Benefits: 

Heat Recovery Ventilator (HRV)

Heat Recovery Ventilator (HRV)

This piece of equipment acts as the lungs of your home. Today’s homes are built to be less drafty than in the past and while this means improved comfort, it also means less fresh air in your home, unless of course you have an HRV. The HRV introduces fresh air that gets distributed throughout the home and captures energy from exhaust air to reduce your heating and cooling costs. This provides superior indoor air quality and helps save you money.
