So you’re livin’ large in a northern region, i.e., any place 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 think to yourself, “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 different sides of your living space—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 similar to a cop at a checkpoint, checking to see if the stale air includes 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 you’ve got ventilation that boasts high energy efficiency. The heat recovery ventilator is perfect for colder climates. It’s also ideal for newer or remodeled, tightly-sealed homes that may have pockets of stale and/or contaminated air.
If you reside in a warm zone, you may want to consider getting an Energy Recovery Ventilator instead. If you live in the Midwest, you’ll likely benefit from having both.
