As more homes are built and renovated with energy conservation in mind, they are more air-tight, and the need for balanced mechanical ventilation is even more obvious.
For over 50 years, Custom Vac Ltd has redefined ventilation by combining innovative technology, expertise and quality installations to offer the most extensive lines of heat and energy recovery ventilators available.
Which type of ventilator is right for me? HRV or ERV?
Heat Recovery Ventilator (HRV)
In colder climates where heating is essential, the heat recovery ventilator (HRV) is the best choice. The HRV keeps your home supplied with a steady flow of fresh outdoor air. As stale warm air is expelled, the heat recovery core warms the incoming fresh , colder air before it is distrubeted throughout your home.
Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV)
ERV’s are suited to all climates including those with hot humid summers, where homes are air-conditioned and possibly dehumidified during large parts of the year. In dry climates and humidified homes, when the humidity level is reversed, the EVR limits the amount of moisture expelled from your home.
