Residential ventilation may occur naturally or mechanically, but specific mechanical systems must maintain indoor air quality levels in airtight houses. There are broadly two types of ventilators available for your home.


Heat Recovery Ventilators (HRV) transfers heat to condition incoming air. It is ideal for northern climates with a more extended cold-weather season, where excess moisture can be a problem.


Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERV) transfers both heat and moisture. It is suitable for warmer climates.

How Does HRV Work?

Heat Recovery Ventilators (HRV) improve indoor air quality by blowing out the old air and bringing fresh air inside your home in an energy-efficient way. It does not require any external furnace or air conditioning for it to function. An HRV functions in the following way:

  • The old stale air from your house is made to pass through the HRV. The previously stored heat warms the plates of the heat exchanger.
  • As soon as the plates get heated up, the HRV introduces clean and fresh outdoor air inside your home.
  • The process is repeated cyclically, ensuring the pollutants get evacuated from your home and you are provided with fresh air all the time.

How Does ERV Work?

Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERV) transfer heat/cooling energy and water vapour to provide healthy air. It improves energy efficiency and increases cost savings while maintaining a consistent indoor temperature and circulating fresh air throughout your home. An ERV works on a similar principle as that of HRV. Still, it includes an added step of transferring moisture from the outgoing air into the incoming clean, fresh air to maintain the humidity in your home at a constant level. Our energy recovery ventilators also remove excess humidity to enhance comfort and efficiency.

Why Do You Need Home Ventilation?

Old homes with broken windows or that develop cracks over time might enable natural ventilation, but it compromises the temperature, humidity and energy costs. You need a home recovery ventilation system to keep the people living inside your home healthy. There are certain benefits of home ventilation systems:

  • Welcomes healthy and fresh air inside your home.
  • Removes the pollutants and irritants like carbon monoxide, volatile organic compounds present in your home, dust, mould and pet dander away from your home.
  • A cost-effective way of reducing energy consumption.
  • Maintain a constant temperature in your home.
