A heat recovery ventilator (HRV) brings in fresh air from the outside, preheats the incoming air during the winter and precools the incoming air during the summer. It can provide clean fresh air every day while helping to keep energy costs low.An HRV is designed to be energy efficient and exchange the air to: 1. Bring in fresh air you want at a rate you choose, 2. Clean the incoming air, 3. Exhaust stale air, pollutants, and moisture, while 4. Recovering up to 85% of the heating or cooling energy.Trapped inside, air cannot renew itself and becomes stale. Today's homes are built so tightly that carbon dioxide (C02) can build up in them. And what is the chief source of carbon dioxide? It's people — you and your family. Each time you breathe, you exhale carbon dioxide. And in a tightly built home, carbon dioxide can build up to an unhealthy level. Add more people and C02 can build up fast. Symptoms of excess C02 may include nagging headaches, general lethargy, and grogginess.If you suffer from frequent colds or allergy symptoms, an HRV can help relieve these problems. In newly constructed homes, pollutants can be released into the air by household chemicals, carpeting and construction materials. These can often be the cause of headaches, asthma, allergic reactions to dust, and the common cold that lingers on in the winter months. An HRV brings in a steady supply of fresh filtered air so that you can breathe easy and safely.
