3 Benefits of Investing in an Energy Recovery Ventilator

Modern homes have outstanding insulation for better efficiency than older buildings. Unfortunately, contaminants such as dust, dirt, pet dander, smoke, and pollen can stay indoors along with conditioned air. In many houses, indoor air has more pollutants than outdoor air. An energy recovery ventilator or ERV can help you conserve energy, keep yourself and your family healthy, and make your Sarasota, Florida, home more comfortable.

Energy Savings

Energy recovery ventilators operate like heat pumps, moving heat away from stale, outgoing air in winter and reversing the direction of the compressor in summer. That way, you can remove pollutants without wasting energy like you would when opening a window or door. An ERV can lower utility bills inside your home and extend your HVAC system’s life by reducing wear as well.

Better Indoor Air Quality

ERVs filter outdoor air before it enters your home and ensures that it doesn’t mix with stale air. Otherwise, poor indoor air quality could lead to asthma or allergy symptoms, rashes, eye irritation, sore throats, and many other health issues. If you always feel better when you’re out of your home, you could need some ventilation.


Whole-home ventilation can remove bad smells along with avoiding pests and biological growth. It can also make your home more welcoming for guests by reducing humidity. An ERV can let you vacuum and dustless often by removing many of the particulates in the air that would normally settle on your floors and furniture. It can even keep colds, flu, and other common illnesses from spreading as easily.
