Take Advantage of Heat Recovery Ventilation

When you live somewhere as cold as we do, it can be difficult to keep the air in your home fresh during the winter season. Why? Because you’re obviously not going to be cracking the windows to let fresh air in. It’s far too cold to do so, and you risk serious energy inefficiency if you get desperate enough to try that. There is a better way, though.

Using a heat recovery ventilator in Springfield, VT can help you to enjoy great indoor air quality without putting your energy efficiency on the chopping block. Read on to learn more about how these ventilation devices operate. If you think that one is right for your home, just give us a call to schedule service.

How Heat Recovery Works

So the reason that you don’t open your windows in the winter is because you don’t want to let the heat out. So you just keep the same, stale, warm air recirculating throughout the house over and over again, and your indoor air quality suffers because of it. An HRV solves this problem by passing the outgoing air close to the incoming air that heat transfer takes place.

The heat recovery ventilator is basically just a ventilator with a heat exchanger component. When the HRV vents stale, but warm, air out of your home, it can transfer the heat from that air into the air coming into the house, which is fresh but cold. That is how a heat recovery ventilator allows homeowners to enjoy great comfort, great efficiency, and great indoor air quality all at once.

Plus, the HRV is just as beneficial in the summer when you are running your air conditioner. Then, the outgoing cool air simply absorbs much of the heat from the incoming hot air. That takes a lot of strain off of your AC while also facilitating the improvement of your indoor air quality. It really is a win-win situation.
