Balanced ventilation. An Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV) is a fan-powered appliance designed to exhaust stale indoor air to the exterior, while pulling in an equal volume of fresh outdoor air. Image supplied by the Imperial Manufacturing Group.

ERV systems were developed to serve the ventilation needs of tightly sealed, well-insulated houses.
Leaky, inefficient buildings have plenty of uncontrolled air exchange through gaps, cracks and openings that provide pathways for air infiltration and air exfiltration. But in an energy-efficient home that has a tightly sealed “building envelope,” indoor air can easily become stale, unpleasant and even hazardous. It can accumulate odors from cooking and bathing, as well as other pollutants. ERVs eliminate this problem by exchanging stale indoor air for fresh outdoor air. ERV's are designed to work with forced-air heating and cooling systems.
There are many systems that work together to keep the air in your home healthy, comfortable, and inexpensive to heat and cool. There are also many problems that may need to be corrected to ensure a comfortable, energy efficient home.
The technicians at Comfort Services, Inc. are trained to identify these requirements and design a customized indoor air quality plan for your home. We can measure your home’s air exchange rate and install an ERV if necessary. We’ll work with you to ensure the best-possible results: a healthy, comfortable home with lower operating costs.
