Fort Collins, CO Heat & Energy Recovery Ventilators

Modern buildings struggle to maintain the adequate ventilation required for great indoor air quality. Simply opening your windows is not always an ideal method of ventilation, however, particularly during the summer and winter months. You need to make sure that your existing indoor air not only recirculates throughout the space effectively, but also that your indoor air quality is refreshed in an efficient manner. We offer a number of different solutions for such issues, and we’ll customize one that suits your needs.

Heat and energy recovery ventilators are HVAC upgrades that integrate directly into your existing heating and air conditioning systems. They ensure that your entire living space is thoroughly ventilated, and without the efficiency pitfalls that come from opening up a window or door. Have a question? No problem. We can make sure that your energy or heat recovery ventilator is chosen carefully and integrated properly into the HVAC system as a whole. We also repair and maintain heat recovery and energy recovery ventilators.

Fort Collins Heating & Air Conditioning provides heat and energy recovery ventilator services to Fort Collins and the surrounding CO areas. Contact us today to learn more about your HVAC options.

How Do HRV & ERV Systems Work—And What’s the Difference?

A heat recovery ventilator exchanges heat between incoming and outgoing airstreams, using heat in the outgoing air to warm incoming air in the winter and transfer heat from incoming air to the outgoing air in the summer. This allows you to ventilate your home in the most energy efficient manner possible. When properly installed and serviced, an HRV can recover about 80% of the energy of your indoor air, and the HRV is particularly suitable to our winters.

We also install and service energy recovery ventilators, which work similarly. An ERV, however, also transfers humidity between the incoming and outgoing airstreams. These devices, however, are typically used in areas with hot and humid weather, which does not quite fit our climate here in the Fort Collins area. Because of this, we tend to suggest the use of an HRV rather than an ERV to our customers.

Why Whole–House Ventilation Is So Important

Today’s homes and commercial buildings are built for energy efficiency. That means the entire building envelope is well–insulated and tightly sealed in order to avoid heat loss during the winter and heat gain during the summer. You need to make sure that you have what you need in terms of ventilation so you can achieve pleasant and healthy indoor air quality throughout your home or work space.

Whether you are an allergy sufferer, have a persistent respiratory issue, or just want to breathe cleaner air inside your own home, ventilation is of critical importance. The Environmental Protection Agency lists poor indoor air quality as a leading health risk throughout the country, and a heat or energy recovery ventilator can help you to boost indoor air quality while keeping your monthly energy expenses low.
