Fresh Air Ventilation in Naperville, IL from Leslie Heating & Cooling

You probably try to seal up your home to make sure that the heating and cooled air you pay for stays in your home. While this is a terrific way to increase efficiency, it can cause the air quality in your home to suffer. A great way to make sure that your home gets all the fresh air it needs is with a fresh air ventilation system.

Leslie Heating & Cooling offers complete fresh air ventilation services for homes throughout the Naperville, IL area. This is typically accomplished with a heat recovery ventilator (HRV). An HRV allows air to come into your home in a controlled way that increases the air quality in your home without giving up the precious heating or cooling that you’ve paid for.

Leslie Heating & Cooling of Woodridge, IL services the greater Chicagoland area, including Lisle, Downers Grove, Naperville and Darien.

How Do Heat Recovery Ventilators Work?

HRV systems are really pretty simple. They allow your furnace or AC system to pull in fresh air and exhaust stale air. Simultaneously, they allow you to recovery some of the heat energy from the exhaust air before it escapes outside. The HRV does this by passing the warm, stale air over a heat exchanger where the heat is collected and distributed to the incoming, cooler, fresh air. The two streams of air normally aren’t mixed because that would allow the contaminated, stale air to mix with the fresh air. This process can be done in both heating and cooling mode, and can potentially increase the efficiency of both your heating and air conditioning systems.

Benefits of Heat Recovery Ventilators

While opening a window is a form of ventilation, the energy and humidity inside your home will be lost and you will let in outside contaminants. HRV systems are designed to allow for proper ventilation while protecting the air quality, humidity and energy inside your home or building. Most HRV systems have a filter system that cleans the air as it comes into your home. These types of filters are installed after the HRV has exchanged heat between the incoming outdoor air and the outgoing exhaust air. Additionally, HRVs can also improve the climate in your home by regulating humidity. Instead of just pulling in dry, cool air in the winter, the humidity levels of the outgoing air can also be recovered and transferred to the incoming air. This will keep your home more comfortable and promote energy efficiency.
