It uses the outgoing, stale air to preheat the fresh air, which lessens demand on the gas furnaceâ€¦ During the summer, the ventilator helps to get rid of excessive humidity & minimizes the workload of the a/c
I resent spending a ton of currency on energy bills every month. Because of living in an area with harsh weather, heating & cooling is just about a year round requirement. I try to be conservative with temperature control settings & yet heating & cooling is responsible for about fifty percent of my utility expenses. To trim costs, I’ve taken a whole bunch of energy saving measures. I’ve replaced insulation levels, replaced windows, caulked & weatherproofed. I’ve eliminated leaks & tightened up the thermal envelope. I noticed a significant improvement in the operation of the gas furnace & a/c, but suddenly had complications with air quality. The house started to guess musty & dry, & there was an increase in the level of dust & other allergens floating in the air, then when I mentioned my concerns to my usual Heating & Air Conditioning company, he requested the upgrade of a ventilation system, and he said that I’d eliminated the necessary influx of fresh air. Because of this, the pollutants were trapped inside & getting circulated continuously by the heating & cooling system. The ventilator is a lot like having an open window, but without the energy waste. It brings fresh air into the house to replace the stale air. It uses the outgoing, stale air to preheat the fresh air, which lessens demand on the gas furnaceâ€¦ During the summer, the ventilator helps to get rid of excessive humidity & minimizes the workload of the a/c. Investing in the ventilation system has trimmed my utility costs far more than all of my energy saving attempts, and plus, the loft stays cleaner, stinks better & even feels more comfortable. The ventilation system runs 24/7, all year round, but requires absolutely little service.
