Heat Recovery Ventilators in Fort Worth, Arlington, Flower Mound & Surrounding Areas
For recently built homes, one of the issues that many homeowners don’t realize they face is a lack of fresh air. Many new homes are built very air–tight in an effort to reduce the amount of conditioned air that can get out and the amount of outside air that can get in. While this is great for the efficiency of your home, it could also allow many types of pollutants to build up, including dust, pet dander, chemical fumes, smoke and many others. Heat recovery ventilators (HRVs) are components that can be retrofitted to your existing HVAC system. They allow homes to pull in fresh outside air and can also increase the efficiency of your home. AirCo is proud to provide complete heat recovery ventilator installation, repair, maintenance and replacement in Fort Worth, Arlington & Flower Mount. If you have any questions or if you need service just give us a call and one of our Dallas, TX heat recovery ventilator technicians can handle any services that you need.
Why Use Heat Recovery Ventilators in Fort Worth, Arlington or Flower Mound?
In most homes, your heating and air conditioning system don’t have that much access to fresh air from outside. Instead, they have a series of return air vents that recirculate the air in your home to be re–heated or re–cooled. This recirculation often gives pollutants the opportunity to stay in your home’s air supply. With heat recovery, your heating and air conditioning system can pull in fresh air while exhausting old, stale air outside.
Old air from your home and fresh air from outside exit and enter through the HRV, though we should mention that they never mix. Instead, heat is exchanged between the two streams of air through a heat exchanger. In the winter time, heat from the exiting air is transferred to the fresh air from outside, thus, pre–heating it and reducing the amount of energy that you have to spend to heat it. In cooling mode, the process is reversed: the cool air exiting your home absorbs heat from the air coming in making it easier for your AC to cool it.
Heat Recovery Ventilator Installation in Fort Worth, Arlington & Flower Mound
Heat recovery ventilators are typically installed near the return air vents that we mentioned earlier. This allows them to exhaust some of the stale air out of your home as well as take in new, fresh air from outside. The installation process is highly complex and should only be done by a trained professional. AirCo offers exceptional heat recovery installation no matter what type or brand of HRV system you need. If you’re not sure, just call us and one of our friendly heat recovery ventilator installation technicians can help determine exactly what size, make and model of HRV you need. Call us today!
