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?

When your home is sealed up and insulated really well, it keeps the heat in during the winter and the heat out during the summer. This is a great thing, but with every good thing some times comes a negative. Being too closed up can make it stuffy due to the lack of air flow throughout the home or business. The more fresh air the healthier the environment in the building is.

An ERV ( Energy Recovery Ventilator) is built and designed to recover the pre-conditioned air before it is ever removed from your home or building. The Mechanically introduced fresh air. ERV can help allow adequate amounts of fresh air into your home. It also conserves energy, by passing the outgoing air from indoors through a heat exchanger which causes less strain on your heating and cooling system, while allowing the fresh air into the house

ERV’s are a cost effective way to reduce energy consumption without taking away from the indoor environment quality. There are four different types of ERV’s.
