Indoor Air Quality
Heat and Energy Recovery Ventilators in Bozeman, MT
Tightly sealed homes make it easier to avoid heat gain in the summer and heat loss during the winter. Although this helps improve energy efficiency, it can have a terrible effect on indoor air quality. Too many contaminants become trapped inside the home without any fresh air circulation to remove the stale air and replace it. Opening doors and windows brings in fresh air, but also brings in unwanted temperatures and more work for the HVAC system.
Ambient Air Solutions has a way to solve this problem: installing a heat or energy recovery ventilator, which allow fresh air to enter a house without causing huge temperature shifts. We offer many other indoor air quality products for homes in the Helena and Bozeman, MT area, and we back up all our work with a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

The Benefits of Energy and Heat Recovery Ventilators
Energy recovery ventilators (ERVs) and heat recovery ventilators (HRVs) are devices integrated into a home’s HVAC system that exhaust pollutant-filled indoor air and replace it with an equal quantity of fresh outdoor air. To prevent energy waste, ERVs and HRVs use the indoor air to pre-heat or pre-cool the incoming air, which "recovers" the energy originally used to heat or cool the indoor air.
In the winter, the warm air in the house heats up the fresh cold air as it exits the house. In summer, the cool indoor air removes heat from the warm outdoor air as they change places. This allows a home to enjoy circulation of fresh air without forcing the furnace or air conditioner to work harder.
We Carry the Top Models of ERV and HRV Systems
We know the best performance comes from the most advanced and dependable manufacturers. This is why we carry Honeywell and Fantech HRV and ERV systems. We’ll assist you with finding the right installation for the size of your house and your specific needs.
One of the exceptional units we carry is the Fantech Heat Recovery Ventilator SH 704 Unit. This is Fantech’s smallest and most compact side-duct connection HRV, serving one or two-bedroom homes. It brings a continuous supply of fresh air into a house while exhausting an equal amount of stale indoor air. It is equipped with an automatic defrost mechanism so you can use the unit throughout the year, no matter the outdoor chill. When the supply air stream temperature drops below 23°F, the defrost cycle starts. The supply motor shuts down while the exhaust motor continues to ventilate. Ambient air passes through the HRV for around 3 to 5 minutes, and then the supply motor restarts. It runs at a single speed, no control needed.
