* Lingo Lesson

Energy recovery ventilation (ERV) is the process of exchanging the energy contained in normally exhausted building or space air and using it to precondition the incoming outdoor ventilation air in HVAC systems. During the warmer seasons, the system pre-cools and dehumidifies, while humidifying and pre-heating in the cooler seasons. This technology has not only demonstrated an effective means of reducing energy cost and heating and cooling loads, but has allowed for the scaling down of equipment. In our case, the ERV, which was funded in part by a CORE Grant, will help us achieve our energy-efficiency and LEED Gold goals.
