Keeping Energy Efficient Using a Heat Recovery Ventilator in Your Akron Home So you’re livin’ large in a northern region, i.e., any place northwest of the Florida panhandle. Ok… you’re maybe slightly further 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 up my ventilation?” That’s where the Heat Recovery Ventilator enters. With two fans set at opposite sides of your house—one for blowing in fresh air, the other for blowing out stale air—the heat recovery ventilator directs air through various 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 transfers it to the incoming fresh air, but continues to push 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 a great solution for newer or remodeled, tightly-sealed homes that can 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 likely benefit from having both.
