Keeping Cool and Smart with an Energy Recovery Ventilator If you’ve chosen to live life in a warmer climate, perhaps you’ve pondered if improving your indoor air ventilation is actually energy efficient. After all, it’s costly keeping your home cool. If you properly ventilate, you could allow some of that heat back in the house, making your HVAC system work overtime and affecting your energy bill. Well, you’ll be glad to know that you can have your geographic molten lava cake AND eat it too… with an energy recovery ventilator. In a lot of 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 relocate the heat back out of the house. Not only is the heat transferred, but water vapor is also, removing a lot of incoming humidity. Your home now has controlled ventilation that has high energy efficiency. Energy recovery ventilators are ideal for warmer climates. They’re also ideal for newer or remodeled homes that tend to be more energy efficient, and therefore are 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 Austin area home.
