A Heat Recovery Ventilation (HRV) system is a controlled system that reduces high humidity, pollutants and odours by replacing stale air with fresh warm air. Exhaust air is not only stale and damp but warm. This warmth is used to pre-heat fresh air as it enters your home. All HRVs have two fans and an in-built “air-to-air” heat exchanger, which transfers heat from the exhaust air stream to the cold fresh air supply. Through the natural laws of physics, whenever cold air is warmed, humidity is reduced and the result is condensation control. The two air streams are separated 100 percent at all times. The fresh air introduced into your home is warm, dry and provides a permanently fresh, healthy indoor environment. An HRV can recover up to five times more energy than it costs to operate. This level of efficiency is unmatched by any other domestic appliance. Unlike other condensation control devices, HRVs perform best when conditions are at their worst. HRVs ventilate 24 hours a day, every day.
