So you’re livin’ large in a northern climate, i.e., anywhere northwest of the Florida panhandle. Ok… you’re maybe slightly further north. And you’ve heard how valuable indoor air ventilation can be for indoor air quality. But, you may be thinking, “won’t all my warm air just float away if I increase my ventilation?” That’s where the Heat Recovery Ventilator comes in to play.
With two fans set at opposing sides of your home—one for blowing in fresh air, the other for blowing out stale air—the heat recovery ventilator directs air through many ducts past the heat exchanger. Now the heat exchanger is acting as a cop at a checkpoint, checking to see if the stale air contains heat. If there’s heat in the outgoing stale air, it relocates it to the incoming fresh air, but leaves the contaminants and odors heading down a one-way duct. Now your home has ventilation that boasts high energy efficiency. The heat recovery ventilator is ideal for colder climates. It’s also appropriate for newer or remodeled, tightly-sealed homes that can have pockets of stale and/or contaminated air.
If you currently live in a warm zone, you may want to consider getting an Energy Recovery Ventilator instead. If you live in the Midwest, you’ll probably benefit from having both.
