North America residential Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERV) Market Outlook
The North America residential Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERV) market size was valued at USD 133.57 Million in 2022 and is projected to reach USD 336.18 Million by 2031, expanding at a CAGR of 10.8% during the forecast period 2023 - 2031. An energy recovery ventilator (ERV) is a centralized ventilation system, which delivers fresh air by balancing humidity within the room area and eliminating polluted indoor air.
It is sometimes referred to as ERV ventilation system or ERV air exchanger. It collects pollutants, pollen, and other potentially dangerous particles to guarantee that only fresh air reaches the available room area. An ERV is built in areas with high concentration of people. It helps to reduce utility costs and collect energy in the building. An energy recovery ventilator introduces fresh air into the building, decreases CO2 levels, and keeps people alert and healthy. It aids in odor management by allowing stale air to be evacuated and new air to enter the structure.
The key purpose of an ERV is to deliver passive homes with a ventilation system, which takes away humid and stale air and delivers fresh air into the home. Some of the key benefits of installing an ERV includes:
- Removal and filtering of formaldehyde, allergens, and other toxins from indoor spaces
- Reduces dependency on air conditioning
- Improves respiration for asthma sufferers
- Reduces bathroom, cooking, and pet odors
- Boosts energy efficiency of homes
- Mitigating mildew and mold risks
- Keeps temperatures consistent
- Traps and recalculates pollutants.
North America residential Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERV) Market Dynamics
Various rules and regulations by the government to reduce energy consumption in buildings are projected to drive the demand for Residential Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERV) during the forecast period. For instance, in 2019, 42 states, Puerto Rico, and Washington, D.C., considered more than 500 bills associated with energy efficiency and adopted or enacted over 80 measures.
Governments in the US focused on expanding or updating Energy Efficiency Resource Standards (EERS) policies and improving energy efficiency in residential buildings. States in the US considered new policies for financing or incentivizing efficient technologies.
According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), buildings use around 40% of the annual energy consumption and nearly 75% of the electricity demand in the US. Moreover, buildings account for nearly 30% of the total carbon dioxide, which is the main greenhouse gas related to atmospheric warming, approximately 25% of the nitrogen oxides, and 49% of the sulfur dioxide emitted in the US; thus, the need to decrease energy consumption in buildings is essential in order to meet environmental and national energy challenges.
Growing need to reduce energy consumption in residential buildings is anticipated to boost the demand for residential Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERV) during the forecast period.
Quality of air is a vital concern and is getting recognized in recent times. Deficient Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) has an adverse effect on the health, productivity, cognitive function, and wellbeing of indoor inhabitants; therefore, the demand for ERVs is expected to increase during the forecast period.
Additionally, ERV removes pollutants including household chemicals and excess moisture, minimizes carbon footprint, and optimizes energy efficiency. For instance, Residential energy recovery ventilation fulfils the ventilation and energy requirements of ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers).
High humidity is present inside a house. An ERV takes a long time to decrease the humidity, as the machine preserve a large portion of the humidity indoors, which is considered as a drawback of a residential ERV. A heat exchanger is a better choice than a residential ERV for many people, as it exchanges the heat in the air and drains the humidity outside the house.
A standard ERV equipment does not function well in cold climates. A residential house in an area with harsh winter requires specialized equipment with frost and freeze protection.
Continuous innovation in ERVs is creating new opportunities. Increasing innovations in energy recovery ventilators in order to meet the modified ventilation requirements of customers is creating opportunities in the market. Energy-saving innovations such as foam spray insulation is detrimental to the quality of indoor air. Rising awareness about the benefits of fresh and filtered air is expected to boost the demand for residential ERVs during the coming years.
