Lennox® Ventilation

Current homes are constructed with efficiency in mind. But that also means they’re strongly sealed and can have stale air without much movement.

With proper ventilation, your home can bypass mildew, allergen increases and other air quality issues. Good ventilation also helps remove intense odors, like kitchen smells or tobacco smoke.

While cracking a window can make a difference at times, it can’t be used in all weather. It can also be problematic if anyone in your home has allergies.

Lennox® home ventilation systems in Greater Richmond, Virginia, give you an energy-efficient solution: swapping flat indoor air with fresh outdoor air. They’re created to operate with any HVAC system. Plus, they don’t produce any ozone, a toxic gas that can irritate your lungs.

Herman Allen Plumbing, Heating & Cooling can help you single out the proper system for your home and the local weather. Give our heating and cooling pros a buzz at 804-302-6657 to start experiencing fresher air today.

Categories of Ventilation Systems

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

Both are best for new homes or recently updated homes with energy improvements, but are designed with many climates in mind.

Places with a large assortment of weather patterns, such as the Midwest, can find value from both systems. Contact us for additional information about which option is the best fit for Greater Richmond.

Heat Recovery Ventilation

HRV operates best in chillier climates. It pushes out air from your house, swapping out fresh air from around your home.

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

Energy Recovery Ventilation

ERV is a good fit for warm, humid environments. It takes the heat and moisture out of your space’s air and pushes it out of your home. This lets you hold proper humidity levels in your space. Balanced humidity can keep your space more comfortable and allow you to use your air conditioning less frequently—saving you more money on cooling charges.
