Keeping Energy Efficient Using a Heat Recovery Ventilator in Your Home So you’re livin’ large in a northern region, i.e., any location northwest of the Florida panhandle. Ok… you’re maybe slightly further north. And you’ve heard how beneficial indoor air ventilation can be for indoor air quality. But, you are probably 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 different sides of your house—one for blowing in fresh air, the other for blowing out stale air—the heat recovery ventilator directs air through several 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 moves it to the incoming fresh air, but pushes the contaminants and odors down the duct. Now your home has ventilation that boasts high energy efficiency. The heat recovery ventilator is suitable for colder climates. It’s also a great solution 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 research getting an Energy Recovery Ventilator instead. If you live in the Midwest, you’ll likely benefit from having both.
