Keeping Energy Efficient Using a Heat Recovery Ventilator in Your Louisville Home So you’re livin’ large in a northern region, i.e., anywhere northwest of the Florida panhandle. Ok… you’re maybe a little more 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 increase my ventilation?” That’s where the Heat Recovery Ventilator comes in to play. With two fans set at opposing sides of your house—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 like a cop at a checkpoint, looking to see if the stale air includes heat. If there’s heat in the outgoing stale air, it moves it to the incoming fresh air, but leaves the contaminants and odors heading down a one-way duct. Now you can benefit from ventilation that has high energy efficiency. The heat recovery ventilator is ideal for colder climates. It’s also ideal for newer or remodeled, tightly-sealed homes that could contain pockets of stale and/or contaminated air. If you reside in a warm zone, you may want to look into getting an Energy Recovery Ventilator instead. If you live in the Midwest, you’ll likely benefit from having both.
