HRV – Heat Recovery Ventilators

Heat Recovery Ventilator

Studies have shown that the air in our homes is much more contaminated than outdoor air. When we seal up the home to save energy the pollutants from cleaning supplies, paints and furniture are trapped in the air we breath. The HRV can be considered the lungs of our home, exhausting the bad air and delivering fresh air into our home.

Benefits of a HRV:

  • Health: Filtered fresh air is circulated throughout your home day and night. On average most people spend over 80% of their time indoors. 50% of all illnesses are either caused by, or aggravated by poor indoor air quality. The Lifebreath HRV System will continuously remove stale moist air from your home creating a more suitable and healthy place to live.
  • Energy Efficiency: A HRV system will save you money and reduce your energy requirements for heating by re-using the heat that is normally lost through poor construction. A HRV system is also designed to operate continuously at a low rate to minimize the electrical energy consumption.
  • Condensation Control: All water vapour will be removed as it is produced. As a result there is no moisture condensation which causes rot, damp, condensation or mold growth.
  • Comfort: Comfort levels are superior in a house fitted with a HRV system.
