Keeping Energy Efficient Using a Heat Recovery Ventilator in Your Oakville Home So you’re livin’ large in a northern region, i.e., anywhere northwest of the Florida panhandle. Ok… you’re maybe a little 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 up my ventilation?” That’s where the Heat Recovery Ventilator enters. With two fans set at opposite 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 similar to a cop at a checkpoint, looking to see if the stale air includes heat. If there’s heat in the outgoing stale air, it transfers it to the incoming fresh air, but continues to push the contaminants and odors down the duct. Now your home has ventilation that boasts high energy efficiency. The heat recovery ventilator is ideal 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 probably benefit from having both.
