Keeping Energy Efficient Using a Heat Recovery Ventilator in Your Champaign Home So you’re livin’ large in a northern zone, i.e., anywhere 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 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 many 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 can benefit from 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 can have 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.
