Essentially, the Aprilaire Energy Recovery Ventilator is an efficient, effective way to exchange stale inside air for fresh outside air. In winter months, the exclusive EnergyMax Transfer Core uses the heat of indoor air to warm up the incoming cold fresh air, recovering about 77% of the energy. In summer, warm fresh air passes near outgoing conditioned air, cooling it down. The beauty of the EnergyMax Transfer Core is its use of enthalpic technology. This technology enables the transfer of moisture as well as heat.

The popularity of the enthalpic-type ventilator has increased all over the country because of its superior ability to control humidity levels in both winter and summer. The result is greater indoor comfort at the lowest possible cost. Noise is also reduced, since you can enjoy fresh air without leaving windows open. Plus, a fresher, safer home is a home with greater value. While the ideal time to install Aprilaire is during construction, the Energy Recovery Ventilator can be added to any existing heating/cooling system.

Benefits of an Aprilaire Energy Recovery Ventilator:

Provides a constant, controlled supply of fresh air to your home year-round.
Reduces excess moisture content.
Reduces unhealthy indoor air pollutants, such as radon, formaldehyde, smoke, and odors.
Reduces air conditioning load by pre-cooling and removing excess moisture from incoming fresh air during the summer.
Handles up to a 3,600 sq. ft. home and conserves energy by effectively retaining the energy value from indoor air.
Helps produce a quiet, safe, secure, and healthy indoor environment.

FAQ's:

  Can an ERV be installed in an existing home as well as a new home?
Yes, it can be installed in any home and become an integral part of the heating and air conditioning system. Your heating and cooling contractor can furnish specific details for your home - please use our Dealer Locator on this site to find one near you.

 Will an ERV help reduce radon and odors in the home?
Yes, although it's difficult to quote specific efficiencies for each type of pollutant. The fact that stale indoor air is constantly being replaced by fresh outside air is your assurance that this is taking place.

 How often is it necessary to service an ERV?
We recommend about every six months. The simple procedures are fully described on the instructions provided with each unit. These maintenance procedures can be completed by you or your contractor. Here are the general maintenance activities: - Clean the permanent filters and re-coat with adhesive as necessary. - Clean energy transfer core by lightly vacuuming with a soft brush attachment. - Check the fresh air intake vent and clean as necessary.

 Is a special type of heating or cooling system necessary in order to use an ERV?
No. An ERV can be utilized with any forced air system equipped with a blower and duct system. It can also be used with non-forced air systems as an independent system.

 Can an ERV be installed in an existing home, as well as a new home?
Yes, it can be installed in any home and become an integral part of the heating and air conditioning system. Your heating and cooling contractor can furnish specific details for your home - please use our Dealer Locator on this site to find one near you.

 What is the difference between a HRV (Heat Recovery Ventilator) and an ERV?
Heat recovery ventilators will transfer temperature only from the high temperature air to the low temperature air. Energy recovery ventilators transfer both temperature and moisture. Since transferring both temperature and moisture has benefits in both winter and summer, ERV's are a better choice in all but the most northern climates for providing year-round fresh air to the home.

 What is the main benefit of an ERV?
It constantly supplies fresh air to provide a healthy indoor environment by reducing odors and/or indoor pollutants, such as radon, formaldehyde, tobacco smoke, nitrogen dioxides, carbon monoxide and pesticides.
