Keeping Cool and Smart with an Energy Recovery Ventilator If you reside in a warmer area, perhaps you’ve questioned if improving your indoor air ventilation is really energy efficient. After all, it’s pricey keeping your home cool. If you properly ventilate, you may bring some of that heat back in the house, making your HVAC system work overtime and affecting 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 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 eliminating 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 also, 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 may be 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 Birmingham area home.
