The HVAC and Air Quality Dilemma

In order to use air conditioners and heaters at their maximum efficiency in Hickory, NC, it’s important to keep a tight seal. That means no open doors, no open windows, and sealants or weather stripping applied to openings. However, this causes the air in circulation to become "stale." This can trap indoor pollutants and create an imbalance in humidity levels.

Fortunately, Ace Hardware Home Services offers products that can keep your air fresh without compromising efficiency. The most common are heat and energy recover ventilators. These devices work by mixing indoor and outdoor air, exchanging the two, and then reintroducing them back inside and outside. The fresh, outdoor air will be filtered inside the home, and the old, stale air from inside will be sent outside.

Save Money on Your Energy Bills with an ERV or HRV System

Heat recovery ventilators work just as described above. Energy recovery ventilators, however, also transfer moisture between the air currents. This helps balance humidity, which can be useful in maintaining not just efficiency but comfort. Both systems reduce the strain on your heating and cooling systems and improve indoor air quality.

When the alternative is to open a window at the same time that you’re heating or cooling the air, you end up wasting a lot of energy. In fact, it’s estimated that HRV and ERV systems recover around 60% to 70% of the energy that would otherwise be lost by opening the windows. If your goal is to improve efficiency and alleviate some of the costs of fuel—whether it’s natural gas or electricity—recovery ventilators can help you.
