What Is An Heat Recovery Ventilator (HRV)
A heat recovery ventilator (HRV) brings in fresh air from the outside, preheats the incoming air during the winter and precools the incoming air during the summer. It can provide clean fresh air every day while helping to keep energy costs low. One set of ducts collects stale moist air from the kitchen, laundry and bathrooms. This stale contaminated air passes through the HRV unit and is exhausted to the outside. The other ducting system draws in fresh clean air from outdoors through the HRV unit. As the two air streams pass each other within the heat exchanger core, heat is transferred from the outgoing stale air to the fresh incoming air. There is no mixing of air streams.
The HRV unit is able to capture up to 85% of the energy from the outgoing stale air. Filtered, preconditioned fresh air is delivered where you need it – in the living areas of your home.
How We Clean An HRV Unit
First, we begin with an inspection of the HRV unit for any issues. We then remove the core and filter and clean them independently. We then use our HRV cleaning machine to remove all dust, dirt, and debris from your system without harming it. Our process will clean the motor, the filters, and the core simultaneously.
For and HRV cleaning, it costs only $29 to clean the unit and an additional $20 per interior vent. For a free quote, click "make an appointment" and get in touch with our team.
