Is your air conditioner struggling to cool your home? According to Energy Star – a U.S Environmental Protection Agency voluntary program, most modern HVAC systems or air conditioners are built to last an average of 15 years, completely dependent on make & model, as well as your climate, how often you run the system, and how often your air conditioner is maintained.

Your air conditioner is something most of us take for granted, and never really give any consideration to until it breaks down & leaves us vulnerable to the elements. When this happens, you’ll rush to find an HVAC company to come to your home, and hope they provide a quick & easy fix. However, sometimes these “quick & easy fixes” can’t actually be completed easily, quickly, or even cheaply.

When this happens, you have a pretty big decision to make: repair or replace your existing air conditioner system? How can you know what the best decision is for you, your home, & your wallet?

The Benefits of an ERV (Energy Recovery Ventilator)


Since 1968, residents of the Northwest Arkansas region have had access to an HVAC innovator and industry leader. Paschal Heat, Air & Geothermal has a proven track record of success by relying on top names in manufactured HVAC products. This ensures customers of highest value and excellent customer service by trained technicians.

One popular product Paschal offers is an ERV (Energy Recovery Ventilator). This product finds greatest use throughout the Springdale and Northwest Arkansas region, because the equipment takes air exhausted within structures, and “recovers” it as part of pre-conditional treatment for air entering HVAC systems. The result is greater indoor air quality in homes and buildings. It’s easy to see the advantage of installing an ERV (Energy Recovery Ventilator) is cost-effective ventilation.

Indoor Air Quality and Your ERV

Part of heating and cooling homes and buildings requires taking air into and releasing it from the system. However, one element of the process that is also significant is the ventilation process. Heating and cooling systems operate on various types of fuels, such as natural gas, electric and oil. When air passes through ventilation ducts, the quality of that air should be sufficient enough to maintain good health for building occupants. Through mechanically introduced air, this is where the installation of an ERV aids in the ventilation process.

Indoor air quality is a major issue in buildings with high occupancy. Poor air quality in high occupancy buildings nearly always encourage the growth of mold and mildew, which are the prime causes of illness and lung ailments. An energy recovery ventilator reduces the potential for illnesses through a comprehensive process of air recovery and treatment.

Types of ERVs

There are several types of ERVs. These include:

. Fixed Plate
. Heat Pipe
. Run around coil
. Thermosiphon
. Rotary enthalpy wheel

Consult with your Paschal Heat, Air & Geothermal professionals to determine which ERV is best suited for the size and area that requires mechanically introduced fresh air for greater indoor air quality. With the humidity levels typical of Arkansas, residents can enjoy fresher, cleaner air with lower humidity indoors.

Breathe Easier Indoors with an ERV
