Heat Recovery Ventilators

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

Heat Recovery VentilatorsSo you’re livin’ large in a northern zone, i.e., anywhere northwest of the Florida panhandle. Ok… you’re maybe a little more 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 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 many ducts past the heat exchanger. Now the heat exchanger is acting as a cop at a checkpoint, monitoring to see if the stale air contains 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 your home has ventilation that has high energy efficiency. The heat recovery ventilator is suitable for colder climates. It’s also ideal 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 look into getting an Energy Recovery Ventilator instead. If you live in the Midwest, you’ll probably benefit from having both.
