Keeping Energy Efficient Using a Heat Recovery Ventilator in Your Edmonton Home So you’re livin’ large in a northern climate, i.e., any location 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 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 different sides of your house—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, 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 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 may have pockets of stale and/or contaminated air. If you currently live 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.
