Heat Recovery Ventilation

Why Ventilate?
Modern construction methods have not only provided more energy efficient homes, but also a long list of ailments your home may be experiencing:
- window condensation
- high humidity
- moisture problems
- premature structural deterioration
- stale air
- back drafting of combustion appliances
- poor indoor air quality
- musty odours and mold

The solution to these problems is to ventilate. Heat recovery ventilation is essential in airtight, well-insulated homes because if indoor air can't escape, fresh air and oxygen can't get in. Essentially, your house can't breathe. Heat recovery ventilation corrects this condition by providing clean, fresh air and getting rid of the stale, humid air. This process removes pollutants, controls odours, eliminates condensation and preserves the structure of the building.

How it works
1. Vents located throughout your home draw in stale, humid air from the kitchen, bathrooms, laundry room and other sources of pollutants or moisture.
2. As this air is expelled, the outside vent simultaneously draws in fresh air, warming it with heat recovered from the indoor air being expelled.
3. After passing through the ventilator, fresh warm air is released to each room in your house, either independently ducted or integrated through a forced air system.
