One of the best perks of living in The Villages, Florida, is that the area’s new homes tend to have tight building envelopes, which encourages superior energy efficiency. While a more efficient home can save you money on your utility bill and help your HVAC system last longer, a tight building envelope can cause air quality problems. If you’ve noticed stale air building up indoors, consider investing in an energy recovery ventilator (ERV) to take your home to the next level.
Freshen the Air
When you inhale hot, stale air day after day, you might be tempted to throw open a window and let in some fresh air. While that might help for a moment, it won’t help your home overcome its stale air problems for the long term.
Instead, the Sun Kool team recommends freshening the air with an ERV. Models like the Performance ERV are designed to cycle old air out while drawing in fresh air. Since this device connects to your HVAC system, your home will have a constant supply of fresh air in every room.
If there’s one thing Florida homeowners know, it’s humidity. Keeping indoor moisture levels moderate isn’t always easy, but an ERV can help with that, too. These devices are made to remove some of the moisture from incoming air before your HVAC system cycles cool air through your home, keeping your family perfectly comfortable.
Boost HVAC Performance
In addition to keeping you cool and giving your home’s air quality a boost, an ERV can also help your HVAC system perform better. Since an ERV pre-conditions the incoming air and pre-filters out airborne contaminants, your HVAC system won’t have to work nearly as hard. That means you could benefit from a more efficient system and lower utility bills, too.
