How Do Air Exchangers Work?
During the summer and in warm weather, the air exchanger will remove the outdoor heat and humidity before the filtered air enters the home. Typically, homes in colder climates have a heat recovery ventilator that is designed to retain heat without reducing the humidity. Some homes in all climates have an energy recovery ventilator that can remove both the heat and humidity. By having an air exchanger, you can help to provide the best possible air for your home.
In order to achieve this for your home, a complete ventilation system must be selected, installed, and operated properly. To ventilate your home properly, make sure to supply just the right amount of fresh air continuously all year long. Also make sure to have continuous exhaust with an equal amount of indoor air to help prevent any stale in your home. An exception can be when windows or doors are opened as a way of ventilating. When this happens, you can turn the air exchanger off because there is no advantage to over-ventilate your home. By doing this, you can dry out the air in your home and use excessive amounts of electrical energy.
