Ottawa Indoor Air Quality for Your Home & Family

An Heat Recovery Ventilator (HRV) is a device that provides an efficient air exchange which uses the current indoor hot air to heat the cold outdoor fresh air being introduced into your home. In the winter months the HRV also acts as a dehumidifier, which helps reduce condensation buildup on windows and increases comfort. Including a Heat Recovery Ventilator as part of your mechanical ventilation in your home can significantly improve your indoor air quality.

An ERV has greater humidity control. Unlike the HRV, an ERV can be used year round to introduce fresh air into your home. ERV’s prevent hot, humid air from outside entering your home during the summer while still introducing fresh air into circulation.

At Advanced HVAC we are proud to provide Venmar heat recovery ventilators and energy recovery ventilators. Like with Heat Recovery Ventilators, Energy Recovery Ventilators can help improve your indoor air quality, helping keep your family healthy.
