A heat recovery ventilator (HRV) is an ingenious device which your HVAC or indoor air quality specialist can incorporate into your existing heating and cooling system. The way it works is really quite simple. Fresh air is brought into your home from outside, while stale air is expelled from your home in a similar fashion. This may not sound that incredible, and you may wonder why you shouldn’t just crack a window or two in order to ventilate your home. Well, the added bonus is that the HRV uses a heat exchange process in order to allow you the benefit of adequate ventilation without putting the efficiency with which you heat and cool your home on the chopping block.
As the air is brought into your home, it passes very nearby the outgoing air, thought the two airstreams do not mix. However, thermal energy is exchanged between the two airstreams, the direction in which it does so being determined by the season. During the summer, as cool air exits your home, the hot incoming air is precooled by the outgoing air. When it is chilly outside, and you are heating your home, the opposite happens. The incoming air is warmed by the hot but stale air leaving your house. This takes a lot of stress off your air conditioning and heating systems, as you are not replacing lost energy, and it can help to significantly cut down on energy costs as well.
