Forsyth County, GA Heat & Energy Recovery Ventilators
At DC Cheek Heating, Cooling & Plumbing, we believe that there is no excuse for mediocrity! We also believe you shouldn’t have to settle for mediocre indoor air quality. However, if you aren’t taking advantage of either an ERV system or HRV system, that may be just what you’re doing. Energy recovery and heat recovery ventilators are indoor air quality products that solve the “stale air” problem we can have in both winter and summertime.
During the winter and summer, we keep our windows and doors closed to keep conditioned air in. This helps our HVAC efficiency, but even though we’re more comfortable, there’s still one air quality problem to contend with: stale air. An ERV or HRV system allows you to bring in fresh air without opening windows and doors and wasting energy as a result. Contact our team today to get started!

ERV and HRV Solutions in North Georgia
Heat and energy recovery ventilators by nature are mechanical ventilators, but with a twist—they also serve as heat exchangers. This allows them to transfer heat between air streams, bringing fresh air into your home while also cooling or heating your living space. This allows you to feel as comfortable as possible without wasting any energy.
For instance, let’s say it’s a sweltering hot day here along the North 400 Corridor but after running your air conditioner for so long it begins to feel stale. You could open the windows or doors to let fresh air in, but this wouldn’t make sense, as you’d just warm the house right back up. The ERV or HRV brings fresh air into your home and pre-cools it in the process, to bring you optimal home comfort and indoor air quality.
Should You Choose Heat Recovery or Energy Recovery?
These systems are the same in many ways, in that they both bring you better ventilation. So, how do you choose between an HRV system or an ERV system for your house? Well it helps to know the main difference between the two—an ERV system transfers moisture during the heat exchange process, in addition to heat. If you’re trying to combat humidity, an ERV can definitely be the way to go.
HRV systems are absolutely effective, but they don’t transfer moisture as well. So while it’s dependent on where exactly along the North 400 Corridor your home is, an ERV might be the better option for you. The best thing for you to do is contact a pro to help you make an educated decision.
