What Is a Heat Recovery Ventilator?
A heat recovery ventilator is a mechanical ventilation device which is incorporated into an HVAC system. Essentially, the HRV serves as a heat exchanger between the incoming and outgoing streams of air entering and exiting the HVAC system. This means that, during the summer months, cooled but stale air is vented out of your home, while fresh but hot air is brought in. The heat recovery ventilator allows for this air exchange without wasting the energy you’ve used to cool the air within your home.
As the hot air enters your system, the outgoing cool air stream passes very nearby. The two streams do not mix, but the HRV does allow for the outgoing air to absorb some of the heat of the incoming air. This means that the fresh air is preconditioned, and your AC won’t have to work as hard in order to cool fresh air when ventilating your home.
The HRV works both ways. During the winter months, you are going to run your heater often. This can result in air of a very low quality within your home after a while. By bringing in fresh air and preheating it with the outgoing air via the heat recovery ventilator, you can take a lot of the strain off your heater. It is through this process that an HRV is able to help you balance healthy ventilation levels along with your desire for great heating and cooling efficiency.
We Install and Service Heat Recovery Ventilators
It should go without saying that only a trained, experienced professional should be allowed to install your heat recovery ventilator. You see, integrating any such equipment into your existing HVAC system can easily lead to damages and operational problems if left to untrained individuals. You will not get the efficiency benefits that you seek if your system or its installation are compromised, nor will you enjoy the improved indoor air quality that an HRV should be able to offer. If you need a new HRV installed, or if your existing device requires service of any kind, make sure that you get in touch with the Vogt Heating, Air Conditioning and Plumbing team in order to have the job done right.
