So you’re livin’ large in a northern climate, 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 may be thinking, “won’t all my warm air just float away if I expand my ventilation?” That’s where the Heat Recovery Ventilator comes in.
With two fans set at opposing sides of your house—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, looking to see if the stale air is packing heat. If there’s heat in the outgoing stale air, it moves it to the incoming fresh air, but continues to push the contaminants and odors down the duct. Now you can benefit from ventilation that has high energy efficiency. The heat recovery ventilator is perfect for colder climates. It’s also appropriate for newer or remodeled, tightly-sealed homes that could contain pockets of stale and/or contaminated air.
If you currently live in a warm zone, you may want to research getting an Energy Recovery Ventilator instead. If you live in the Midwest, you’ll most likely benefit from having both.
