Keeping Energy Efficient Using a Heat Recovery Ventilator in Your Buffalo 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 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 home—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 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 moves it to the incoming fresh air, but pushes the contaminants and odors down the duct. Now you’ve got ventilation that boasts high energy efficiency. The heat recovery ventilator is suitable for colder climates. It’s also appropriate 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.
