Is an HRV or ERV System Right for Your Home?
Heat recovery and energy recovery ventilators, at their core, are mechanical ventilators. But there’s a twist—they also both serve as heat exchangers. This feature enables them to transfer heat between air streams, bringing fresh air into your Havertown area home while also pre-heating or cooling that incoming air. This way, you’re able to feel as comfortable as possible without wasting valuable energy.
The Difference between Heat Recovery and Energy Recovery
HRV systems and ERV systems are the same in a few ways. Most importantly, they both bring your home better ventilation. So, how is a homeowner to choose between these two systems for their living space?
It helps to know the key difference between the two. An ERV system transfers moisture during the heat exchange process, in addition to heat. Therefore, if you’re trying to lower humidity, an ERV system can certainly be the way to do it.
This doesn’t mean HRV systems are ineffective! On the contrary, they’re extremely useful. They just don’t transfer moisture as well as ERV systems do. Therefore, depending on where on the Main Line your home is, one may benefit you more than the other. The best thing you can do is talk to one of our pros in order to make an educated decision.
