Keeping Energy Efficient Using a Heat Recovery Ventilator in Your Gainesville 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 more 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 different 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 various ducts past the heat exchanger. Now the heat exchanger is similar to 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’ve got ventilation that touts high energy efficiency. The heat recovery ventilator is perfect 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 likely benefit from having both.
