Why Do Homes Need ERV’s & HRV’s?

Insulation standards and our ability to create airtight homes have increased greatly over the past 20 years. These changes have enabled us to create homes which are significantly more energy efficient than the homes of the past. Previously, excess moisture and fresh air could leave or enter the home thorough cracks or spaces where the insulation was lacking. Now that insulation techniques and standards have grown, the problem has shifted from energy loss, into an inability for the home to breathe. This can cause a feeling of stuffiness, too much moisture in the home, and increased allergens. An ERV or HRV exchanges old, stale air in the home out for fresh air. While slightly varied in what each type offers,  either system is designed to elevate your comfort and alleviate air flow issues in the home.

Heat Recovery Ventilators

Most simply put, an HRV removes stuffy air from your home, and replaces it with fresh outdoor air. The system has two ducts- one to carry in the fresh air, and one to remove the stale. Each side of the ducting passes through a heat exchanger-which allows heat to transfer from one airstream to the other, both bringing in fresh air, as well as reducing heat costs. This will help your home maintain ideal humidity levels indoors, as well as reduce allergens in the home. An HRV is an ideal HVAC addition to any home that just isnt generating the fresh air you need!

Happy, Humid, Houseplants.

Your skin and lungs aren’t the only beneficiaries of a balanced air environment. Houseplants thrive in moist air! So if you have plants in your home that seem to have a hard time keeping up in the winter, a whole home humidifier could help bring them back to life.
Plants not only absorb moisture through their roots, but also through the air and their leaves. Although they do not have lungs like us, the increase in humidity absolutely affects their vitality.
So, if you like to breathe deep and soak in the sunshine with your plants, perhaps considering a whole-home humidifer would be an ideal addition to your home!
