Increased home insulation, heating system efficiencies, and improved overall airtightness means that air quality can be compromised. Heat Recovery Ventilation systems help to increase fresh air in the home without sacraficing heat.
A HRV system removes stale and moist air and brings in fresh, filtered, and prewarmed air to the home. This creates a healthier and more comfortable living space for the inhabitants.
The system works by pulling the stale, warm air out and bringing fresh air in. When the warm air passes the new, cooler air, it heats it up slightly, maintaining the home comfort levels. This saves upward of 80% of heat otherwise lost with traditional ventilation systems.
Units can be installed on a utility room wall or on an attic floor.
