Heat Recovery Ventilators

Keeping Energy Efficient Using a Heat Recovery Ventilator in Your Dayton Home

Heat Recovery VentilatorsSo you’re livin’ large in a northern zone, i.e., any location northwest of the Florida panhandle. Ok… you’re maybe a little more 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 expand my ventilation?” That’s where the Heat Recovery Ventilator comes in.

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 many ducts past the heat exchanger. Now the heat exchanger is like a cop at a checkpoint, monitoring 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’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 can have pockets of stale and/or contaminated air.

If you’re living in a warm zone, you may want to consider getting an Energy Recovery Ventilator instead. If you live in the Midwest, you’ll probably benefit from having both.
