Achieve Energy Recovery Ventilation With HRVs Exhaust Fans
Heat recovery ventilators are used to recover heat that would otherwise be lost through the vents and air flow in a building. Heat recovery ventilation, sometimes called mechanical ventilation, is an air-circulation system that functions between two sources at temperatures other than indoor and outdoor temperatures. Heat recovery is an effective way that is being used increasingly to lower the cooling and heating needs of buildings.
A heat recovery ventilation (HEV) is basically a system that functions to increase the temperature of a space by capturing outside air streams and expelling it into the indoor space. This allows the heat to be recovered quickly so that a substantial increase in indoor temperature can be experienced, with the use of a more powerful fan. There are numerous reasons why a heat exchanger might be employed in a heat recovery ventilation. One reason would be to take in heat from outside air temperatures, without letting it escape through windows or doors. Another reason could be to prevent heat loss through poorly sealed windows or doors. Still another reason could be to increase the temperature of spaces that are naturally heated more than others, for example, heating hot water or heating air during winter.
A wide range of commercial buildings across numerous industries are extensively using heat-recovery ventilation as an efficient and affordable solution to improving energy efficiency in a commercial building. Some examples would include warehouses, factories, hospitals, offices, retail stores, restaurants, leisure facilities, motels, and many more. In these types of buildings, air leaks are prevalent, resulting in increased indoor air pollution. The additional cost of installing and maintaining an efficient heat recovery ventilation system can make a large difference to both the operating costs and the health and safety of employees in these types of commercial buildings. In addition, when such systems are designed and installed correctly, they are highly effective at reducing both the levels of noise and other pollutants in the building.
Heat recovery ventilators are typically constructed with steel or aluminum frames. These pipes are typically connected to larger ducts that run throughout the building, carrying fresh indoor air inside the structure and out of each individual room or space. In order to serve all of the different rooms and spaces effectively, the pipes must be able to bend, expand, and contract. As a result, some buildings have to follow building codes that specify the exact specifications of each individual room or area. For example, spaces such as bathroom walls have to be at right angles to the pipes, so the exhaust fans can be positioned in these spaces correctly.
Because heat-recovery ventilation systems are generally designed to push air in and then pull it out, they have the potential to save energy. But, unlike other systems, a heat-recovery ventilation system does not remove heat from the air. Instead, it removes the heat from the air, so it can be pushed back into the room or space where the air is needed. Because the system functions by pushing out the heat, there is no additional energy used on heating. Therefore, this type of heating and air-conditioning system reduces your energy costs, while also helping to improve the environment.
While heat-recovery ventilation fans are used in many office buildings, schools, hospitals, residential homes, and businesses, they are especially important to help provide healthy indoor air quality. Cognitive function is enhanced in these types of environments, allowing workers to work without experiencing distracting or annoying symptoms. A cognitive function related to indoor air quality, which includes fatigue, headaches, and tension, can make it difficult to focus and complete projects. These benefits help to improve the quality of your life, which helps you be more productive and on-the-go.
