So you’re livin’ large in a northern region, i.e., any location northwest of the Florida panhandle. Ok… you’re maybe a little further north. And you’ve heard how great 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 up my ventilation?” That’s where the Heat Recovery Ventilator enters.
With two fans set at opposing 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 various 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 leaves the contaminants and odors heading down a one-way duct. Now you can benefit from ventilation that has high energy efficiency. The heat recovery ventilator is suitable for colder climates. It’s also appropriate 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.
