THE FUTURE OF FRESH AIR

It’s a fact: Today’s homes are so well insulated that they trap humidity and pollutants indoors. Result: Over 50% of homes show visible signs of humidity. However, it is possible to breathe fresh air inside as if you were outside and fully enjoy your home.

According to specialists, central ventilation and filtration effectively eliminate airborne pollutants and excess humidity, thereby protecting your family’s health and the structure of your house.

Ventilation is a necessity. But what is the most cost effective way to ventilate while retaining the energy used for heating and cooling? Broan offers a wide range of air exchangers with Heat Recovery (HRV) and Energy Recovery (ERV) technologies. These technologies help to minimize loss of heat or coolness as follows: The HRVs transfer heat from exhaust air expelled from the house to the fresh air entering the house, without mixing the stale air and the fresh air. In addition to this feature, the ERVs limit the amount of moisture entering the house (ideal for humid climates).

WHEN DO YOU WANT FRESH AIR IN YOUR HOME?

We want fresh air always and in every room of our homes, of course. Broan fresh air systems are the centerpiece of today’s tightly constructed, energy-efficient homes, providing a continuous supply of fresh air to improve indoor air quality and overall home comfort.

FRESH AIR WHEREVER YOU LIVE™

Most essential to providing fresh air to your home is properly managing incoming and outgoing air for your climate conditions, seasons, temperature and humidity levels. If not managed efficiently, indoor air quality, energy bills and overall home comfort can suffer. All Broan Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERVs) and Heat Recovery Ventilators (HRVs) feature exclusive Venmar® Core Technology engineered for all seasons and climate conditions. These fresh air systems exchange stale indoor air and pollutants for fresh, filtered air from outside, and Venmar® Core Technology efficiently manages the air exchange to maintain comfortable temperature and humidity levels. The result—fresh air and improved home comfort wherever you live.

IF MANAGING HUMIDITY AND TEMPERATURE IS MOST ESSENTIAL WHEREVER YOU LIVE

Broan ERVs with Venmar® Core Technology limit the humidity entering and exiting the home to maintain comfortable relative humidity (RH) levels; and these fresh air systems inhibit extreme air temperatures from entering the home to maintain comfortable indoor air temperatures.

IF MANAGING TEMPERATURE IS MOST ESSENTIAL WHEREVER YOU LIVE

Broan HRVs and ERVs with Venmar® Core Technology inhibit extreme air temperatures from entering the home to maintain comfortable indoor air temperatures.

Moisture

Moisture

Daily activities such as showering or washing dishes release moisture into the air. Over time, if this moisture cannot be evacuated, its accumulation will cause mold build up, unpleasant odors and costly damages to the house structure often in hidden places. When discovered, it is already too late.
