Bring the outside air in. And, not by leaving the door open. Geez, were you raised in a barn?
The air outside is generally fresher than the air in your home (unless you live in Los Angeles). The air in your home gets circulated over and over and over. Unless you have top-quality filtration in place, that air gets stale and full of particulates and pollutants.
Air exchangers do exactly what it sounds like – they exchange inside air for outside air. Only, they do it it through your HVAC system, so it gets filtered properly. It essentially feels the same way opening the windows makes you feel. Except in Minneapolis, we can only do that for about 3 weeks a year.
Like with the rest of your HVAC system, we will come out and survey your home and ask some simple questions like – do your windows fog in the winter? Does your indoor air seem stagnant or stale? Do you just want to breathe fresher air? Then we will recommend one of six different types of air exchangers.
Out with the old and in with the new – Air.
Renewaire’s EV Series Energy Recovery Ventilators are an ideal solution for year round fresh air. Unlike HRVs (heat recovery ventilators), Renewaire ERVs quietly work to reduce any wintertime humidity without over-drying. They also provide fresh air in the spring and summer months without adding humidity. A convenient run time control gives you the flexibility to choose how much air you exchange per hour, from 10 to 100%.
Renewaire’s BR Series Energy Recovery Ventilators are designed for tight-fit installations. Like the EV Series, the BR series air exchangers are an ideal solution for year round fresh air exchange. These ERVs also work to reduce winter humidity without over-drying and provide fresh air in the spring and summer months without adding humidity. These models also have a run time control that allows you to set an hourly exchange rate from 10-100%.
Bryant’s Ventilator Plus Heat Recovery Ventilators are designed for wintertime air exchange. They’re an awesome solution for relieving excess humidity without wasting energy spent heating your home. Codes now require new homes to be built tighter than ever. Humidity in our homes increase by showering, washing dishes, doing laundry, etc. If your house is air tight, the humid air has nowhere to go unless you replace it with fresh, dry outdoor air.
Living in Minneapolis, MN and surrounding areas, you probably rely on the heating system for approximately seven months out of the year. It doesn’t take long for the temperature to climb, making it necessary to switch over to cooling. The air conditioner is often in use for around four months. Whenever you’re heating or cooling the house, keeping it sealed tight is essential to energy efficiency and lower utility bills. So with only a couple of weeks in-between, what about ventilation?
