Why You Need an ERV System
If you are building a new home, you will need to install one of these systems because it’s the law. If you have an older home, you may choose to install one because the benefits appeal to you, because you prioritize indoor air quality, or because your doctor or health advisor has told you it might help you feel better.
The Benefits of an ERV System
ERV systems have a number of benefits, including:
- They remove bad smells and any air contaminants that go along with them
- They make your home more energy efficient so your utility bills are lower
- They help your HVAC equipment work better and last longer
- They help control the humidity inside your home so it doesn’t get too high or too low
When to Use an ERV System
If you have an ERV system, you can turn it on and leave it on. In fact, many systems simply work when your HVAC system works. Others have separate controls, so you can choose to use them whenever your indoor air quality gets bad.
The Average Cost of an ERV System
Most of the time ERV systems run $2000 or more. That’s for the system and the installation. We can’t quote an exact cost because different homes need different systems. We’ll work with you to make sure you get the specific solutions you need and that they are implemented quickly and efficiently.
