Keeping Energy Efficient Using a Heat Recovery Ventilator in Your Rochester Home So you’re livin’ large in a northern zone, i.e., anywhere northwest of the Florida panhandle. Ok… you’re maybe a little further north. And you’ve heard how great indoor air ventilation can be for indoor air quality. But, you may be thinking, “won’t all my warm air just float away if I expand my ventilation?” That’s where the Heat Recovery Ventilator comes in. With two fans set at different sides of your home—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, checking 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 your home has ventilation that boasts high energy efficiency. The heat recovery ventilator is ideal 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 research getting an Energy Recovery Ventilator instead. If you live in the Midwest, you’ll most likely benefit from having both.
