Why is a Heat Recovery Unit Necessary?

Over the years building and home construction has become tighter and more sealed off from the outdoors.  No more drafty windows and doors and every place that could leak air gets caulked and sealed up.  One of the problems with this is that on top of making your building or home more efficient, it keeps the pollution inside your building or home rather than letting it draft out.  Some of the problems that come with this are mold, mildew, bacteria buildup etc. not to mention carbon monoxide, contaminants that plastics, electronics, carpet, paint and other products can release into the air.  All of this combined can cause health problems and allergic reactions.  One of the top five most polluted areas according to the air quality board is indoor air.  What can be done about this you might ask?  Well, that is where fresh air make up units, economizers and other ventilation means come into play.  One of the side effects of this technology though is exhausting the heated air that you just spend money making goes out with the exhaust.  This is where the heat recovery unit comes into play.  It helps maximize saving your energy by using that exhausted air to re-heat the fresh air that is being pushed into the home or building.

What does a (HRV) Heat Recovery Ventilator do?

A Boise Heat Recovery Ventilator or Nampa Heat Recovery Unit is similar to a balanced ventilation system except that it uses the heat in the exhausted air to help warm up the fresh air prior to the roof top unit or heating system having to heat it from being direct cold outside air.  There is a heat exchanger core inside the unit that helps transfer heat from the outgoing stream of air to the fresh incoming air.  Depending on the unit an Caldwell heat recovery unit can recover up to 85% of the heat that you are discharging to the outdoors.  What does that mean for you?  That means that you are going to save money when it comes to heating up the fresh air you are pulling into the building.  If you would like more information on Heat Recovery units in Boise, Meridian, Nampa or Caldwell you can give us a call or Click on the link below and we will get your questions answered for you.  Drake Mechanical can install your heat recovery unit, help you maintain your existing heat recovery units or repair your heat recovery ventilator if it needs worked on.  Give us a call today and let the Treasure Valleys Heat Recovery specialists bring some more efficiency to your home or building.  From Homes, Offices, Industrial facilities or hospitals Drake Mechanical can get you taken care of!  For emergency service please call so we can make sure we get your message in time and get your HRV back up and running quickly and efficiently.
