Tampa Energy Recovery Ventilators
When you’re trying to put together the perfect home comfort system in the Tampa, FL area, you have a lot of elements to take into consideration. For one thing, you want to make sure you have a top of the line heating and cooling system in place to provide for year round temperature control. Of course, that also means that you don’t want to have any cracks or gaps present that your heated or cooled air could escape through.
After all, you’re paying to heat and cool that air, and the more that finds its way out of your home, the more you’ll have to pay to keep the temperature constant. However, with modern homes sealed up so tightly to keep in temperature-controlled air, proper ventilation becomes a problem. An energy recovery ventilator (ERV) can be used to remedy this problem.
The Importance of Proper Ventilation
You need to find a way to allow for a constant influx of fresh air if you want to maintain a healthy indoor environment. There are all kinds of contaminants that can build up in your indoor air, and while air cleaners and purifiers can get rid of many of them, there’s nothing better than fresh air circulating throughout your house.
Without this ventilation, your indoor air cleaner can quickly be overwhelmed by the sheer volume of pollutants in your indoor air. Also, air that continues to circulate repeatedly through your house will become stale after a while and you simply won’t be able to maintain a comfortable indoor environment.

Lose Stale Air, Not Energy
So you can see why putting in vents is important, but doesn’t that pretty much negate all the hard work that went into making your house airtight to begin with? In theory it could, but with the right kinds of vents, it doesn’t have to.
Energy recovery ventilators are the best solution to this problem and they can both bring in a consistent flow of fresh air to your home while minimizing energy loss in the process. They do this by transferring energy and heat from one stream of air to the other, as the fresh air comes in and the old air goes out. Depending on the season, this could go one way or the other.
For instance, in the winter, your energy recovery ventilator will take heat from the air exiting your house and transfer it to the fresh air coming in. That way, the energy you used to heat the air being expelled isn’t wasted and you don’t have to expend even more to heat the new air coming in. In the summer, of course, the process is reversed, with the heat being removed from the air coming in and passed to the exiting air, so that it is taken back outside.
