Feel good about every breath you take. M&E helps you select the right fresh air system for your home, so you can reduce allergy problems, feel better, and be healthier.

What is a fresh air ventilation system?

Great question! Different people mean different things when they talk about getting fresh air for your home. Here's how we define a fresh air system:

  • Designed to fit your home and address your unique air quality concerns

  • Involves one or more pieces of mechanical equipment

  • May include an energy recovery ventilator, or ERV

  • May include a whole-house dehumidifier with a fresh air intake

  • Always includes a high-quality air filter

  • May interface with a HEPA filter

Here are some other factors to consider when selecting a fresh air system for your home:

  • Filtration of airborne outdoor pollutants

  • Humidity management

  • Fresh air intake design and HVAC compatibility

  • Compliance with ventilation-specific building codes

  • Efficiency, comfort, and HVAC system integration

There is no one-size-fits-all fresh air system for homes.

Every home is different, and every home requires a unique fresh air solution. In some homes, a balanced ventilation system, like an ERV, makes the most sense. In others, a ventilating whole-house dehumidifier is a better option.

Sometimes, all you need to do is supplement existing ventilation with a better air filter.

It just depends. At M&E, our team can analyze your home and make well-informed recommendations based on house size, the needs of your family, and your budget.

An ERV provides balanced fresh air ventilation.


Many homeowners throughout Malta use energy recovery ventilators (best known as ERVs) to ensure a constant stream of fresh air to their living spaces.

ERVs are often effective in our climate zone because they:

  • Reduce humidity in the incoming fresh air

  • Remove heat from incoming air during summer and recover that heat during winter

  • Provide balanced ventilation, so you're always removing stale, "old" air and replacing it in equal amounts with fresh, "new" air.

  • Integrate nicely with most existing HVAC systems and ductwork


Is an ERV the best fresh air system choice for your home? That all depends on your home's attributes and your personal goals.

Be sure your fresh air system helps you manage humidity.

Basic HVAC fresh air intake dampers do a poor job managing humidity.


That's why your best bets for fresh air in our climate zone are usually an ERV or a ventilating whole-house dehumidifier.

  • ERVs provide balanced ventilation and reduce the humidity of incoming air.

  • Ventilating whole-house dehumidifiers provide positive pressure ventilation and directly remove humidity from incoming air.

Either way, you're covered for fresh, clean air and humidity control. You'll feel more comfortable, breathe healthier air, and better avoid the scourges of mold, insects, and dust mites that thrive in humid environments.
