Today’s tightly sealed homes make it easier to stay comfortable, but they can also trap pollutants indoors. In fact, indoor air in the average Florida home is typically more polluted than the air outside. Energy recovery ventilators offer you an effective way to improve the air quality in your home while minimizing energy expenses. As their name indicates, these ventilation systems recover the energy lost in exiting air to bring fresh air into your Fort Myers, FL home.

How Energy Recovery Ventilators Work

Working with your existing ductwork system, an energy recovery ventilator exchanges stale indoor air for an equal amount of outdoor air. The use of a heat exchanger is what differentiates it from other types of ventilation systems. This device captures up to 80 percent of the energy in the outgoing air to pre-condition the incoming air. It’s an energy-efficient system that lets you enjoy healthier indoor air while keeping energy bills manageable.

Indoor Air Quality Benefits

Clean, healthy indoor air is critical for anyone with allergies, asthma or other respiratory conditions. Long-term exposure to indoor pollutants impacts otherwise healthy people too. By exhausting stale air and introducing fresh air, energy recovery ventilators let everyone breathe a sigh of relief. They can also improve your comfort in every season. Models like Trane’s Fresh Effects ventilator dehumidify air in the summer and retain heat and moisture in the winter for year-round comfort.

Whole-House Ventilation

An energy recovery system offers you a controlled way to ventilate your entire home. They’re particularly effective in hot and humid climates like Florida. They balance humidity levels, pre-filter incoming air to reduce pollutants and are engineered for quiet operation.
