Keeping Energy Efficient Using a Heat Recovery Ventilator in Your Indianapolis Home So you’re livin’ large in a northern zone, i.e., anywhere northwest of the Florida panhandle. Ok… you’re maybe a little further north. And you’ve heard how beneficial 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 increase my ventilation?” That’s where the Heat Recovery Ventilator comes in to play. With two fans set at opposing sides of your living space—one for blowing in fresh air, the other for blowing out stale air—the heat recovery ventilator directs air through various ducts past the heat exchanger. Now the heat exchanger is like a cop at a checkpoint, checking to see if the stale air contains heat. If there’s heat in the outgoing stale air, it transfers it to the incoming fresh air, but continues to push the contaminants and odors down the duct. Now you’ve got ventilation that has high energy efficiency. The heat recovery ventilator is suitable for colder climates. It’s also a great solution for newer or remodeled, tightly-sealed homes that may 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 probably benefit from having both.
