Whole-home air exchangers can help improve the quality of the air inside your home by managing humidity levels, removing stale air and pollutants, and bringing in fresh, filtered air from the outside. Stafford Home Service Inc. offers various air exchanger options, including Heat Recovery Ventilators and Energy Recovery Ventilators.
HEAT RECOVERY VENTILATORS (HRVs)
Heat recovery ventilators, or air exchange systems, bring fresh air into your home without the pollutants, allergens, and moisture that are possible from opening a window. An HRV system moves the stale air out, and prevents areas of excessive moisture that foster the growth of mold, mildew, and other bacteria. HRVs are ideal for homes in Minnesota due to our colder climate. HRVs are able to capture heat before removing the air to the outside.
ENERGY RECOVERY VENTILATORS (ERVs)
Energy recovery ventilators minimize energy loss by controlling the ventilation of your home to the outside. In the winter, warm exhaust air transfers heat to the cold, fresh supply air through an exchanger. In the summer, the opposite is true: the air inside your home cools down the warmer air that’s drawn into your home.
In addition, an ERV transfers moisture to control humidity levels in your home. Contact Stafford Home Service Inc. today to learn more about air exchangers.
