Heat and Energy Recovery Ventilators in Denver, CO

At Apple Aire, we believe in providing the highest level of customer service, backed by our complete customer satisfaction guarantee. This is true whether we’re installing a new HVAC system for you, or ensuring your indoor air quality is at an optimal level. One type of system that can help with the latter is the heat recover ventilator (HRV) or energy recovery ventilator (HRV).

No matter what time of the year it is, our windows and doors are typically closed, right? We want to keep our cooled air inside during the summer, and keep our Denver Metro area homes heated in the wintertime. Following this practice helps HVAC efficiency, but stale air then becomes a problem. Fortunately, this can be resolved with an ERV system or HRV system installation, which allows you to get fresh air without wasting any energy.

Your ERV and HRV Solutions

By the nature of their setup, heat and energy recovery ventilators are mechanical ventilators—but they have a twist. They also serve as heat exchangers. This enables them to transfer heat between two air streams—bringing fresh air into your home while also heating or cooling your Denver home. This enables you and your family to feel as comfortable as possible but without wasting any energy.

With the wild and sometimes unexpected weather swings we have in our area, you could be running your heater one day and turning your AC back on the next—with the house sealed up and not allowing any fresh air in, your home may soon feel stale. But an ERV or HRV system brings fresh air into the home without the need to open any windows or doors and hurt your HVAC efficiency.

Do You Need a Heat Recovery or Energy Recovery System?

One of the most common questions our Tru Tech-certified technicians get is, "what’s the difference between an HRV and an ERV system?" This is a great question—there aren’t many differences! So, how do you make the choice between the two?

An ERV system transfers moisture during the heat exchange process. If you’re trying to relieve humidity, an ERV can certainly be the way to go. HRV systems are effective to, of course, but they do not transfer moisture as well. It will depend on where in the Denver Metro or Foothills communities you are, but if you’re without a whole-house dehumidifier, you may want to consider the ERV over the HRV system.
