Keeping Cool and Smart with an Energy Recovery Ventilator If you are living in a warmer climate, perhaps you’ve pondered if improving your indoor air ventilation is actually energy efficient. After all, it’s costly keeping your living space cool. If you properly ventilate, you may bring some of that heat back in the house, making your HVAC system work overtime and impacting 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 many 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 removing stale air. But unlike the heat recovery ventilator, energy recovery ventilators relocate the heat back out of the house. Not only is the heat transferred, but water vapor is too, removing a lot of incoming humidity. Now you’ve got controlled ventilation that has high energy efficiency. Energy recovery ventilators are perfect for warmer climates. They’re also ideal for newer or remodeled homes that tend to be more energy efficient, and therefore are 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 Albany area home. Call Roland J.
