I recently had some major problems with air quality in our home. Because it was in the middle of February, with outside uneven temperatures well below chilly, there was no option of opening the windows. I’ve caulked, weatherstripped, insulated and taken every precaution to seal the apartment slender and prevent energy waste. Unfortunately, our efforts have also eliminated ventilation. Contaminants are trapped inside, circulated continually by the furnace and breathed by our family. Despite correctly vacuuming, scrubbing, dusting and mopping, there was still a superb deal of debris floating around in the air and accumulating on surfaces. Even changing the air filter in the heating method and having the device professionally cleaned did not resolve the problem. I concerned that the abundance of dust, unpleasant odors and other allergens were a health threat. After researching all unusual types of air quality accessories, I decided to invest in a heat reclaim ventilator. The device installed into the heating method and provides a steady influx of fresh air separate from energy waste. The ventilator draws stale air out of the house, using it to preheat the fresh, incoming air. Not only do I get all the benefits of opening a window, the ventilation method reduces the workload of the furnace. I’ve seen a significant reduction in our daily energy costs. Plus, our beach apartment feels fresher, cleaner and far more comfortable! The ventilator runs quietly, efficiently and only requires maintenance once per year. I leave it running 24/7, and looking forward to further benefits this summer. Because the ventilator helps with excess heat and humidity, it will lessen demand on the air conditioner, saving money and improving comfort.
