Fresh, Conditioned, and Humidity-Balanced Air—Crucial for a Healthy Indoor Environment

Good ventilation is an important part of maintaining healthy indoor air quality. Since homes don’t self-ventilate, mechanical ventilation is a way to dilute the chemicals, particles, odors, and humidity caused by the people and building materials inside. Efficient and innovative Carrier Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERVs) bring fresh air into your home throughout the cooling season, while Heat Recovery Ventilators (HRVs) keep your air warm and fresh during the heating season—releasing stale air and pollutants outside your home.

Why not just open the windows to ventilate your home or business? In most parts of the country, this defeats the intent of saving energy in your home. With the use of ventilators, excess moisture is also removed from the recirculated air. Properly maintained humidity levels, thanks to ventilator use, will maximize energy efficiency and reduce your utility costs. ERVs go one step further by transferring a portion of the humidity to either the incoming or outgoing air, depending on the season. That means increased efficiency and comfort.

The decision of whether to use an HRV or ERV can be confusing. Ask the experts at Seider Heating, Plumbing & Electrical about the best ventilator for your home and needs.
