Up to 40% of a building’s energy consumption is related to heating, cooling or air infiltration. Heat recovery air exchangers can significantly reduce energy consumption by using the heat from the exhaust air to preheat the incoming air. Thus, the system allows the renewal of air without having to heat part of it during cold periods. Choosing a heat recovery ventilator is a cost-effective choice that fits perfectly into an eco-responsible construction approach.
Your home was built to be energy efficient and Lifebreath HRVs are designed to help it stay that way. In winter, the HRV’s patented aluminum core transfers heat from the stale exhaust air to the fresh air entering your home so that it does not have to be heated completely.
In summer, the HRV works the other way around by removing heat from the incoming air and transmitting it to the outgoing air to keep your home cool. Lifebreath HRVs provide fresher, cleaner air without overloading your heating and cooling system.
