Increasingly, modern buildings are airtight and therefore use less energy. The downside? Indoor air can quickly become stale.
The solution? An air exchanger. This ventilation device ensures good air quality by continually drawing fresh air into the building.
Installing an air exchanger is not only about comfort—it’s also healthier. In addition to ensuring a building’s fresh air supply, it also eliminates many toxins from various sources:
- Atmospheric pollutants
- Excess moisture
- Household chemicals
You could receive financial assistance for the purchase and installation of an ENERGY STAR® air exchanger with the LogisVert Efficient Homes Program.
Greater energy efficiency
- Choose a model equipped with a heat recovery system. In the winter, these devices recover heat from the exhaust air and use it to preheat the outdoor air before drawing it inside.
- Look for ENERGY STAR® models since they are more energy-efficient.
- Clean your air exchanger regularly. The filters also need to be cleaned at least every three months.
- Make sure your air exchanger is running at all times. It should only be turned off for maintenance purposes.
