Aprilaire 8100 Energy Recovery Ventilator
The whole-home Aprilaire 8100 Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV) is among the most energy efficient methods of exchanging the air inside your home with fresh outdoor air.
Today’s homes are being built tighter for energy efficiency. Unfortunately, this also makes it nearly impossible for your home to expel stale, indoor air and replace it with fresh, cleaner outdoor air. As a result, unpleasant odors and harmful pollutants become trapped in your home.
The Aprilaire Model 8100 Energy Recovery Ventilator System (ERV):
- Provides a constant, controlled supply of fresh air to your home year-round.
- Features the exclusive EnergyMax® Transfer Core, which saves energy by effectively retaining and utilizing the energy value from your indoor air.
- Ventilates homes up to 4,500 square feet in size.
Enjoy Fresh Air Without Raising Heating and Cooling Costs
The Aprilaire Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV) exchanges stale, polluted indoor air with fresh, clean outdoor air throughout your entire home without wasting energy. It is installed as part of your central heating and cooling system, or as an independent system, by a local HVAC professional.
The heart of the ERV is the EnergyMax® Transfer Core, which uses enthalpic technology based on the second law of thermodynamics to enable the transfer of heat as well as moisture into and out of your home. This means:
In the summer, the ERV uses the stale, conditioned indoor air you’re expelling to cool the incoming hot air.
In the winter, the ERV uses the stale, heated indoor air you’re expelling to preheat the incoming cold air.
