Heat and Energy Recovery Ventilators in McKinney, TX and Surrounding Areas
One of the biggest contributors to poor indoor air quality is the loss of fresh airflow during summer and winter. During these times of year, people will often close all of their doors and windows in an effort to maintain climate control. That’s all well and good for maintaining a comfortable temperature, but it’ll quickly cause your indoor air to go stale. If you want to reintroduce fresh air into your home without compromising your climate control, take advantage of the heat and energy recovery ventilator services at Adon Complete Air Conditioning & Heating.
What is a Heat or Energy Recovery Ventilator?
Heat recovery ventilators (HRVs) and energy recovery ventilators (ERVs) are systems designed to reintroduce fresh air flow into your home without compromising climate control. They consist of a heat exchanger that’s inserted into the home’s ducts as well as an additional duct that runs out of the home to let fresh air in and get rid of old stale air.
How HRVs and ERVs Work
While the climate control system is operating, air is drawn in through the additional duct to the heat exchanger. At the same time, some of the air being circulated through the home’s ducts already flows through the heat exchanger in the other direction.
As the two airflows pass each other, they somewhat equalize each other’s temperatures. So, the air flowing into the home will be roughly the same temperature as the air already circulating through the ducts. The only difference between HRVs and ERVs is that an energy recovery ventilator has the added ability to maintain humidity levels between the home and the air flowing into the system.
Which System is Right for You?
When it comes to systems like this, it can often be difficult to tell whether you would benefit from using one. Their effects may seem subtle, but you would be surprised what a difference one makes after you’ve installed it in your home.
If you’re not sure whether you could benefit from having an ERV or HRV system installed in your home, give us a call and we will consult with you. We can evaluate your home to determine which system would be best for your needs.
Let Us Handle Your HRV and ERV Needs
It’s important that you find a professional you trust to handle your HRV and ERV installations. Installing one of these systems requires a fair bit of engineering and construction work, since it requires splicing ducts together and cutting a new hole in your home’s outer wall.
