Heat and Energy Recovery Ventilators in Raleigh, NC
When you get to those high intensity points of the year when the temperatures dip really low or peak super high, you’re probably not opening your windows super often. We don’t blame you—who wants to let in uncomfortable temperatures? The only problem with this is that keeping your windows closed throughout the majority of the year means that your home will become stuffy, stale, and full of trapped pollutants.
The solution to problems like these is heating recovery ventilators and energy recovery ventilators. You can contact the indoor air quality experts at Sloan Service Company, Inc. to learn more about these systems. Our NATE-certified technicians are well-versed in all the innovative technology.

What’s an HRV System?
First things first—let’s cover what an HRV system is. Heat recovery ventilators work very similarly to energy recovery ventilators. They draw in fresh air into a building or home and pre-heat or pre-cool this fresh air using the air that’s already inside your home.
An HRV system works like this: imagine that it’s a cold day toward the end of December. You’re warm and toasty, but the air quality is a little low. An HRV system will draw in a fresh stream of air into your home. Don’t think that this system will blast freezing cold winter air straight into the house, however. An HRV system is so great because it pre-warms the stream of fresh air before it’s permitted inside. This is what professionals call "counter flow exchange." Manufacturers specifically design HRV systems to give you the most energy and comfort with the least amount of stress possible.
Is an ERV System Right for You?
Homeowners are often confused about the difference between HRV and ERV systems. Sometimes, an ERV system is the better option for your home. The key difference between the two systems is that an ERV unit allows moisture to move through that counter flow exchange process that we spoke about above. This allows for temperature control in your home and indoor humidity control.
It’s so common for homeowners to struggle with their humidity levels in their home. We have pretty balmy conditions here in Raleigh after all. If you’re interested in an ERV system that’s going to keep your home comfortable, efficient, and balanced, make sure you contact our team.
