Ventilation is one of the most important considerations for good indoor air quality.

A high-quality ventilation system such as an ERV or HRV from Zehnder America can help to ensure that air quality is optimized by continuously removing stale indoor air and replacing it with fresh air from outdoors.

The ERV or HRV balanced ventilation systems from Zehnder have a lot of advantages versus an exhaust only solution. By creating negative pressure, exhaust fans are replenishing the air by sucking in uncontrollably unfiltered, often humid and unconditioned air from the outside.

Benefits from good indoor air quality.

Fresh air promotes well-being, healthy sleep, concentration, and productivity. Draft-free air helps to prevent colds and is good for your health. Thanks to optional filters (High-efficiency particulate arrestance [HEPA} F7 / MERV13 or G4 / MERV7-8 filters), which capture fine dust and pollen, even allergy sufferers can breathe easily. An enthalpy heat exchanger for moisture recovery can prevent the air from getting too dry in winter.
