Keeping Energy Efficient Using a Heat Recovery Ventilator in Your Knoxville Home So you’re livin’ large in a northern region, i.e., any location northwest of the Florida panhandle. Ok… you’re maybe slightly further north. And you’ve heard how great 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 house—one for blowing in fresh air, the other for blowing out stale air—the heat recovery ventilator directs air through many ducts past the heat exchanger. Now the heat exchanger is like a cop at a checkpoint, looking to see if the stale air includes heat. If there’s heat in the outgoing stale air, it moves it to the incoming fresh air, but pushes 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 ideal for newer or remodeled, tightly-sealed homes that could contain pockets of stale and/or contaminated air. If you currently live in a warm zone, you may want to consider getting an Energy Recovery Ventilator instead. If you live in the Midwest, you’ll most likely benefit from having both.
