How Heat and Energy Recovery Ventilators Work
When you open a window on a hot day to bring in fresh air, you also bring in heat. This means much of the energy used to power the AC goes to waste and you have a less comfortable house. But now imagine harnessing the energy your AC has already used to cool the indoor air and applying it to the incoming fresh air to cool it as well. That’s what an ERV/HRV system does.
Using the example above, here is how an ERV can help you enjoy fresh outdoor air on a hot day. The ERV draws two currents of air into it: one a current of fresh but hot air from outside, and the other a current of cool but stale air from inside. The two currents pass through the ERV and move past each other, where heat leaves the incoming fresh air and cools it. The fresh air entering the house is now pre-cooled, and the stale air is exhausted outside. The process works in reverse during cold weather: the warm indoor air pre-heats the cold outdoor air.
HRV vs. ERV—Which Is Best for Your House?
An HRV works similarly to an ERV, but there is one important difference. In an ERV, the two air currents can exchange moisture because they come into contact. In an HRV, the two currents don’t touch and use a heat exchanger to transfer energy. This means an HRV system won’t alter humidity levels, while an ERV offers some humidity control. One of our professionals can help you determine which type is suited to your home. Heat recovery ventilators are more effective in colder climates, while energy recovery ventilators are powerful for humid summer days.
