Why is a Heat Recovery Unit Necessary?

 One of the top five most polluted areas, according to the air quality board, is indoor air. Over the years building and home construction has become tighter and more sealed off from the outdoors.  No more drafty windows and doors give you a more efficient building, but it also keeps the pollution inside, rather than letting it draft out. This means health issues and allergic reactions due to mold, mildew, bacteria buildup and other products can release into the air. Fresh air make up units, economizers and other ventilation means can help minimize this. Having a heat recovery unit installed helps maximize your energy savings 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 Heat Recovery Ventilator or  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 a 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 new heat recovery unit, help you maintain your existing units and handle any repairs when needed. 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.
