Out With the Old Air, in With the New Air

When we breathe in, we expect clean, healthy air. The air inside your home should help you breathe easy. That’s where heat recovery ventilators (HRV) and energy recovery ventilators (ERV) come in.

Get a breath of fresh air in your home and reduce your exposure to lingering dust, volatile organic compounds, and other pollutants.

What Are HRV & ERV?

Both HRV and ERV systems help to maintain healthy air in your home by transferring out old air, and filtering in new, fresh air. The comfort advisors at Cross Heating & Air Conditioning can help you choose based on your lifestyle and home needs.

The main difference between the 2 types is: HRV transfers heat and ERV transfers heat and moisture.


The HRV system removes old air from your home, passing it through the HRV and warming the plates of the heat exchanger. After this, it introduces fresh outdoor air into your home, which passes through the HRV and is warmed by the heat stored in the plates of the heat exchanger.

The ERV system works very similarly to HRV, forcing old air out of your home, passing it through the system and warming plates of a heat exchanger. Then, it brings fresh air in, passing it through the system, warmed by the heat stored in the plates of the exchanger.

While the ERV does this, it transfers some of the moisture from the outgoing air into the incoming air to help regulate the humidity levels in your home.
