Energy Recovery Ventilator Systems Research

An energy recovery ventilator (ERV) is a type of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment that uses the energy associated with the thermally conditioned air being exhausted from a building to precondition the incoming air. ERVs, which offer many advantages for both improved indoor air quality (IAQ) and reduced energy consumption, are one of the fastest-growing segments of improved IAQ management in buildings. Click to tweet: According to a recent report from Navigant Research, worldwide revenue from ERVs will…
