Keeping Energy Efficient Using a Heat Recovery Ventilator in Your Kingston Home So you’re livin’ large in a northern zone, i.e., any place northwest of the Florida panhandle. Ok… you’re maybe slightly further north. And you’ve heard how great 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 different sides of your living space—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 acting as a cop at a checkpoint, looking 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 continues to push the contaminants and odors down the duct. Now you’ve got ventilation that has high energy efficiency. The heat recovery ventilator is suitable for colder climates. It’s also appropriate 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 look into getting an Energy Recovery Ventilator instead. If you live in the Midwest, you’ll most likely benefit from having both.
