going to make it harder for your air conditioner to keep your home cool. So what do you do?

What is a Heat or Energy Recovery Ventilator?
Basically, a heat recovery ventilator (HRV) or energy recovery ventilator (ERV) is a system designed to introduce fresh air into the home without compromising climate control. The system brings fresh air in, while venting stale air out. The two airflows pass each other in the system’s heat exchanger, and equalize each other’s temperatures. This means that fresh air entering the home will be much closer to the temperature of the air already inside than the air outside. The only real difference between the two is that energy recovery ventilators equalize humidity levels between the home and the outside environment, while heat recovery ventilators only transfer temperature.
We can Install Your HRV and ERV Systems for You
Installing an ERV or HRV system usually involves altering the ductwork in the home, which means you don’t want to be doing it yourself. You should find a contractor you trust to handle your new system installation for you. That way, you can be sure that the job is done right, and will operate without issues. Our HVAC service professionals can handle all of your HRV and ERV system installation needs. If you’re looking for a new heat recovery or energy recovery ventilator, we can install it for you.
Have Your HRV or ERV Examined and Repaired as Need be
While these kinds of ventilator systems are less prone to breaking down than, say, an air conditioner, they can still develop issues over time. It’s important that you have your ventilators inspected at least once every year or so, to make sure that they’re still functioning properly. You don’t want to have your ventilator break down on you in the middle of a hot or cold day, when you probably need it the most.
