Keeping Energy Efficient Using a Heat Recovery Ventilator in Your Cleveland Home So you’re livin’ large in a northern climate, i.e., any place northwest of the Florida panhandle. Ok… you’re maybe slightly further north. And you’ve heard how valuable indoor air ventilation can be for indoor air quality. But, you may be thinking, “won’t all my warm air just float away if I expand my ventilation?” That’s where the Heat Recovery Ventilator comes in. With two fans set at opposite 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 similar to a cop at a checkpoint, monitoring to see if the stale air contains heat. If there’s heat in the outgoing stale air, it relocates it to the incoming fresh air, but continues to push the contaminants and odors down the duct. Now your home has ventilation that boasts high energy efficiency. The heat recovery ventilator is ideal for colder climates. It’s also appropriate 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 research getting an Energy Recovery Ventilator instead. If you live in the Midwest, you’ll most likely benefit from having both.
