A heat recovery ventilator (HRV) brings in fresh air from the outside, preheats the incoming air during the winter and precools the incoming air during the summer. It can provide clean fresh air every day while helping to keep energy costs low.
The heat recovery ventilation system recycles up to 88% of the heat normally lost with conventional extractors. Heat recovery ventilation systems filter dust, pollen and smoke, providing superior air quality whilst maintaining stable internal temperature and humidity levels.
Tight buildings reduce energy costs by keeping in the heated or air conditioned air. Tight buildings without adequate ventilation trap humidity and pollutants so they feel "stuffy", aggravate allergies and cause general discomfort for you and your family.
Moisture damage to windows and other parts of the building shell can result when humidity is too high.
The heart of an air-to-air HRV system is the heat recovery ventilation unit which houses the heat exchange core.
They provide an energy efficient way to bring in fresh filtered air while removing stale air.
