So you’re livin’ large in a northern climate, i.e., any location northwest of the Florida panhandle. Ok… you’re maybe a little further north. And you’ve heard how beneficial 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 up my ventilation?” That’s where the Heat Recovery Ventilator enters.
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 several ducts past the heat exchanger. Now the heat exchanger is acting as a cop at a checkpoint, looking to see if the stale air contains heat. If there’s heat in the outgoing stale air, it transfers it to the incoming fresh air, but leaves the contaminants and odors heading down a one-way duct. Now you can benefit from ventilation that touts 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 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 most likely benefit from having both.
