Energy recovery ventilator

A mechanical device that draws stale air from the house and transfers the heat or coolness in that air to the air being pulled into the house. This can help reduce energy costs and dilute indoor pollutants. Energy recovery units use the heat in the building to preheat in the winter or cool air in the building during summer to chill the incoming outside air. Ultimately, they use less fossil fuel by saving electricity to warm or cool the air; therefore, the air is cleaner because there is less fossil fuel burned to make the electricity. And the incoming outside air promotes better indoor air quality.An air-to-air heat exchanger or preconditioner designed to exchange temperature and moisture properties from one airstream to another. It captures the cooling or heating energy from the exhaust air before it leaves the building.
