Lennox® Ventilation

Modern houses are made with efficiency top of mind. But that also means they’re tightly sealed and can feel stuffy.

With correct ventilation, your house can avoid mildew, allergen buildup and related air quality issues. Good ventilation also allows you to air out severe scents, like cooking smells or tobacco smoke.

While opening a window can be of assistance for a bit, it can’t be used all year. It can also be almost useless if a household member has allergies.

Lennox® home ventilation systems in San Jose, California, have an energy-efficient fix: replacing stuffy indoor air with new outdoor air. They’re created to match with any home comfort system. Plus, they don’t generate any ozone, a toxic gas that can inflame your lungs.

American HVAC Inc can help you determine the proper option for your family and the local weather. Give our heating and cooling specialists a call at 408-215-1018 to start experiencing fresher air now.

Types of Ventilation Systems

There are two categories of ventilation systems—heat recovery ventilation (HRV) and energy recovery ventilation (ERV).

Either is perfect for modern homes or recently updated homes with energy upgrades, but are designed with a variety of climates in mind.

Places with a wide assortment of weather patterns, like the Midwest, can find advantages from each system. Contact us for additional information about which type is better for San Jose.

Heat Recovery Ventilation

HRV works best in cold climates. It expels air from your space, replacing it with fresh air from the outdoors.

As an energy-efficient option, it holds on to the heat from your indoor air. That way, you shouldn’t have to pay to warm fresh (but colder) air from around your home.

Energy Recovery Ventilation

ERV is best for warm, humid places. It sucks the heat and moisture out of your space’s air and shoves it outdoors. This lets you maintain proper humidity levels in your rooms. Balanced humidity can keep your house more comfortable and help you use your air conditioning less—saving you more money on cooling charges.
