Passive House Heat Exchanger – Recovery Ventilation
See Us for Your Passive House Heat Exchanger
The aim of a passive house is to utilise the design, structure and construction materials of a building to provide comfortable living conditions with the minimal use of energy. Key factors to be considered are the construction of windows, doors and facades; the degree to which the building is airtight; and the use of mechanical ventilation and heat or energy recovery.
A passive house heat exchanger is an effective means of controlling the internal temperature of a building by using the physics of heat transference. This essentially means that heat will transfer from a warmer object to a cooler object. A passive house heat exchanger operates by using latent heat already present in the air and transferring this energy to cooler incoming air. Through a system of fans, vents and ducting, and a heat exchanger which is typically mounted in the roof cavity of the building, air is circulated throughout the building. Warm and cold air pass each other within the heat exchanger through a system of small pipes without mixing physically. Heat is drawn from the stale air and transferred across to the incoming outside air which is at a cooler temperature. The fresher air is fed back down into the pipes and into the rooms of the building. The stale air, without its heat, is expelled into the atmosphere. People can still freely open and close windows as they see fit, as the passive house heat exchanger does not mix the fresh incoming air with the exhaust air, but simply exchanges the heat with the cool to significantly reduce the heating requirement within the dwelling.
