What is the difference between HRV and ERV?
While there are some interesting nuances to each type, the general differences are somewhat small. Essentially HRV is Heat Recovery Ventilation and ERV is Energy Recovery Ventilation. Typically ERV systems are used in warmer climates to remove moisture from incoming air to keep humidity down. While it’s not a dehumidifier, it will aid the whole home humidity control system by not constantly bombarding the system with new moisture. HRV systems capture about 70 percent of the energy expended to temper incoming air but do not actively impact moisture levels.
The choice of which best suits your needs would best be discussed with a technician in the field as their very design is dependant determining typical mean outside air conditions. Click here to set up an in-home consultation.
