If you’ve heard about Heat Recovery Ventilation (HRV) systems, but don’t have one installed in your property, we’re here to provide you with a few more details. Even if you know that there is an HRV system in your property, you may not realize all of the benefits it provides. While less important during the hotter months of the year, HRV systems work to retain any heat that homes ordinarily lose. Don’t be fooled by the name. This is not a heating system in and of itself, rather is a ventilator that traps any heat escaping from grilles, trickle vents, and other areas.
Now that you understand exactly what an HRV system does, you may be wondering what the specific benefits are of installing one. Besides the obvious answer that your home will lose less heat, and in turn, you will spend less money on your monthly bills, there are a few additional reasons why these systems are useful.
For one thing, they work to constantly supply fresh air throughout your property. This will make your home more comfortable and an overall healthier environment for you and your family. In addition, you can expect no condensation or fungal growth to build up in areas like your bathrooms. Plus, because air is filtered, you can expect less dust and a cleaner house. Because air is always being changed, you can also expect your house to smell fresher.
These are just some of the many reasons why installing an HRV system is a good idea. Whether you already have one or you’re planning to get one in the future, we can keep it clean and running smoothly. It is a good idea to have these systems cleaned every few years, so give us a call the next time you need some assistance!
