Balance Home Humidity ASAP With an ERV
ERVs exchange the energy in stale air being removed from your home and use it to treat (precondition) the fresh outdoor air that’s drawn in. This means cold winter air is warmed and humidified as it’s brought into your home and hot summer air is pre-cooled and dehumidified. With an ERV, it is normal for the exhausted air to feel cooler than the ventilation air during the heating seasons. For this reason, ERVs are very efficient and effective at improving home comfort.
4 Reasons Why ERVs Are Worth Adding
If you’ve never had an ERV system, you probably don’t know what you’re missing in terms of cost savings and comfort. Here’s a quick list of benefits that will make you want to ask us about adding one at your home:
- Energy savings—by exchanging and reusing the energy you’ve already paid for to heat your home, you can bring in fresh air without wasting money.
- Improved air quality—proper ventilation allows you to breathe cleaner outdoor air, with fewer pollutants, germs, and strange odors.
- Balanced humidity—an ERV maintains a relative humidity of 40 to 50 percent, which is ideal for your health and protects your home from both excess moisture and mold as well as the cracking and damage caused by overly dry air.
- Reduced demands on your heating system—drawing energy from your already heated air supply means your furnace doesn’t have to work so hard and will likely last longer.
