Put the fresh air back where it belongs
One way to combat poor indoor air quality is to ventilate your home with fresh outside air. The push for energy efficiency has all but eliminated fresh air from our homes, with buildings wrapped as tightly as they are today, it is like we are living in a plastic bag.
At AEM Mechanical Services we realize that proper ventilation is like a breath of fresh air. The average home should have at least a .35 ACH (Air Changes per Hour). An ACH of 1 means that the air in your home is changed once per hour. Newer, high efficiency homes, generally have an ACH rating of less than .35 with many reaching as low as .05 ACH. That can lead to extremely poor indoor air quality.
A HRV (Heat Recovery Ventilator) provides a simple and economical way to freshen the air. HRV units are able to conserve energy from indoor conditioned air and transfer it to the outdoor air as it's brought into your home.
How your Heat Recovery Ventilator (HRV) works
Inside the core of the unit, indoor air passes through the chamber while being exhausted from your home, while fresh outdoor air passes through the other chamber as it is drawn into your home.
As they pass each other in side-by-side chambers the heat from the indoor air is transferred to the cooler incoming air. By pre-heating the fresh incoming air you conserve energy making it easier for your home's furnace to heat the air.
No matter the size of your home, AEM Mechanical Services, Inc. has an energy efficient Heat Recovery Ventilator (HRV) unit that can provide you with fresh air in every corner of your home.
