Additional Information and Specifications: “ConsERV™ Brings Fresh Air Into Your Home – Without The Hassles. Opening the windows and doors of your home is a great way to bring in fresh air and wash out the stale, recirculated air. But, that can present a long list of problems: bad weather conditions, uncomfortable temperatures, security risks, humidity, pollen, dust or pests and noise. With the ConsERV system on, it is like being able to keep your windows and doors open, flowing a continuous stream of filtered fresh air every hour of the day, but without the hassle.
Lower Energy Bills – Lower Carbon Footprint
A home with recirculated, stuffy air requires you to lower the temperature to make it “”feel”” comfortable. When you introduce filtered fresh air regularly, you can raise your thermostat 4-6 degrees and have the same level of comfort. U.S. Department of Energy studies show ConsERV can save you 12 percent to 15 percent on cooling or heating costs every month, as well as reduce the carbon footprint of your home. These benefits are huge to you and the environment.
Indoor Air Pollution & Chemicals
The U.S. EPA says indoor pollution is two to three times higher than outdoor pollution! This toxic indoor living environment is contributing to chronic health problems. This is especially critical to pregnant women, babies, children, the sick and elderly. While ConsERV can’t cure these illnesses, it can reduce the conditions which trigger them.
How does the ERV work?
The enthalpic core at the center of the unit transfers heat and moisture from the incoming air to the outgoing air. The air brought into the living area is cooled and the humidity is reduced for maximum comfort. The load on your air conditioner is less, and you save on cooling costs.
Smells and musty odors, conditions fostering mold, excess humidity, tobacco smoke, cooking odors, offgassing from carpets, paints, and other construction materials.
Why use an ERV?
Reduces energy costs and CO2 emissions. Excellent return on investment.
Saves capital costs. Reduces required AC size and load.
No moving parts. A continuous stream of incoming fresh air is created using exhaust air.
Low maintenance. Simple periodic filter cleaning and replacement is all that is required.
Improves Indoor Air Quality. An EPA study shows an ERV lowers triggers for allergies, asthma & mold.
No condensation pan. Air is treated in its vapor state before it has a chance to create damp conditions that encourage mold and mildew.
An ERV is required by code in many states (ASHRAE & IBC).
Qualifies for local Utility rebates in many areas.
Qualifies for LEED points.”
