Indoor Air Quality
- Home Automation
Our mild winters and warm summers can lead many of us to neglect energy efficiency: content simply to crank up the air conditioner when our Gainesville, FL weather turns hot and muggy. However, energy efficiency can help you save on those high AC bills, as well as heating bills in the winter. For a quality product that does the job, we recommend heat recovery and energy recovery ventilators.
At North Central Florida Air Conditioning, we have experience with a wide variety of HVAC and energy products, including ERV and HRV systems. If you think such a system would be a good fit for you, or you already own one and it needs repairs or maintenance services, call on our trained professionals today. We serve homes throughout Gainesville, FL: improving lives by improving homes!
How Do They Work?
Both the heat recovery ventilator and the energy recovery ventilator involve a pair of ducts placed at the top of the structure, connected by a heat exchanger in the middle. One duct blows air out of the building, while the other pulls air in. the heat exchanger ensures that no temperature loss is experienced.
That may seem like much ado about nothing, but it can add up to quite a bit. ERV and HRV systems can improve energy efficiency considerably: taking a big bite out of monthly heating and cooling bills as well as reducing wear and tear on your HVAC system. Over time, that can add up to huge savings, as well as extending the life of your heating and cooling system a great deal.
What Other Benefits Do They Provide?
Energy recovery systems provide another big benefit to buildings in which they are installed. By "swapping out" the air without forcing you to open windows or doors, they can help your air stay clean and fresh. Otherwise, you end up recirculating germs and dust, since we rarely open doors during our Gainesville, FL summers lest we let out all the cold air. Additionally, ERV systems transfer humidity, which an HRV system does not.
The results further improve the efficiency of your HVAC system, as well as cutting down on excess dust and other germs. It can also help prevent the spread of illness, since germs and viruses don’t simply recirculate in the building and pass from family member to family member.
