ERV/HRV systems offer a balanced approach to fresh air, maximum energy efficiency and additional benefits like humidity control. HRV systems are recommended for colder climates and ERV systems are recommended for hot, humid climates. Both are integrated into the ductwork of the forced hot air system—new or retrofit—and both work 24/7 to ensure fresh air changes up to eight times per day.
The unique dual-stream airflow design of Field Controls’ HRV keeps outgoing stale air separate from incoming fresh air and completely rejuvenates the air throughout your entire home up to eight times a day.
Our balanced ventilation technology replaces indoor stale air with an identical amount of fresh air, keeping the home pressure-neutral. This balanced ventilation is also critical to prevent moisture build-up during the heating season which can lead to expensive rot damage and hazardous mold.
The Field Controls HRV features a patented aluminum core which efficiently transfers heat from outgoing stale air to incoming fresh air. Our HRV 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.
Because of the unique ability of an HRV to transfer the temperature of indoor stale air to the incoming fresh air, you’ll realize lower heating and cooling costs year round while enjoying all the benefits superior indoor air quality delivers. In fact, the efficiency of the Field Controls HRV is so great that virtually none of the warmth collected from your home in winter is lost to the outside. In summer, the HRV works in reverse by removing heat from the incoming air and transferring it to the outgoing air keeping your home clean and fresh.
Nearly 90% of the energy used to cool a home is required to remove humidity. With an ERV, humidity is removed from the air before it is brought into the home – greatly reducing cooling costs. The Field Controls ERV uses membrane technology to transfer moisture and energy and our new, water-washable core is constructed with a non-cellulose material that will not deteriorate with moisture.
Fresh outdoor air is drawn into the HRV/ERV. The air is tempered (heated or cooled) as it passes through the core. Humidity is removed in ERV units. The tempered air is then distributed throughout the house via the HVAC ductwork. Stale air is circulated back to the HRV/ERV. As it passes through the unit, the heat/cool is extracted from the air and is used to temper the incoming air. The stale air is expelled outside. The system is 100% balanced. It expels the identical amount of air that is drawn into the home. Fresh air is cycled through the entire home up to 8 times per day.
