ventilate your bathrooms with a heat recovery ventilation system
A bathroom in a house is one of the important areas that modern home construction engineers focus. The earlier construction was centred towards living rooms only. However, the modern living concepts draw attention towards every inch of a house. The advanced home architecture focuses on elegant design that includes proper lighting, ventilation system, heating, and cooling systems while going energy efficient is yet another point of attention for modern construction. The good thing is that technological advancement provides various options for bathrooms, and bathroom HRV or bathroom heat recovery ventilation is one of them. Heat recovery ventilation is relatively the latest concept that targets ventilating the baths by recovering heat from stale air and providing the heat back to avoid sudden temperature drops.
How Heat Recovery Ventilation Works:
Buildings and residential apartments need fresh air for quality indoor air to residents and provide a better living environment. The occupancy ratio mainly decides the requirement of ventilation in commercial and residential occupations. It means that more residents in the building mean more carbon dioxide produced as they exhale. To balance this, more fresh air is required to make the indoor space comfortable and allow people to breathe fresh, healthy air.
Further, fresh air also requires to replace the polluted air that is being exhausted outside, i.e., from the bathroom. This allows a neutral pressure to be maintained. Ventilation has become more valuable in the current pandemic situation, which demands circulation of fresh air regularly for a healthy living environment as the fresh air flow into building limits the spread of the virus by diluting the concentration of harmful bacteria particles in the stale air.
The introduction of fresh air is a hassle-free process into an indoor space when the weather is mild as it will not interfere with the indoor comfort zone. It becomes challenging to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature, i.e., 25 degrees Celsius, when the outside temperature is cold or warmer. In that case, introducing the outside fresh air will abuse the indoor comfort zone. The difference between indoor and outdoor temperature demands extra energy to maintain indoor comfort.
The greater the temperature difference means more power consumption to bring the internal temperature to the required level. In short, the traditional ventilation system increase the energy cost in maintaining comfortable and healthy indoor conditions. This is where the Heat Recovery Ventilation helps. Their main task is to minimize the outside air load when supplying fresh air to the building residents, thus saving energy. The HRV system achieves this by transferring heat or energy between the air being exhausted outside and fresh air is introduced inside. This way, indoor heat can be reclaimed in a heating scenario, and outside heat can be rejected in a cooling scenario.
HRV Bathroom Ventilation:
The HRV Bathroom Fan ensures that the facility has ample fresh air by removing the stale air and recovering the heat or energy from outgoing air to avoid any thermal discomfort. The HRV system ensures to extract the toxic and harmful polluted air and drives the fresh outdoor air; at this time, the heat exchanger in HRV exchanges the heat without mixing the air.
