Heat and Energy Recovery Ventilators in Oklahoma City, OK
At the peak of summer, as well as during the dead of winter, most Oklahoma City, OK homeowners keep their windows and doors tightly shut. This makes sense: in order for your HVAC systems to work as effectively and efficiently as they should, you must not let any conditioned air escape.
While this is beneficial for your HVAC systems, however, it has a negative impact on the quality of your indoor air. Fortunately, Comfort Incorporated carries and services quality heat recovery and energy recovery systems to solve this dilemma. We keep your family safe, healthy and comfortable through superior products and reliable customer service. Contact us today!
How These Systems Work
Energy recovery ventilators (ERV systems) and heat recovery ventilators (HRV systems) are devices that enable fresh air to flow in and out of your home without negatively affecting your climate control systems. These systems serve as a form of heat exchanger, and they are installed directly into your ductwork.
While the air from your home flows out of these systems, they receive air from the outside. As this process occurs, the temperature is equalized within the system, meaning that in the winter your air will still be sufficiently heated and in the summer you can still rely on efficient cooling. The only factor that differentiates an HRV from an ERV is that the latter also transfers humidity levels from outside the home while an HRV does not.
The Benefits of HRVs and ERVs
You may be one of those Oklahoma City, OK homeowners who limit the use of your heating system because you don’t like how dry the air gets. What if there was a better option though? You don’t have to sacrifice your comfort just to avoid stale air.
In fact, keeping your home closed up during the winter can have a negative affect no matter how much or little you use your heater. The lack of fresh air flowing into your home traps airborne contaminants in your ductwork, circulating them throughout the home whenever you do turn on your HVAC system.
Breathing in airborne contaminants on a regular basis is going to have a negative impact on your health. Using a professionally installed and serviced HRV or ERV, however, will improve your indoor air quality and limit the risk of illness for you and your family.
The Importance of Professional ERV and HRV Services
When it comes to having an HRV or ERV system installed, you only want to trust a professional technician. Most homes in Oklahoma City, OK are not naturally outfitted for a system of this kind, and alterations to your ductwork must be accurate in order for them to work as they are intended to.
These systems are not as prone to the problems that other indoor air quality or home comfort system appliances may face, however you may eventually need repairs. The best way to avoid problems with your HRV or ERV is to have our professionals examine your system at least once every couple of years to ensure it’s operating as it should and doesn’t have any pending issues.
