Heat Recovery Ventilators

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

Heat Recovery VentilatorsSo you’re livin’ large in a northern region, i.e., anywhere northwest of the Florida panhandle. Ok… you’re maybe slightly 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 up my ventilation?” That’s where the Heat Recovery Ventilator enters.

With two fans set at opposing 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 like a cop at a checkpoint, looking to see if the stale air includes heat. If there’s heat in the outgoing stale air, it relocates it to the incoming fresh air, but pushes the contaminants and odors down the duct. Now you’ve got ventilation that touts high energy efficiency. The heat recovery ventilator is suitable for colder climates. It’s also appropriate for newer or remodeled, tightly-sealed homes that could contain pockets of stale and/or contaminated air.

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