ERV manages fresh airflowBuilder Luis Imery explains the function of the energy recovery ventilator (ERV) from Zehnder America in the Proud Green Home at Serenbe. The ERV recovers heat from the inside air before exchanging it for fresh outside air. That helps heat the home, reducing the load on the heating system and also removing moisture from the air. The Proud Green Home at Serenbe was built to be about 90 percent tighter than a standard code-built home, so ventilation is vital for comfort and performance of the home. See the pre drywall blower door test results. Read more about the Zehnder America ERV. Read more at the Proud Green Home at Serenbe Research Center.
