Homes are becoming more airtight as building practices and materials improve. While this is great for efficiency, there’s an unintended consequence — less fresh air in our homes. In older homes, small cracks and leaks would bring in fresh air, especially during the winter months when we keep windows closed. But now, many homes are filled with stale air. With a Heat Recovery Ventilator (HRV), you can bring fresh air into your home and conserve energy.
An HRV system can be installed to work in conjunction with your HVAC system. Fresh air is brought in from the outside and exchanged for indoor stale air. As the exchange takes place, there is a transfer of heat — the warm indoor air preheats the cold outdoor air — saving about 70-80% of the heat. Not only does this increase the air quality in your home, it is cost effective and energy efficient.
HRV Professional Installation
There are many benefits to an HRV system in your home, but it’s extremely important that a certified professional performs the installation of the equipment. An improperly installed HRV system could result in an unbalanced home — where the amount of air being brought in is more (or less) than what is being expelled. This could lead to a difference in air pressure, poor airflow and poor heat recovery.
With an HRV system installed in your home, you’ll notice a significant improvement in the quality of your indoor air this winter.
