How a Heat Recovery Ventilator Works

So what does an HRV actually do? Once integrated into your HVAC system, a heat recovery ventilator pulls outdoor air into the ducts through a vent, and then through a process called crosscurrent heat exchange it moves this fresh air through a stream of stale indoor air. Heat moves between the two streams, and this pre–conditions the fresh outside air to relieve the pressure on the heater or air conditioner.

For example, during a colder day, the heat recovery ventilator runs fresh, cool air past a current of stale, warm indoor air. The indoor air loses heat to the outdoor air. The outdoor air is now pre–heated before it goes to the heating system, and this makes the heater need to work less. During hot weather, the process reverses.

Why Install an HRV System

Heat recovery ventilators with help you save money on heating and cooling your home while permitting the fresh air to flow through the rooms that will provide greater comfort and superior health for your family. HRVs recover around 80% of the energy that would otherwise be wasted if you opened up your windows and doors to the outside to receive fresh air. This will make for a significant savings off your energy bills every year.

You may also know about energy recovery ventilators (ERVs), which work similar to HRVs. What is the difference and which one will benefit your home more? Heat recovery ventilators do not control humidity levels like ERVs do, but they are also more effective at dealing with lower outdoor temperatures. Ask professional installers about which system is the right one to install in your home.
