Keeping Cool and Smart with an Energy Recovery Ventilator If you are living in a warmer area, perhaps you’ve wondered if improving your indoor air ventilation is truly energy efficient. After all, it’s expensive 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 pleased to know that you can have your triple-layer chocolate cake AND eat it too… with an energy recovery ventilator. In various 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 taking away stale air. But unlike the heat recovery ventilator, energy recovery ventilators transfer heat back out of the house. Not only is the heat transferred, but water vapor is as well, removing a lot of incoming humidity. This provides you with controlled ventilation that has high energy efficiency. Energy recovery ventilators are perfect for warmer climates. They’re also great for newer or remodeled homes that tend to be more energy efficient, and may be sealed more tightly, leading to inadequate airflow. If you want to avoid pockets of stale and/or contaminated air, try an energy recovery ventilator for your Austin area home.
