How Heat Recovery and Energy Recovery Work
Letting fresh air into a home is easy. You just open up a window…right? Of course, this isn’t practical when it’s cold outside and you’ve got the heater running, or when it’s hot out and the air conditioner is on. In fact, it can cause a lot of trouble for your comfort systems, which run into trouble when they’re forced to cool or heat a much larger space than they’re designed for.
Heat recovery ventilation (an HRV) allows for fresh air to enter the home without too much heat gain or loss. In the winter, incoming fresh air is brought in with the help of a fan. First, it passes by a heat exchanger. The heat from the stale air that gets exhausted outdoors transfers to the fresh air coming in, so that efficiency is not affected very much. In the summer, heat from the incoming fresh air gets transfer to the air leaving the home.
An ERV system (energy recovery ventilator) works the same way. The only difference is that they can also transfer moisture along with heat. Ask your technician which system is the right choice for your climate and your home.
