Indoor Air Quality
Heat and Energy Recovery Ventilator Systems in San Ramon, CA
The first thing that most people do when engaging their climate control systems is close all of their windows and doors. This is done in an effort to help insulate the home, making it easier to maintain climate control. However, this has an unintended consequence. Closing all of your windows and doors cuts off the flow of fresh air into the home. Spending a prolonged period of time without fresh air tends to cause the air in the home to dry out, which makes it easier for you to get sick. Airborne contaminants can also become trapped in the home, which can cause all sorts of negative health effects. Now, no one wants to open their windows and doors, losing climate control in the process, just to get some fresh air. Fortunately, you don’t have to. Comfy Heating & Air Conditioning Inc. offers a full range of heat and recovery ventilator systems throughout San Ramon, CA.

What are Heat and Energy Recovery Ventilators?
Heat recovery ventilators are essentially heat exchangers that are installed in your ducts. They also have a separate duct connecting them to the outside air. As air flows in from the outside, it flows through the heat exchanger at the same time as the inside air. The two airflows equalize each other’s temperature, which means that by the time the outside air reaches you it’s more or less the same temperature as the rest of the house. This allows you to keep receiving fresh air from outside, without giving up climate control. An energy recovery ventilator is essentially the same thing as a heat recovery ventilator, with the added bonus of transferring humidity at the same time.
The Benefits of Installing a Heat or Energy Recovery Ventilator
As mentioned above, maintaining fresh airflow throughout your home is important for keeping you healthy. Heat recovery ventilators (HRVs) and energy recovery ventilators (ERVs) are an ideal way to keep you healthy and comfortable at the same time. You should never have to sacrifice one in order to have the other. Depending on your individual situation, an HRV or ERV might be the perfect way to improve your indoor air quality.
We Install and Service Recovery Ventilators
Installing HRVs and ERVs are not easy. The system itself often doesn’t require power, but installing it in the ducts requires professional training and knowledge. If the system isn’t installed in just the right part of your ducts, you won’t garner maximum benefit from it. The additional duct connecting the system to the outside air will also likely require additional construction work, which should always be trusted to a professional. The same holds true for any repair and maintenance work that needs to be done. If you need an HRV or ERV installed or serviced, call Comfy Heating & Air Conditioning Inc. today. We offer a full range of services throughout San Ramon, CA. With our help, you can have fresh air and climate control at once.
