What is an Energy Recovery Ventilator?

An energy recovery ventilator is a rather ingenious device. Such systems are integrated directly into an HVAC system, and they allow for the sufficient ventilation that your home needs while simultaneously ensuring that very minimal amounts of energy go to waste. This is where the recovery of energy comes in.

ERVs, as such devices are also referred to, vent the old, stale air in your home outside, while bringing fresh air in to maintain great indoor air quality. Essentially, this is what you do when you throw open the windows on a nice, mild day. However, an ERV uses the energy in the outgoing air in order to pretreat the fresh air coming in. This means that, in the summer, the hot, fresh air entering your home is precooled by the conditioned but stale air leaving your home. The two streams of air don’t intermingle much; just enough to allow for the transfer of some humidity in order to optimize the quality of the air in your home. During the cooler time of the year, the system simply reverses its operation. Chilly, fresh air is brought in, and the stale, warm air going out heats it up as they pass by one another.
