Keeping Energy Efficient Using a Heat Recovery Ventilator in Your Houston Home So you’re livin’ large in a northern zone, i.e., any location northwest of the Florida panhandle. Ok… you’re maybe slightly 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 expand my ventilation?” That’s where the Heat Recovery Ventilator comes in. 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 several ducts past the heat exchanger. Now the heat exchanger is acting as a cop at a checkpoint, monitoring to see if the stale air contains heat. If there’s heat in the outgoing stale air, it relocates it to the incoming fresh air, but pushes the contaminants and odors down the duct. Now your home has ventilation that touts high energy efficiency. The heat recovery ventilator is perfect for colder climates. It’s also ideal for newer or remodeled, tightly-sealed homes that can have pockets of stale and/or contaminated air. If you’re living in a warm zone, you may want to look into getting an Energy Recovery Ventilator instead. If you live in the Midwest, you’ll most likely benefit from having both.
