House plans are all about fresh air
Written by: Hilary Daninhirsch
This mechanical ventilation system allows a continuous supply of fresh air to get into a building and improves climate control in the whole house, something particularly important for tightly sealed homes. Specifically, said Michael Merck, president of West Penn Energy Solutions, “They provide fresh, balanced indoor air to the home while recovering heat in the exhaust air. This recovered heat is then put back into the intake air—hence, heat recovery. Ultimately you are ridding the home of stale air, all the while capturing heat you are paying for, plus you are bringing fresh air into the home.”
