The challenge of prioritizing IAQ and using high ventilation rates is to cost effectively treat the fresh outdoor air for temperature and humidity. For the past 15 years, Drury Southwest has utilized rotary energy recovery wheels manufactured by Airxchange Inc. in new hotel constructions and HVAC system renovations.
Selling end-users just an energy recovery ventilator (ERV) without realizing the options or wheel’s long-term performance benefits cheats a facility out its full energy-saving potential, which is ironically the premise for energy recovery in the first place.
Energy Recovery Ventilation Tool Quantifies the Benefits

Airxchange has announced AIRX Estimator for the Environment, a free online estimation tool to quickly calculate the energy savings and positive environmental impact when commercial buildings implement energy recovery ventilation (ERV) technology.
Besides traditional renewable products, there are a list of HVAC-specific items that could be considered as energy-saving options for the residential and commercial contractor looking to offer customers renewable solutions.
As home and building owners continue to look for ways to save money, manufacturers of air movement and ventilation products are reporting growing popularity in energy recovery ventilators (ERVs), air curtains, electronically commutated motors (ECMs), HVLS (high-volume, low-speed) fans, and ventilation control systems.
Marvair’s high efficiency wall mount heat pumps and air conditioners are available with the GreenCube Energy Recovery Ventilator. The GreenCube ERV is an enthalpy plate energy exchanger with no moving parts.
