What is a heat recovery ventilator?
A Heat Recover Ventilator (HRV) is integrated into the duct work in a home, usually located near the furnace. The HRV expels stale indoor air to the outside, and draws in fresh air from outside to be distributed throughout the home.
- Warm stale air from your home is drawn into the HRV.
- Heat from the indoor air is transferred via the unit’s aluminum core to the fresh air stream.
- Stale air is expelled outside, leaving its warmth behind in the HRV’s aluminum core.
- Cool fresh air is drawn into the HRV, and warmed by the heated aluminum core.
- Your entire home is filled with warm, clean, fresh air.
The air streams pass on either side of Lifebreath’s exclusive and patented aluminum core, never mixing. In the summer, the HRV works in reverse. Warm air is expelled and cool air is delivered throughout the home.
Benefits of lifebreath
Lower heating and cooling costs.
Thanks to the unique ability of a Lifebreath HRV and ERV to transfer the temperature of indoor stale air to the incoming fresh air, you’ll realize lower heating and cooling costs year round while enjoying all the benefits superior indoor air quality.
In fact, the efficiency of the Lifebreath HRV is so great that virtually none of the warmth collected from your home during winter months is lost to the outside. During summer months, the HRV works in reverse by removing heat from the incoming air and transferring it to the outgoing air, keeping your home cool and fresh.
Better indoor air quality.
Indoor air quality is a growing concern. According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, the air quality inside homes is typically 2-5 times worse than that of outside air.
With the increased prevalence of allergies, asthma and other respiratory problems in North America, it’s important to make your home environment as healthy as possible, starting with the quality of the air you breathe.
This can be difficult to do, especially in today’s energy efficient homes. While energy efficient homes are great for keeping heat inside in the winter (and outside in the summer) the tightly constructed nature of the homes make it difficult for indoor air to escape. As a result, allergens and other pollutants build up in your home, remain trapped inside, and are inhaled by you and your family members. This can have a detrimental impact on your health, especially for those who suffer from allergies and asthma.
Indoor air quality can be improved with proper ventilation. Optimal indoor air quality levels are achieved in homes that are equipped with a Heat Recovery Ventilator (HRV).
