Improve your air, control your building’s moisture, and save on energy! All of this is possible with an energy recovery unit from SAM Mechanical. Energy recovery units or ventilators (ERV) are air recycling systems designed to be energy efficient. Buildings are designed to keep out the temperature extremes with a tight seal against the elements of the outdoors. While this seal is great to keep the outside out, it also means that fresh air and ventilation are lacking. Cooking, cleaning, and even breathing can cause a stuffy feeling building. While this doesn’t seem like an issue, the lack of ventilation can lead to a build-up of moisture. This moisture can cause mold growth or have impact on the structure itself. Having one installed in your building has many advantages.
With the proper installation of the energy recovery units in your building, you can expect improved air quality. When the summer heat arrives, the air conditioning is turned up and kept on for months on end. With that steady stream of cool air and the competing heat outside, there is no need to open windows. The lack of fresh air that moves throughout your building can have an impact on particles moving through your ventilation. Pollen, dust, and other allergens stay in your building being recycled over and over, making it difficult for those with asthma or allergies. Using an energy recovery unit will reduce the number of particles in your air by eliminating them through the ERV. Trust the experts at SAM Mechanical to install your ERV properly!
With proactive maintenance of your ERV, you can expect to save on energy costs. An energy recovery unit installation can recycle the air that has already been cycled through the system to save energy. Reusing this air reduces utility expenses and the wasted energy that has already been expended. Each month your bill will decrease by a couple hundred dollars with a new energy recovery unit. Accurate maintenance for your specific unit is crucial in energy savings and each unit requires different maintenance. SAM Mechanical has the technicians with the skills and knowledge needed to ensure your energy recovery unit is performing to its highest potential.
Energy recovery units are pertinent to a commercial building to keep the air quality up, control moisture, and lower energy bills. The other huge benefit of these systems is better moisture control. The moisture in your building will never fully disappear but there are ways to control it and prevent mold from taking hold, and compromising air quality and structure stability. ERVs will transfer the moisture from outdoor air to the exhaust stream of air leaving your building. This helps prevent humidity and moisture in your building and instead transfers it out. If your system needs repairs, the SAM Mechanical team is available 24/7 for emergency support to provide you the best service for your needs. The installation, service, or repair of a ERV can be taken care of by your local SAM Mechanical contractor. See how we can help you breathe easier.
