Keeping Energy Efficient Using a Heat Recovery Ventilator in Your Raleigh 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 think to yourself, “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 living space—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 like 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 relocates it to the incoming fresh air, but continues to push the contaminants and odors down the duct. Now you can benefit from ventilation that touts high energy efficiency. The heat recovery ventilator is suitable for colder climates. It’s also a great solution for newer or remodeled, tightly-sealed homes that could contain pockets of stale and/or contaminated air. If you’re living in a warm zone, you may want to consider getting an Energy Recovery Ventilator instead. If you live in the Midwest, you’ll most likely benefit from having both.
