Indoor Air Quality
Heat and Energy Recovery Ventilators in Plano, TX
At Aire Texas Residential Services, Inc, education is the platform of our business. We educate our employees so they can educate our customers as best as possible.
This means that when our Diagnostic Engineers or Installation Specialists come to your home for service, we take a comprehensive approach. We look at the home comfort systems you have currently in place and let you know how they’re serving you, and make recommendations for products and services that will further benefit your home comfort.
This includes products that will improve your indoor air quality, such as a heat recovery ventilator (HRV) or energy recovery ventilator (ERV), both of which introduce fresh air into your home even when it’s sealed up tight to maintain HVAC efficiency.

The Power of ERV and HRV Systems
In simple terms, ERV and HRV systems are mechanical ventilators. But they also serve as heat exchangers. Why does this matter?
During the summer—and winter—we close all our windows and doors so that we can keep the conditioned air from our HVAC systems in. This makes sense, though it doesn’t allow for much fresh air in your home.
Running your air conditioner on a sweltering North Central Texas day can leave the air feeling stale, and yet opening a window defeats the purpose of using a cooling system at all.
ERV and HRV systems transfer heat between air streams, which allow them to bring in fresh air while still allowing your HVAC systems to effectively do their job.
The Difference Between Energy Recovery and Heat Recovery
Both the ERV and HRV systems bring you better ventilation. So, how do you choose between the two?
- The ERV system transfers moisture during the heat exchange process, in addition to heat. An ERV is an effective method to combat humidity—though it does not necessarily serve as a replacement to a whole-house dehumidifier if you already have one of those in place.
- The HRV system does not transfer moisture as well, but is very effective at transferring heat in order to provide your household with fresh air no matter the time of year.
The system you choose will depend on a number of factors, including what is already in your home. This is something we specialize in—looking at the whole home and determining how your systems will best work with one another.
