Heat Recovery Ventilators in Stamford, CT by T&H Mechanical Systems
If you live in Stamford, CT we don’t have to tell you how cold it can get in the winter. That presents a unique dilemma for homeowners in the area. On the one hand, we need to keep our homes energy efficient, in order to keep our heating bills low and ensure that our indoor temperature remains comfortable during even the worst cold front On the other hand, by buttoning up our well-insulated homes against the cold, we cause the air inside to stagnate, which can result in colds, flus and other problems.

How Does an HRV Work?
The concepts behind a heat recovery ventilator are fairly simple and easy to grasp. The system is set up in your attic or similar location. Hot air rises in your home, making the attic an ideal spot for it. An air duct with a fan attached blows air form outside the house in, while a second one blows inside air out of your home. The ducts never touch and the air never crosses streams. But a heat exchanger affixed between them shifts the temperature from the outgoing air to the incoming air. As a result, the air is kept fresh and fails to stagnate without losing any of the warmth that your heater has worked so hard to generate.
Why Does That Benefit Me?
For starters, an HRV helps your home retain warm temperatures more effectively. Your heater won’t have to work as hard, lowering your monthly heating bills, and the lowered stress means it runs a reduced risk of a breakdown as well. In addition, by swapping out the stagnant air, the system helps reduce the risk of illness in your family, as well as helping your home feel fresher and more inviting. As part of a larger strategy of household energy efficiency, it can be quite effective.
