We understand that most homeowners will think primarily of the temperature in their homes when considering their overall comfort. Understandable as this may be, though, the fact remains that it is equally important that you keep your indoor air quality in mind. If the quality of the air in your home is subpar, there is just no way in which you can hope to live in a comfortable, or even healthful, environment.
That is precisely why you may want to consider the use of a heat recovery ventilator in Bristol, CT. When you use an HRV, you can enjoy outstanding indoor air quality without putting the energy efficiency with which you heat and cool your home at risk. Contact us today to learn more.
What Can an HRV Do for Me?
As you well know, the summer season can be uncomfortably hot in this area. Because of this, most homeowners will seal up their homes as tightly as possible, running their air conditioners regularly in order to cool the air sufficiently. However, this is rather counterproductive when it comes to your indoor air quality. Your home needs a certain amount of ventilation in order to keep the air fresh. When you seal your home up like this, you cut out that ventilation. That’s great for efficiency, but bad for air quality.
An HRV, though, allows you to enjoy the best of both worlds. This device vents old, stale air out of your home, and uses that outgoing air in order to precondition the air coming in. During the summer, the outgoing dry, but cool, air absorbs heat from the fresh, but hot, air coming into the house. That means you won’t waste all of that energy during the ventilation process, and some of the strain is taken off of your AC. During the winter, when your device vents warm, but low-quality air, out of your home, it will transfer some of that heat to the air coming in. This allows for year round benefits, from one great piece of equipment.
