Novel Care installs and recommends ERV units and fans for customers because we care about indoor air quality, and the energy and cost savings you’ll realize.
ERV units, also known as Energy Recovery Ventilators, uses the heat from your indoor air and transfers it to the incoming fresh air throughout your home. In the winter the air being drawn in is typically very cold. ERV units warm this air up on its way into the house, which means you doesn’t have to use as much energy as before to heat up the air it distributes throughout your home. When your furnace doesn’t have to work as hard to heat up the air it burns less fuel, which saves energy and in turn money.
Over the past 40 years home construction has improved so much that homes are now built with airtight seals that let little air in or out. This is great for the efficiency of the house, but not so great for allowing fresh air in and out. As a result ERV units have become quite popular in Toronto, York Region, and the GTA because they warm up the cold air that’s drawn into these airtight homes. This allows families to enjoy fresh air without compromising the efficiency of their home.
