Current houses are built with efficiency as a goal. But that also means they’re strongly sealed and can be a bit stifling.

With correct ventilation, your home can dodge mildew, allergen accumulation and other air quality challenges. Efficient ventilation also helps remove strong aromas, like kitchen smells or tobacco smoke.

While cracking a window can be useful for a bit, it isn’t practical year-round. It can also be challenging if your anyone in your family suffers from allergies.

Categories of Ventilation Systems

There are two classes of ventilation systems—heat recovery ventilation (HRV) and energy recovery ventilation (ERV).

Either is perfect for contemporary homes or remodeled homes with energy improvements, but are designed with a variety of climates in mind.

Areas with a large variety of weather patterns, including the Midwest, can find value from both systems. Contact us for additional information about which type is better for the Bay Area.

Heat Recovery Ventilation

HRV works best in chillier climates. It pushes out air from your space, swapping out fresh air from outside your home.

As an energy-efficient option, it maintains the heat from your indoor air. That way, you won’t have to pay to warm fresh (but cooler) air from around your home.

Energy Recovery Ventilation

ERV is a good fit for warm, humid places. It draws the heat and moisture out of your space’s air and directs it outside. This helps you keep the best humidity levels in your home. Well-adjusted humidity can keep your family more comfortable and cause you to use your air conditioning less—saving you more money on cooling costs.
