Heat Recovery Ventilators

Keeping Energy Efficient Using a Heat Recovery Ventilator in Your Salt Lake City Home

Heat Recovery VentilatorsSo you’re livin’ large in a northern climate, i.e., any location northwest of the Florida panhandle. Ok… you’re maybe a little more north. And you’ve heard how great indoor air ventilation can be for indoor air quality. But, you are probably thinking, “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 several ducts past the heat exchanger. Now the heat exchanger is acting as a cop at a checkpoint, checking to see if the stale air contains heat. If there’s heat in the outgoing stale air, it moves it to the incoming fresh air, but pushes the contaminants and odors down the duct. Now you can benefit from ventilation that has 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 look into getting an Energy Recovery Ventilator instead. If you live in the Midwest, you’ll most likely benefit from having both.
