Residential Air to Air Heat Exchanger & Recovery Ventilator
Get a residential air exchanger to improve your home’s air quality
Using a residential air to heat exchanger is an environmentally friendly way of ensuring that stale air inside your building is regularly replenished with fresh, healthy air that has been filtered before being circulated around the home. The benefit of proper ventilation is better indoor air quality while the heat recovery function of a residential heat recovery ventilator is an energy efficient way of keeping your home warm in colder months.
A residential energy recovery ventilator typically comprises two fans, one to exhaust stale air from the house, one to supply fresh air into the house. Between these two points is a heat exchanger which transfers heat or energy from one airstream into the other. The residential air to heat exchanger also transfers some of the moisture in the more humid exhaust air into the less humid supply air resulting in a more pleasant living environment and lessening the chance of moisture build up and the potential growth of mould and mildew. The heat/energy transfer undertaken by a residential heat recovery ventilator means that your home heating system will use less energy compared with any other type of home ventilation.
The optimum way to ventilate a home is to supply just the right amount of fresh air continuously throughout the year while simultaneously exhausting an equal amount of stale indoor air.
During cooler months, when heating is required, heat is transferred from the warm indoor exhaust air into the cold outdoor supply air inside the residential air to heat exchanger. The heat exchanger not only transfers this heat, but also transfers some of the moisture in the more humid exhaust air into the less humid supply air. In warmer months when the objective is to keep the home cool, the process depends whether or not you are exhausting air-conditioned air. If you are air conditioning the indoor air, heat will be transferred from the warm/hot outdoor supply air into the cool indoor exhaust air inside residential air to heat exchanger. This results in a reduction in the temperature of the fresh air coming in. The heat exchanger also transfers some of the moisture in the more humid supply air into the less humid exhaust air. This reduces the humidity of the fresh air coming in, meaning that your home’s cooling system will require less power consumption than otherwise.
It is important to note that the transfer of heat or energy in a residential air to heat exchanger happens without the mixing of the two air streams so that air pollutants within the home are exhausted and replaced by fresh filtered air.
