I live in a section where the weather is a year round problem.
All of us deal with sub zero hot plus cold temperatures, feet of snow plus ungodly windchill in the winter.
During the summer, the temperature shoots up into the high eighties with excessive humidity. Fall plus Spring can bring anything from intense heat to constant rain. Because of the demands of the weather, I switch between running the oil furnace plus relying on the air conditioner. I’m glad when there’s an opportunity to go separate from heating plus cooling, save some currency on energy bills plus open the windows. To keep costs to a minimum, I’ve taken all sorts of precautions to prevent energy waste. My home has brand new, triple pane, Energy star rated windows that I have carefully caulked around. Every exterior door has been weatherstripped. The walls, ceiling plus attic are officially insulated plus I’ve installed ceiling fans in the main rooms. I’ve managed to create a legitimately airtight home, which lessens the workload of the oil furnace plus air conditioner. However, I’ve also eliminated essential ventilation. Dust, dander plus other contaminants become trapped in the house, circulated by the Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C idea plus breathed by my family. The air can beginning to smell stale plus musty. Moisture becomes a complication in the summertime plus overly dry air is a complication in the winter. The solution to all of these negatives is a heat reclaim ventilation system. The ventilator installed right into the heating/cooling unit plus operates all afternoon, every afternoon, all year round. It introduces fresh outside air into the home separate from energy waste. It absolutely makes use of the stale outgoing air to preheat the incoming air during the winter. The home stays cleaner plus fresher. Plus, there’s less issue with humidity in the summer, which reduces strain on the air conditioner.
