Fresno, CA Energy Recovery Ventilators by Donald P. Dick Air ConditioningGive us a call today: 559-255-1644
ERV systems use the exhaust from your home to generate energy that can be used to better ventilate your living space, providing cleaner, fresher air in the process. There’s a lot of dust, debris, particles, and VOCs in the air you breathe within your own home that can lead to sick building syndrome. An ERV improves your energy efficiency while simultaneously benefiting your family by providing fresh, well-ventilated air at the same time.

How an ERV Works
An ERV has two jobs: apply the energy of your outgoing, stale air to the fresh, incoming air, and integrate that fresh, pre–treated air with your home’s HVAC system. Where does all of this work happen? Right in the core of the ERV device. Using a heat exchanger and a couple of fans, an energy recovery ventilator expels the stale air from your indoors, but as it does so, fresh air from outside is also being drawn in. These air streams meet in the core of the ERV and it is here that the latent energy from the stale outgoing air is applied to the incoming fresh air. This is critical for two reasons: first, the energy that is applied to the incoming air either warms the incoming air or cools the incoming air, depending on the season; second, moisture is either added or absorbed, also depending on the season. Once the incoming air is pre–treated, it passes through an air filter and then enters your HVAC system.
The Benefits of an ERV
As mentioned above, an ERV provides your home with a continuous stream of fresh air; this helps improve ventilation and indoor air quality. But another equally important benefit is what an ERV can do for your HVAC system, and that’s increase energy efficiency. The pre–treating process cools or warms the air before it enters your HVAC system; this means that during the summer, your HVAC system is working with pre–cooled air, and during the winter, it works with pre–warmed air. The result is that your HVAC system doesn’t have to work as hard to provide you with either cooling or heating, and this saves you energy.
