Keeping Energy Efficient Using a Heat Recovery Ventilator in Your Plano Home So you’re livin’ large in a northern region, 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 expand my ventilation?” That’s where the Heat Recovery Ventilator comes in. 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 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 leaves the contaminants and odors heading down a one-way duct. Now you’ve got ventilation that boasts high energy efficiency. The heat recovery ventilator is ideal for colder climates. It’s also ideal for newer or remodeled, tightly-sealed homes that can 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 probably benefit from having both.
