Heat Recovery Ventilators in Orlando, FL by FLORALA
Modern homes have been designed to be more and more airtight over the decades. The reason for this is that buildings with less air flow between them and the surrounding environment are better insulated. The better insulated a building is, the better you’ll be able to maintain climate control. Unfortunately, this has the added effect of causing the air inside the home to feel stale and musty much of the time. This effect is exacerbated by prolonged use of forced air systems, which tend to dry out the air. Fortunately, there is a way to solve for this problem. Call FLORALA and ask about our heat recovery ventilator services.
FLORALA offers heat recovery ventilators and provides HRV services near Orlando, FL and the surrounding areas.
What Is a Heat Recovery Ventilator?
A heat recovery ventilator, HRV for short, is a device designed to transfer fresh air between the outside environment and your home, without compromising your climate control. This is done by installing the ventilator into the ducts of your home. An offshoot of ductwork extends from the heat exchanger out of your house. The heat exchanger is essentially a portal, through which your home’s stale air flows out and fresh outside air flows in. As the two air flows move into the heat recovery ventilator, they move into a heat exchanger. In the heat exchanger, the air flows equalize each other’s temperature. This means that when the fresh air flows into your home, it will be roughly the same temperature as the air already inside.
The Benefits of an HRV
By using an HRV, you can maintain proper climate control in your home without having to suffer the accompanying stale air that comes with prolonged forced air system use. This is especially important in Florida, which can experience some very hot and humid summers. You don’t want to let all of that heat into your home every time you want some fresh air, do you? That’s why a heat recovery ventilator is so beneficial.
Using a heat recovery ventilator also improves your indoor air quality. Homes that are kept too insulated from fresh air tend to experience higher buildup of contaminants like dust and germs. Fresh air helps to circulate these contaminants out of the home. So, installing a heat recovery ventilator not only improves your climate control, but your air quality.
