04 Sep Save Energy Dollars and Breathe Fresh Air With a Heat Recovery Ventilator
As a Michigan homeowner, you want to save as much as possible on energy and enjoy clean, fresh air. Can this be accomplished easily? You bet, through an HRV (heat recovery ventilator) system. This is a system that uses two motors in a single unit, a supply and exhaust motor, to drive out stale air while replacing it with fresh, breathable air that’s healthier for your family. The design of the HRV system means fewer irritants such as pollen, dust and other airborne particles – and you save money on energy costs!
A few other facts you’ll find interesting:
Heat recovery ventilators are designed to transfer heat, and operate on a very small amount of energy. This winter you will enjoy a warm, comfortable home with fresher, cleaner air while simultaneously reducing your energy costs. Normal extract ventilation means lost heat, and lost energy dollars.
The way it works is simple. HRVs collect stale, moist air through a series of ducts in areas such as the bathroom, kitchen and laundry room. As this stale air is exhausted to the outdoors, fresh air is drawn in and heat transfers as the two pass, with no mixing of the contaminated air and the clean, fresh air. A heat recovery core transfers heat from the outgoing, stale air to the incoming fresh air.
An HRV helps eliminate condensation as well, which means less mold and mildew. Moisture in your home can lead to problems not only health-wise, but with your walls, floors, and even furnishings.
To sum it up, you can enjoy substantial energy savings and a healthy, comfortable home filled with fresh, quality air. Want to learn more about what a heat recovery ventilator can do for you?
