And HRV works to substitute stale, dirty air with fresh, clean air.
When I learn up on potential causes for terrible indoor air quality, every article mentioned the importance of proper ventilation, and apparently, this has become a growing problem as current construction methods have created more airnarrow homes, then with the skyrocketing cost of energy, ensuring a tightly sealed thermal envelope has become a priority. I’ve substituted windows, added insulation, caulked and weatherstripped to prevent heated and cooled air from leaking out, and however, these precautions also stop fresh air from coming inside, however the weather in my local part is severe enough to require heating or cooling just about year round! Opening the windows is seldom an option. My efforts to improve energy efficiency and reduce utility bills has led to contaminants becoming trapped inside! Dust, dander, stinks and all sorts of harmful toxins get introduced into the breathing air and continually circulated by the heating or cooling system. Headaches, sore throat, congestion, sneezing, coughing and difficulty sleeping can be blamed on contaminated air quality. I’ve been looking into different types of indoor air quality accessories. I am leaning toward the upgrade of a heat reusey ventilator. And HRV works to substitute stale, dirty air with fresh, clean air. It helps to improve the cleanliness and health of the home, effectively handles excess humidity and even lessens the workload of the boiler and air conditioning. In the winter, the ventilation system takes luck of the sizzling outgoing air, using it to heat up the incoming air. In the summer, getting rid of moisture makes the home feel cooler at higher control component settings.
