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?

Ventilate Your Home with an Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV) HVAC

Did you know that According to statistics by the U.S Environmental Protection Agency, the level of indoor pollution is normally five percent higher as compared to outdoor pollution?  There are many causes of indoor pollution that include human habitation processes such as cooking, cleaning, breathing and combustion. As such, ventilation is crucial to maintaining a healthy indoor air quality. Some homeowners opt to design houses which “self-ventilate.” However, this may not be the ideal solution due to uncontrollable climate conditions. A better solution, which has now and for many years been adopted by homeowners, is using Mechanically introduced fresh air. ERV (Energy Recovery Ventilator).

Why choose an Energy Recovery Ventilator HVAC?

Cost is a major concern when installing a Heating and Ventilation air Conditioning (HVAC) system. There are various options that can help cut cost, starting with the choice of HCAV and its maintenance. Although an Energy Recovery Ventilator HVAC system is expensive to install, it contributes highly to saving the overall reduction in energy consumption in the household. An ERV only uses electricity to run the fans.

According to energy regulations, nearly half of the global energy is used in buildings.  ERV works by exchanging the energy indoors and using it to treat the incoming outdoor ventilation air in the HVAC system. Using an ERV system saves your building against SBS (Sick Building Syndrome) that often results from poorly designed and installed ventilation systems.

Go green and save cost
Finding a way to compensate for cost is always a most welcomed idea for most people.  Geothermal power is natural, abundant and renewable. Using geothermal energy is the perfect solution to compensate for the extra charge that comes with Mechanically introduced fresh air. ERV (Energy Recovery Ventilator) installation.

This renewable energy will not only help you with heating and cooling your house but can also be used to heat water, significantly reducing the overall running costs of your home.

Much as ERV systems are the best for a modern home, improperly installed ones can be inefficient and ineffective.  To learn more about an ERV system most suitable for you, contact us.  We are specialists in installing, maintenance, and repairing HVAC systems
