Staying indoors during the winter (which you’ll be doing even more than normal this year) can get stuffy and unpleasant. You’d love to enjoy some nice, fresh air, but you know that opening up the windows to bring in that fresh air means bringing in the cold. The heater will then need to work extra time trying to get the house warm again. You end up with some fresh air, but also a chilly household and higher energy bills.
Well, whaddya gonna do?
Actually, there is something you can do! There are ways you can have the fresh air you crave, helping to exhaust the stuffy, stale air in your house outdoors but also avoid giving your heater and your pocketbook extra grief. The secret is in these three letters: ERV. No, not an emergency response vehicle. Not an estimated rental value. Not even an English Revised Version. It’s an energy recovery ventilator and it can work a special kind of magic for your home.
