We often see our homes as a kind of sanctuary from the harshness and dirtiness of the outside world. However, studies have shown that the air inside a home can actually be many times more polluted than the air outdoors! This is often due to a lack of airflow, which allows pollutants to enter and accumulate in the home without ever getting cycled back out. Whole House Energy Recovery Ventilators can break this cycle, bringing in fresh air while also keeping your home temperature consistently comfortable.
Bring Fresh Air Indoors
Whole House Energy Recovery Ventilators work by cycling fresh air from outside into your home. At the same time, stale indoor air is cycled outside, allowing you to get a cleaner breath of air than you could get without it. This eliminates the unpleasant odors and stale smells that can accumulate inside over time, giving you greater exposure to fresh, healthy air. At the same time, the ventilators also retains much of the heating or cooling energy in your home, allowing you to get fresh air without having to cope with uncomfortable temperatures.
Pollutants can collect in your home if they are not allowed to cycle back outside, with dust, allergens and chemicals building up to unhealthy exposure levels over time. In addition, an unventilated home will have greater levels of moisture, which can promote the growth of black mold and create breeding grounds for harmful insects. A Whole House Energy Recovery Ventilator will cycle pollutants outside and regulate the indoor moisture levels, allowing you to breathe fresh, clean air daily.
