HEAT AND ENERGY RECOVERY VENTILATORS IN GASTONIA, NC
Today’s homes are built airtight, to allow for as little airflow loss as possible. As a result, your HVAC system has the ability to work as efficiently as possible, but at what cost? With doors and windows sealed up, how are you getting any fresh air into your home? A lack of ventilation can lead to a buildup of pollutants inside your home—pollen, dander, and more. To develop proper ventilation and discourage energy waste, consider an energy recovery ventilator (ERV) or a heat recovery ventilator (HRV).
These systems are designed to help you achieve optimal comfort in your Gastonia, NC home. At FSM Heat & Air our licensed and certified HVAC technicians are factory trained and have the expertise required to professionally install, replace, and service ERV and HRV systems. Call us today
WHAT TYPE OF ERV IS BEST FOR YOUR HOME?
We offer two major types of energy recovery ventilators. The first type is the standard ERV while the other is the heat recovery ventilator (HRV). These systems both work by using a heat exchanger to shift heat from either indoor or outdoor air to the other. They are typically centrally mounted with individual duct systems, but can also be provided with small window–mounted options.
ENERGY RECOVERY VENTILATOR
Ideal for use in warmer weather, ERV systems are designed to remove humidity from incoming fresh air. It does not function as a dehumidifier, but rather transfers moisture from incoming humid air to the stale indoor air being vented to the outside.
HEAT RECOVERY VENTILATOR
HRV systems reclaim lost energy from exhausted stale indoor air to warm incoming fresh air by retaining heat during cooler seasons and removing it during warmer seasons. These systems reduce high humidity, pollutants, and odors by replacing stale air with fresh warm air.
WHY YOU SHOULD CONSIDER AN ERV SYSTEM INSTALLATION
Although the cost of installation can appear significant, this expense is offset by the decreased need for additional heat or cooling power when transferring air. An ERV or HRV system can have a significantly positive impact on your Gastonia, NC home and its ability to remain energy efficient all year long. Upgrading your ventilation system to an ERV system or HRV system will help you maintain healthy, clean air while saving money on your heating and cooling bills. Be sure to have your system installed by a professional, licensed HVAC technician on our team to ensure top performance.
