Keeping Energy Efficient Using a Heat Recovery Ventilator in Your Waldorf Home So you’re livin’ large in a northern zone, i.e., any location 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 increase my ventilation?” That’s where the Heat Recovery Ventilator comes in to play. 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 many ducts past the heat exchanger. Now the heat exchanger is like a cop at a checkpoint, checking to see if the stale air is packing 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 boasts high energy efficiency. The heat recovery ventilator is ideal 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’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.
