There are two categories of ventilation systems—heat recovery ventilation (HRV) and energy recovery ventilation (ERV).
Both are perfect for new homes or renovated homes with energy upgrades, but are built with different climates in mind.
Places with a wide assortment of weather patterns, including the Midwest, can find value from both systems. Contact us for extra information about which system is best for Buellton.
Heat Recovery Ventilation
HRV operates best in chillier climates. It exhausts air from your house, replacing it with fresh air from around your home.
As an energy-efficient option, it holds on to the heat from your indoor air. That way, you shouldn’t have to pay to heat fresh (but chillier) air from the outdoors.
Energy Recovery Ventilation
ERV is great for warm, humid climates. It draws the heat and moisture out of your space’s air and guides it outside. This helps you keep the best humidity levels in your house. Balanced humidity can keep your house more comfortable and cause you to use your air conditioning less frequently—saving you more money on cooling costs.
