An energy recovery ventilator is a device that a professional installs into the ventilation system of a home. The ERV connects to the heater/AC on one side and to an outdoor vent on the other. The ERV draws in a current of fresh outdoor air and another of stale indoor air. The two currents run through each other, and via a process called counter–flow heat exchange, heat transfers from one current to the other. What this does is "pre–condition" the outside air before it reaches the heater or air conditioner. If the outdoor air is cold, it gains heat and becomes warmer, making the heater’s job easier. If the outdoor air is warm, it loses heat to the other current and cools down, making the AC’s job easier.
An ERV achieves a number of functions at once:
You cannot simply purchase an ERV off of a store shelf and put it in your home. These devices must have professionals to install them. The experts must also make sure that you receive the right unit for your home, or it will not make any difference.
ERVs will need occasional inspections, and sometimes might require repairs. Make sure you turn to professionals to handle this work as well.
