Heat and Energy Recovery Ventilators in Killeen, TX
New homes are built with efficiency in mind, and for home builders, this means sealing them up as tightly as possible. Sure, this does wonders for your heating and cooling efficiency, however, it can seriously impact your indoor air quality, as tight sealing can seriously limit the amount of natural ventilation in the house. For this reason, it is important that homeowners have the proper ventilation systems in place, specifically heat recovery and energy recovery ventilators.

What Are Heat and Energy Recovery Ventilators?
HRVs and ERVs are essentially mechanical ventilators, but with a twist: the heat exchanger. This allows them to transfer heat between air streams, allowing for proper ventilation without sacrificing efficiency.
To put it simply, during the summer, the HRV or ERV will transfer heat from the fresh, but warm incoming air to the stale, but cool outgoing air. This precools the incoming air so that your AC doesn’t have to work quite as hard. The reverse applies in the winter, as the system prewarms the incoming air, taking much of the burden off your heater.
What’s the Difference Between an HRV or an ERV?
HRV systems and ERV systems work similarly to each other in terms of temperature regulation. The major difference between these two systems is that an ERV, unlike an HRV, can transfer humidity in addition to heat.
There are a number of factors that will help determine which system is going to best meet your home’s specific ventilation needs. Factors including insulation and overall home efficiency will influence the decision, so it is important to have our team first assess your home before any final decisions are made.
Professional Installation Matters
Like any whole-house indoor air quality or HVAC system, your ERV system or HRV system is going to require professional installation. Professional installation ensures that your new system is set up to give you the comfort and efficiency that you deserve. We want to make sure that your heat or energy recovery ventilator is properly integrated with your existing HVAC system, and the only way to do that is to hire an expert to install the system.
In addition to installation, your system is going to require prompt repairs and annual maintenance to keep it running efficiently for years to come. Fortunately, Alltek Services offers these comprehensive services for homeowners in Killeen, TX and the surrounding communities. So, be sure to contact us today to get started!
