Ventilation – Good Air In, Bad Air Out!


Fresh Air All The Time

Ventilating a home by opening doors and windows may not always be feasible due to security reasons or outdoor noise levels, rain, snow or weather conditions.

Mechanical ventilation allows a quiet, energy efficient way to exchange stale, unhealthy indoor air for fresh, outside air throughout your entire home in an energy-efficient way 365 days a year.

Main Benefit of an Energy Recovery Ventilation (ERV)?

An ERV constantly supplies fresh air to provide a healthy indoor environment by reducing odors and/or indoor pollutants, such as radon, formaldehyde, tobacco smoke, nitrogen dioxides, carbon monoxide and pesticides.

How Does The Ventilator Work?

Energy Recovery Ventilator is an efficient way of exchanging the air inside your home with fresh outdoor air. In winter months, the heat of indoor air warms incoming cold fresh air, recovering approximately 77% of the energy.

In the summer, warm fresh air passes near outgoing conditioned air, cooling it down. At no time do the stale and fresh air streams mix, instead they pass each other separated by thin walls that allow only the air’s energy to transfer, cutting your heating and cooling bills.

Whole Home Ventilation Attic Fan

This fan is a less costly option and can replace all the stale air in your home quickly with fresh outdoor air. Open a window and turn on the fan. Homeowners who install whole-house fans can reduce their dependency on their air conditioning systems by nearly 50 percent. Call PDM for a free ventilator estimate.

Bathroom Exhaust Fan With Humidity Sensor

Besides powerful airflow, with exceptional performance, and ultra-quiet sound, choose a humidity sensor fan control detects excess humidity and automatically turns on the ventilation fan. Then automatically turn the fan off after a programmed period of time (user adjustable). As an added benefit, use of this sensor helps reduce energy usage by automatically operating the fan only when needed.
