Do You Need a Heat Recovery Ventilator for Your Winnipeg Home?

Mar 17, 2017

If you reside in an area with colder climates and experience high moisture levels during the winter season, you may benefit from a heat recovery ventilator (HRV) system. They work by transferring the heat inside your home to incoming fresh air from outside, helping to prevent the following problems:

  • Unpleasant drafts in and around the home
  • Moisture problems including rot and mould
  • Damage to windows from condensation
  • Respiratory conditions caused by interior pollutants
  • Excess water vapour leak from your home

When the air in your home is too humid or too dry, you are at risk of bacteria, viruses, moulds and mites. Ensuring the humidity levels are 30% to 50% can help you avoid health risks and structural problems to your home, including cracked walls, and ceilings and furniture damage. An HRV system may be right for your home if any of the circumstances below apply:

  • You find that your skin is constantly itchy and dry and you experience occasional nose bleeds.
  • You live in a tight space and your indoor air is constantly stale and stuffy.
  • Contaminants from your garage, including car fumes, may be seeping into your home.
  • Your indoor air is continually being recirculated due to spray-foam insulation.
  • You constantly leave your windows open to help make the air in your home less stuffy.
  • You have noticed sky high energy costs during the winter months.
