Lennox® Ventilation

Present-day residences are constructed with efficiency top of mind. But that also means they’re solidly sealed and can be a bit stifling.

With the right ventilation, your home can avoid mildew, allergen buildup and other air quality problems. Efficient ventilation also lets you get rid of strong odors, like cooking smells or tobacco smoke.

While cracking a window can air things out for a bit, it doesn’t work in every season. It can also be difficult if an individual in your home deals with allergies.

Lennox® home ventilation systems in Des Moines, Iowa, offer an energy-efficient option: replacing stuffy indoor air with renewed outdoor air. They’re crafted to match with any heating and cooling system. Plus, they don’t create any ozone, a toxic gas that can hurt your lungs.

Heartland Heating & Cooling can help you select the correct fit for your home and the local climate. Give our heating and cooling technicians a ring at 515-344-3579 to start taking in fresher air today.

Classes of Ventilation Systems

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

Each one is ideal for new homes or remodeled homes with energy enhancements, but are constructed with a variety of climates in mind.

Environments with a wide variety of weather patterns, like the Midwest, can find value from either system. Contact us for extra information about which option is best for Des Moines.

Heat Recovery Ventilation

HRV functions best in cold climates. It pushes out air from your home, switching it out for fresh air from the outdoors.

As an energy-efficient benefit, it maintains the heat from your indoor air. That way, you won’t have to pay to heat fresh (but colder) air from around your home.

Energy Recovery Ventilation

ERV is best for warm, humid climates. It draws the heat and moisture out of your space’s air and leaves it outdoors. This allows you to maintain proper humidity levels in your rooms. Well-adjusted humidity can keep your house more comfortable and help you use your air conditioning less—saving you more money on cooling expenses.
