Keeping Energy Efficient Using a Heat Recovery Ventilator in Your Fort Myers Home So you’re livin’ large in a northern climate, i.e., any location northwest of the Florida panhandle. Ok… you’re maybe a little more north. And you’ve heard how valuable indoor air ventilation can be for indoor air quality. But, you think to yourself, “won’t all my warm air just float away if I up my ventilation?” That’s where the Heat Recovery Ventilator enters. With two fans set at different sides of your home—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, looking to see if the stale air is packing heat. If there’s heat in the outgoing stale air, it relocates it to the incoming fresh air, but continues to push the contaminants and odors down the duct. Now you’ve got ventilation that touts high energy efficiency. The heat recovery ventilator is perfect for colder climates. It’s also a great solution for newer or remodeled, tightly-sealed homes that can have pockets of stale and/or contaminated air. If you currently live in a warm zone, you may want to research getting an Energy Recovery Ventilator instead. If you live in the Midwest, you’ll probably benefit from having both.
