The lungs of the Passive House concept is an energy recovery ventilation system that provides year-round 100% fresh air for a healthy and comfortable indoor environment. These systems can be referred to as ERV – Energy Recovery Ventilators, or HRV – Heat Recovery Ventilators. When coupled with airtight, high insulation building envelopes, this has the symbiotic benefit of dramatic reductions in space heating and cooling requirements, while also providing for high comfort levels year-round. No more ‘too hot’ summers or ‘too cold’ winters in the space we live in.
