Energy Recovery Ventilators in Indianapolis, IN

What is an Energy Recovery Ventilator?

An energy recovery ventilator, or ERV, is essentially a mechanical ventilator, but with a twist: a heat exchanger. This allows it to transfer heat between air streams, granting homeowners proper ventilation without sacrificing efficiency.

To put it simply, during the summer, the ERV will transfer heat from the fresh, but warm incoming air to the stale, but cool outgoing air. This precools the incoming air so that your AC doesn’t have to work quite as hard to do so. The reverse applies in the winter; the system prewarms and humidifies the incoming air, taking much of the burden off your heater.

Professional Installation is a Must

Like any whole-house indoor air quality or HVAC system, your ERV system is going to require professional installation. Professional installation ensures that your new system is set up to give you the comfort and efficiency that you deserve. We want to make sure that your energy recovery ventilator is properly integrated with your existing HVAC system, and the only way to do that is to hire an expert to install the system.

In addition to installation, your system is going to require prompt repairs and annual maintenance to keep it running efficiently for years to come. Fortunately, Vital Heating & Air offers these comprehensive services for homeowners in Indianapolis, IN and the surrounding areas. So, be sure to contact us today to get started!
