Busting Energy Recovery Ventilation (ERV) Myths with Building Performance Equipment, Inc.®
“Cross-contamination of airstreams is a big problem with ERVs.”
“Word on the street says ERVs, on average, are only 50% to 70% thermally efficient.”
“ERVs installations are difficult and complicated.”

It is the plight of professionals in most industries: You introduce your company to potential clients only to discover their perception of your product or concept has already been influenced by myths or outdated information.
It’s no different for the sales force at BPE when we explain energy

thermally conditioned air into homes and buildings. Therefore,
part of what we do involves educating folks so they don’t rule out
the very thing that can improve Indoor Air Quality (IAQ), promote
thermal comfort and lower heating and cooling bills.
