Keeping Energy Efficient Using a Heat Recovery Ventilator in Your Edmonton Home So you’re livin’ large in a northern zone, i.e., any place northwest of the Florida panhandle. Ok… you’re maybe a little more 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 up my ventilation?” That’s where the Heat Recovery Ventilator enters. With two fans set at opposing 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 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 you’ve got ventilation that touts 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 reside 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.
