Keeping Energy Efficient Using a Heat Recovery Ventilator in Your Kitchener Home So you’re livin’ large in a northern region, i.e., any place 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 expand my ventilation?” That’s where the Heat Recovery Ventilator comes in. 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 several ducts past the heat exchanger. Now the heat exchanger is similar to a cop at a checkpoint, looking 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’ve got ventilation that touts high energy efficiency. The heat recovery ventilator is perfect 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 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 probably benefit from having both.
