Heat Recovery Ventilators

Keeping Energy Efficient Using a Heat Recovery Ventilator in Your Fort Wayne Home

Heat Recovery VentilatorsSo you’re livin’ large in a northern region, i.e., any place northwest of the Florida panhandle. Ok… you’re maybe a little further north. And you’ve heard how beneficial indoor air ventilation can be for indoor air quality. But, you are probably thinking, “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 acting as a cop at a checkpoint, checking to see if the stale air is packing 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 can benefit from ventilation that has high energy efficiency. The heat recovery ventilator is ideal 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’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.
