What's the difference between HRVs and ERVs?
Enhancing indoor air quality and minimizing heating costs, both heat recovery ventilators (HRVs) and energy recovery ventilators (ERVs) utilize fans to maintain balanced airflow in a space, while exhausting and recovering energy from stale indoor air.
So, what is the difference between an HRV vs. an ERV?
- An HRV transfers heat
- An ERV transfers both heat and moisture
The Field Controls HRV systems are ruggedly engineered with a patented aluminum core and unique dual-stream airflow design that:
- Keeps outgoing stale air separate from incoming fresh air
- Efficiently transfers heat from outgoing stale air to incoming fresh air
- Completely rejuvenates the air throughout an entire home up to eight times a day
- Lets you enjoy an energy efficient home without breathing harmful indoor fumes from paint, plastics, carpets, adhesives, and household products, or lingering pet odors or moisture that causes mold

Recommended for colder, northern climates, Field Controls’ HRVs channel heat from inside the home, then conveys it to incoming fresh air from outside, improving comfort while managing condensation.
Ensuring energy efficiency with optimal effectiveness, our HRV lineup:
- Includes six models that range from 40 cfm to 250 cfm, with four models that feature the DuoTrol™ balancing system for light commercial applications
- Boast high performance motors that range from 550 to 1,200 cfm.
- Meet or exceed ventilation standard ASHRAE 62.2
Ventilation Installation Made Easy
