Keeping Energy Efficient Using a Heat Recovery Ventilator in Your Richmond Home So you’re livin’ large in a northern climate, i.e., any location northwest of the Florida panhandle. Ok… you’re maybe a little further north. And you’ve heard how beneficial 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 increase my ventilation?” That’s where the Heat Recovery Ventilator comes in to play. With two fans set at different 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 like 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 pushes the contaminants and odors down the duct. Now you can benefit from 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 can have pockets of stale and/or contaminated air. If you reside in a warm zone, you may want to consider getting an Energy Recovery Ventilator instead. If you live in the Midwest, you’ll most likely benefit from having both.
