Heat and Energy Recovery Ventilators in Puyallup, WA

Do you ever have one of those days when you stop realize that you’ve been running your heater or air conditioner for days on end and haven’t let any fresh air in your home? This is all too common during the height of the summer or the dead of winter. If you want to let fresh air in your home on these days, a heat recovery ventilator or energy recovery ventilator is the answer.

HRV systems and ERV systems recover around 70% to 80% of the energy in your existing air and then deliver this into your incoming air. It’s all the benefit of a fresh breeze without the fuss. If you need a cost-effective, energy-efficient way to boost your home’s IAQ make sure you contact our team.

The Difference Between HRV and ERV

HRV and ERV systems are new types of HVAC systems to a lot of people. You might not realize which is better for your home, so we want to give a quick and informative run through of each system. First let’s cover the similarities between the two systems.

Both ERV and HRV systems pre-cool and pre-heat fresh air entering your HVAC system. These systems both do this by running your home’s fresh air through an outgoing current of indoor air inside a heat exchanger. This helps you improve your indoor air quality without sacrificing your temperature control.

  • HRV Systems: A heat recovery ventilation system works through the counter-flow heat exchange. These systems are great if you live in a cold climate but also need pristine indoor air quality.
  • ERV Systems: ERV systems do the counter-flow heat exchange too, but the difference is that they also transfer moisture. These are better for warmer, humid climates. If you struggle with your IAQ in summer this might be the right system for you.

The Benefits of Whole-House Ventilation

The problem with opening up a window to let in fresh air is that it can’t ventilate your entire home efficiently. You need a properly designed and installed whole-house ventilation system to help your home get going. HRV systems and ERV systems are the way to do this.
