Ventilation systems with heat recovery

Ventilation systems with heat recovery

Ventilation systems with heat recovery increase the energy efficiency of your home. We show you how to install such a system in your home.

🏠 Understand what is a ventilation system with heat recovery.

A heat recovery ventilation system is a system that increases the energy efficiency of your home by using the heat from the exhaust air to warm the fresh supply air. Imagine you're cooking a hot bowl of soup and the steam rises. Instead of simply losing the steam, the ventilation system captures it and uses the heat to warm fresh air that is piped into your home.

🔧 Choosing the right ventilation system

There are several types of heat recovery ventilation systems that vary in efficiency and price. Some are designed specifically for certain home sizes or types. Learn about the different models and choose the one that best fits your home.

📐 Planning the installation.

Installing a ventilation system with heat recovery requires precise planning. You need to decide where the system will be installed, where the air ducts will run, and how the system will be connected to the power grid. It is helpful to have a plan of your house at hand.

👷‍♂️ Installation of the ventilation system

Now it is time to install the ventilation system. This can be a complex task, especially if you have never installed one before. It might be wise to hire a professional to ensure that the installation is done correctly and safely.

🔄 Maintenance of the ventilation system

Like all household appliances, a ventilation system with heat recovery requires regular maintenance. This includes cleaning the filters and checking the air ducts for blockages. A well-maintained system works more efficiently and lasts longer.

🌡️ Optimizing the settings

After installing the ventilation system, you can optimize the settings to maximize energy efficiency. This can include adjusting the temperatures at which heat recovery kicks in or programming the times at which the system is in operation.

💡 Monitor energy efficiency

Finally, you should monitor your home's energy efficiency to make sure the heat recovery ventilation system is actually making a difference. For example, you could compare your energy consumption before and after installation to see how much energy you're actually saving.
