There are two kinds of ventilation systems—heat recovery ventilation (HRV) and energy recovery ventilation (ERV).
Each one is great for new homes or recently updated homes with energy upgrades, but are designed with different climates in mind.
Areas with a wide variety of weather patterns, including the Midwest, can find value from both systems. Contact us for extra information about which system is best for Milledgeville and Middle Georgia.
Heat Recovery Ventilation
HRV functions best in cold climates. It exhausts air from your home, replacing it with fresh air from outside your home.
As an energy-efficient option, it maintains the heat from your indoor air. That way, you won’t have to pay to treat fresh (but colder) air from the outdoors.
Energy Recovery Ventilation
ERV is a good fit for warm, humid climates. It extracts the heat and moisture out of your home’s air and guides it outdoors. This lets you maintain proper humidity levels in your rooms. Balanced humidity can keep your place more comfortable and cause you to use your air conditioning less often—saving you more money on cooling bills.
