Most newer homes have an HRV and have replaced fans due to their efficiency and air quality benefits throughout the home. With today’s building standards and tightly sealed homes, it’s important to have an HRV to ensure your indoor air quality is healthy for your family.

“An HRV is a controlled ventilation system that reduces high humidity, pollutants and odours by replacing stale air with fresh warm air. Exhaust air is not only stale and damp, but warm. It is this warmth that is used to pre-heat fresh air as it enters your home.” – Clean aire, 2018

TIPS

  1. During the colder time of the year the heat will dry all components so no residue of water is left.
  2. During the summer months it is recommended that you keep your fan running 15-20 minutes after air conditioner is turned off to dry out any components which could lead to mold.
