Heat Recovery Ventilation Systems (HRV)
Taking Moisture, Odor & Pollutants Out of Air Near Waukesha
Heat recovery ventilation systems take the heat or coolness out of old exhaust air and transfers it to intake air. At the same time, it removes moisture, odors and contaminants from the air, improving the air quality. If you’re looking for an energy efficient means of cleaning your air in and near Waukesha, 1st Choice Heating & Cooling can equip you with the HRV system that is right for you.
Balanced Ventilation Saves Energy & Improves Comfort
When we cook, wash and even breathe, we create moisture in the air. The HRV removes this moisture which reduces the occurrence of excess moisture which can cause mold growth on the walls. The HRV also removes any gases in the home such as those that might come from a gas range or water heater. By transferring heat while exchanging exhaust air with fresh air, your heat recovery ventilator will supply your home with fresh, clean air without sacrificing any comfort.
The HRV uses only a small amount of energy to power the electric fans that are part of the air exchange system. A regular unit features two fans - one that releases the old air and one that brings in new air. The heat exchange core transfers heat from the outgoing air stream to the incoming stream, recovering up to 85% of the heat that would otherwise be lost in the outgoing air stream.
A HRV system is an excellent solution for both improved indoor air quality and improved energy efficiency.
