Venmar EKO Heat Recovery Ventilator

Posted: 2018-05-22

During spring months, your home suffers from unsettled weather, which can be unfavorable towards keeping your home a drier and more comfortable place to live in. One of the problems this season brings is the development of pollens in the air that triggers or aggravates asthma and other respiratory diseases.

While there’s not much you can do on your outdoor environment, you can actually protect your indoor environment with the use of a ventilation system that gently flushes these contaminants away from home and keeping them from entering your abode.  This system will help remove the stale damp air and keep your home drier and healthier.

With a ventilation system, you can say goodbye to itchy eyes, runny nose or headaches. You will wake up feeling fresh and relieved. This season is a great time to pre-condition your home 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with a Venmar EKO Heat Recovery Ventilator.

What is a Heat Recovery Ventilator?

A heat-recovery ventilator (HRV) is a balanced mechanical ventilation system that fetches steady fresh, filtered air from the outside while keeping most of the comfortable indoor temperature.

These devices work by continuously eliminating stagnant, moist air from a home’s wet areas. These spaces typically include bathrooms, kitchens, and utility rooms in homes. While this occurs, filtered, fresh air is delivered to livable rooms, such as living rooms, bedrooms, and dining rooms.

Benefits of Heat Recovery Ventilation Systems

While your home can benefit from better insulation, there are even more things you can do to ensure you are making the most of the warmth in your home environment. A heat recovery ventilation system is one of them. It recycles the energy in the stale air and transfers it to the new, fresh air coming in.

Most people spend a majority of their time indoors, especially at home. About 50 percent of all illnesses are either caused by or aggravated by poor indoor air quality. With a heat recovery ventilation system, you will have filtered, fresh air circulated throughout your home all day, all night. This system will continuously eliminate stale moist air from your home, creating a healthier and more comfortable home environment.

When it comes to energy efficiency, a heat recovery ventilation system is designed to operate uninterruptedly at a low rate to minimize energy consumption. The device will significantly reduce your monthly utility bills by reusing the heat that is usually lost through standard extract systems. The heat recovered is up to twenty times the energy consumed by electric fans.

It is normal for a home that uses forced air systems to develop moisture that causes condensation and mold growth. With a heat recovery ventilator, all water vapor will be taken away as it is produced.

Greater home comfort is another benefit you will get out of a heat recovery ventilator. Regardless of weather conditions, draught-free balanced ventilation is produced all the time.

Heat recovery ventilators are also environment-friendly devices as they lower the levels of carbon dioxide.
