What an Energy Recovery Ventilator Does
The job of an energy recovery ventilator (ERV) is to pre–heat or pre–cool air brought in from the outside of a house using the air from the inside of the house. The ERV exhausts the air from inside, but before that air leaves, it passes through the incoming fresh air. A process called counter–flow heat exchange causes the fresh incoming air to either lose heat or gain heat, adjusting its temperature to match the comfort needs of the house.
In other words, during a hot day, the warmer outdoor air will lose its heat to the cooler indoor air, lowering its temperature so that the air conditioning system won’t need to strain against an influx of hot air. During a cold day, the process works in reverse.
How You Can Benefit from an ERV Installation
There are a number of ways that an ERV will help out your house. The most important is that it brings in the much–needed fresh air that will improve stuffy and contaminant–filled conditions indoors—and will do it without making additional work for the air conditioner or heater. It’s a way to enjoy a better ventilated house without having pay more to heat and cool and, and without losing any comfort. Another advantage of an ERV is that it also transfers moisture between the two currents, so it balanced indoor humidity. This works both for humid summer conditions and dry winter conditions.
